Post Holiday Catch Up

 So, whilst the bosscat, I was away, the work continued and we have some new things to show you.

Elaine is working on a pretty scrappy animal quilt

 Debbie has finished off a quilt using London prints.

 Annette ia sewing down the binding on one of two I Spy quilts that she is making.

Bridget has finished her 4th Redwork block
 Lynda is still piecing those tiny Flying Geese
 Eileen is on Angel Applique

Toni is putting together some tiny pretty Hexi's
 Mrs Beal is appliqueing Teddies

Alison is working on a Luna Lapin toy

Kay has been making some very pretty beaded decorations

And the CUC ladies are now on a mission to help Higham Town Council create their own Field of Poppies .  All these made in a couple of hours.

Hopefully we will all make at least two Crochet, knit or fabric poppies to add to the haul.  

Suggested Patterns are over on the Tutorial page, but you can use any pattern/design that you like

We are hoping to add at least 100 to the collection by the middle of October 

Ann brought in a pile of rescued Linus Quilts.  These had been donated to the local Women's Refuge , but the Refuge was closed (virtually overnight)  and the quilts were taken to the Daylight Centre in Wellingborough where Ann volunteers.  
They are now being re-directed back to our Linus Coordinator.    

Our next All Day will see these cute Elves being created.

Requirements List is on the Diary page

It Has been a Frantic Summer

But here are some photos that were taken at Group since the last post

Lots of pretty dresses made for the Dress a Child Charity


And some of the projects that the ladies worked on 

 More flowers for the Breast Cancer Yarn-bomb

 Mrs Beal's first knitting for 70+ years!!

 Mrs Beal tutored a Chenille workshop

 It will be interesting to see what these pieces of fabric will be made up into

Thank you Mrs Beal for a great day!

The Craft Club girls had put out a request for crochet Apples to decorate a tree and be sold of the Alzheimers Society.  Needless to say there was a bit of a competition to see how many we would make

Ellen won!

 The girls had hoped for 100 - they received 434!!!
 The tree looks fabulous and they are well over half way to their £500 target
Thank you ladies for your continued contributions xxx
