Like her mum, our youngest knitter is very talented. Zuzanna also does Irish dancing and has won lots of awards. Magdalena decided that she would make her next Irish dancing dress. You can see from the photo's just how much detail went into it, front and back. The white detail on the purple top was hand embroidered. Magdalena's next sewing project is to make herself a coat.

Margaret has also been busy stitching away. A very different kind of stitching mind you. She has just finished a Christmas cross stitch for herself and some Christmas cards.

Still on the Christmas theme Helen made these lovely personalised cards for Stephanie. Very unusual in the way they stand up and definitely a keepsake as they have each of Stephanie's grandchildren's names on them.

Dawn also had a finish. She knitted these fingerless gloves for her friends Christmas. These ones were don't without DPNs and match the hat she knitted not so long ago.

Dawn was asked to make a blanket for a friend. As she didn't have time her mum, Moira, offered to do it instead. Here it is all finished. I love the edging which was admired by others too.

Another Christmas related finish. I managed to finish a shawl for my gran. Was quickly back onto knitting socks that night.

Last but not least we have a finish from Josephine. She crocheted this lovely cardigan for her niece. The buttons were attached that very night.

This is Helen trading in another one of her vouchers. Val had offered to teach her to quilt. She has had a few lessons but both decided to take advantage of the space to add the other layers. She is quilting a lovely Christmas table runner. Can't wait to see it finished!

Our last day is on the 14th December and we will be having our first small Christmas party to celebrate. Also next wee (7th) Carol has offered to give her Japanese quilting demo (demo rather than a class due to time constraints). Knitting group contributions will be going to her hospice charity as a thank you.
