These beautiful table runners were also stitched by Val. The red one isn't quite finished yet (not that you can tell from the front). It's also planned as a Christmas gift.
These bags are one of Val's specialities. She has made one for Helen who now uses it as her knitting bag. She even gives workshops on how to make them. These bags were made during those workshops and I believe Val mentioned she was also willing to sell these particular ones.
As this was our last week until January 6th I thought I would take some photo's of everyone working and chatting away. The photo above shows Val working on her cross stitch and Ginnie knitting a pair of dance socks. As well as being a knitter both are also quilters.
This is Janette. She is currently knitting a jacket using three different shades of green together. It looks very affective and will be lovely and warm when finished. Janette is also a quilter.This is Julia and Helen. Julia is working on knitting a Santa Clause. She just has a few pieces to do and then she can put him all together. We will get a finished photo of him after Christmas. Helen is knitting a scarf using soya yarn. It's the same design that she used for her daughter. This one is in lovely shades of pink.
Another reminder that we will be back on Tuesday January 6th. All new members are more than welcome. If I receive any finished pictures from the group I will post them here during our break.
