We have had a busy couple of weeks at Group, starting with the Monday ladies making a Car Caddy Bag
But first a look a Carol's humongous bruise, acquired after she fell of her bike!!
|worth dropping her trouser for|
Some of the ladies also decided that they would have a raffle to help boost the funds that Carol wanted to raise.
The Car Caddy - a simple little bag with a hidden pocket
If you want to make one for yourself, this was the Tutorial that we used.
Lots of other things have been going on
Lynda B's finished (yes finished) miniature Flying Geese

Kathy has found more hexagons to join together
An embellished hanging star
Ann was making some beautiful beaded necklaces
Debbie was sewing the binding down on her Christmas quilt
More Applique from Elaine
Some pretty Cross Stitch
Pauline has made a lovely book-cover
Muriel was making fabric flowers that will be displayed in her local church Flower Festival
Bridget was binding her disappearing Nine Patch quilt
There's been quite a bit of knitting and crochet .....
Ena making a crochet shawl
And Maureen a knitted one
They want lots of different sized knitted Pink Ribbons
The Wednesday ladies shad an evening making the Flex Frame Bag
All pieces were cut out prior to the evening so sewing could start as soon as they were set up.
The following Wednesday saw Irene visit us again to talk about the Dress A Girl Around the World Charity.
We had opened the evening to the public and set up a bit of a display of some f the items that members have made.
Irene had brought some samples of the items that are sent, mostly via visitors to the orphanages and villages that are sponsored. She gets lovely pictures of the children that are given the dresses or shorts (sometimes its the only item of clothing that they own )
|Thank you sooooo much girls xxx|
and there was a lovely selection of other dresses made that were handed over to Irene
|these crochet top ones were particularly popular|
Next months Wednesday workshop will be Beverly's Sea Creature.
Requirements will be over on the Diary page shortly.
