October Offerings

 Angie excelled herself at group by actually taking out her pretty needle-case. That is as far as it got, but she enjoyed herself and that's what it's all about!
 Lynda was cutting some HST units from a sheet that she had sewn.  Will they ever be used? Who knows, but they are cute😏

 These were the sheets that she used to make multiple HST's  - a great time saver
 Kathy was pleased to show the pretty pouch that she has made with her orphan EPP pieces
 Chris has tidied up for the first time in ....... years and discovered this Candlewick embroidery piece, which she says she will finish (before the end of the year) we shall see 😜
 Val .. well I am not sure what Val was making, but she had a very pretty Mug Rug
 Kay is back on her activity book . It will be lovely when its done.

Ann was busy working on her Crazy Patchwork block that will become a Linus quilt
 Mrs Beal's apprentice has been promoted to "Panel Stitcher"  after her report card read "much improved"
a Doggy panel
 June is appliqueing onto a thread-work background

 Muriel has begun working on a lovely child's quilt design

 Shirley had been on a beading course and still has a way to go before this poppy brooch will be finished.
and it will be beautiful
 Ellen is working on a super secret piece

 Which may or may not resemble the candle holder that CUC will be showing us how to make in November

 Maureen is (MAD!!) making a tiny tiny tiny piece of lace for her God Daughter

 There were several beaded tea lite covers appearing after the September workshop

 Bridget wanted everyone to know that this little work of art had ONLY taken her 3 weeks to complete

 Lynda had been to a Anja Townrow workshop and was adding the final touches.  It was going to be a book cover, but she may create something else that will show it off nicely.

 Three of the ladies belong to a Flickr Group - Mini Mania Challenge. Septembers Challenge was "Circles" 

Kim Porter came to group on Wednesday to talk on her Washed and Worn Quilts.   A great evening but I failed to take any photos.  Shame you weren't there πŸ˜•

Just a Heads Up that Joan Fisher will be coming to us on 6th November to give her talk on The Tent-makers of Cairo
