Project Day

 It was a hive of activity on Monday as we had a "Four Corners" Project Day.  Though there were FIVE projects on offer!

Bernice showed us how to make a paper pieced Pentagon ball  that you could add a ralltle to if you wished.  This used up some of our scraps!
The ball in two sizes and a nearly finished Tissue cover
 Pauline showed us how to make a Tissue packet cover

Shirley's Angels proved to be very popular
And she even showed how to make a little box to store him

 Pam had brought in some Red-Work designs on a Christmas theme

too much talking Lesley !

Ellen had provided the pattern for a huge Pig Pincushion.

 And Kathy got three items to just finish off.

 A BIG Thank You 
 to the ladies that sorted these projects out!!

 around the room there were other items being made...

Mrs Beal had returned from holiday and had set her apprentice on again

 Bridget was using a Lynnette Anderson pattern to make a memory quilt for her beloved Pepper who passed recently
 Linda was showing off TWO finished items

 Janis was working on a Hexagon cushion

 And Jan was proudly showing a Sun Bonnet Sue quits that she had finished.

Shirley will be coming along on Wednesday to show those ladies how to make the angels, and there will also be a couple of other projects to make.

A Weeks Roundup

 Nikki and Sue have both started new projects

Nikki is using this book

 And has got this far with her Quilt!
 Sue was using a kit

 And has completed the applique panel and is ready to piece the border
 Chloe has progressed well on her Tapestry

 It's not quite finished, but Liz has made another stunning quilt on a Jungle theme

 Debbie was congratulated on how well her Hexagon piece is coming on, but then she told us it was to be a King size - A way to go yet Debbie!

 Elaine was working on a Woven Basket piece

Barbara is working a Red-Work Christmas piece

Chris is making a lovely Teddy themed quilt 

Ellen was sewing her knitted bunny together
cute tail!
 We aso had lots more finished pieces from Janis' May workshop

This one is not finished but Angie has added loads of embelishment

Kathy has made two cushions

 A Bag from Ellen

 Another cushion from June

Ena was also adding stitching to her panel

 Mrs Beal was away this week, but Janis took her apprentice under her wing and had set Pauline on sewing more Hexagons together

Some of the ladies belong to an online Challenge group, and this month's design was Cathedral Window.





 And Carol's


 In two weeks it is our Four Corners 
(Three Corners for Wednesday ladies)

Please  don't forget that we will need the requirements will be needed

I know that the two groups at the top of the Monday group have sorted their projects out

The Coven Corner will be making a Tissue cover with a difference (photo to follow)

 And C.U.Corner are making these beaded angels, kits will be supplied and you need to add your name to the list so that Shirley knows how many kits to bring

 I will add the requirements to the Diary Page as soon as I have been given them.

There was a certain lack of information from the other two corners so you had better get your thinking caps on ladies!!!

We need a small project that you can complete in a couple of hours - No big deal!!
