Sorry this post is somewhat late but I'm sure you'll agree that we've all been so busy and I will close up the old year really well with several African hangings and quite a bit of Christmas activity.
Happy New Year to everyone and I hope you will make 2018 a creative one.
Thanks to Pat Mac who gave us a really enjoyable workshop where we made African themed wall hangings with batik backgrounds and effectively appliquéd silhouettes of animals and people.
The fabulous finished results are coming in gradually......
A background from Jo before the appliqué was applied
Don't be fooled by Marie's folk style skirt.....
It's really a super huge Christmas Tree base cover that Kathy is making!
Val has just finished this lovely quilt for a little member of her family in time for Christmas.
Mo's creativity produced this fabulous unusual wreath using recycled old jewellery
For our Christmas get together and our last meeting of the year we enjoyed mince pies and raffles and
big thanks go out for the Pass the Parcel, which was kindly provided by Val. Some funny ones and some little treasures but lots of laughs both in opening the wrappings as well as the contents. .
It was a shame to unwrap it!
Josie, our chairperson, presented Sue with a gift in recognition and thanks for all her work upon retiring as our group treasurer.
Veronica showed us some lovely makes (above). A Celtic table centre and a mediaeval design wallhanging made in rich velvet.
Last, but certainly not least, Lorna made this striking modern quilt as a gift for her niece.
