 There seems to be quite a bit of knitting and crochet going on at group at the minute ...

But Kay had managed to finish her (very very old)table topper that was a group project MANY years ago!
lovely all the same
 Ellen is blanket stitching another High Tea Fusion quilt ready to be joined with a crochet border

this design has proved popular

 June has made another box - this time to hold napkins
 June has alsi used part of an old metal tape measure to make one of the "snappy" purses
 Hexagons are still proving popular
 And some secret sewing that I am not able to show you yet.
