First of the Shoebox Appeal

We had our first contributions to our shoebox appeal charity this week. Both were by Isobel. Isobel is also a quilter and she used up some of her stash to make this lovely blanket and pillow set. Any little girl would love it. She also used some lovely fabric to make a little bag. She also very kindly made one for Suzanna.

Val has also been busy with her quilting. For the Glasgow Gathering she took part in a challenge to design her own piece of quilting. It had to be A2 in size. The circular pattern is a quilt block called New York Beauty. She did two of these and then designed the quilting in between. Truly looks stunning and I hope it's not the last she will design.

Elaine finished her large granny square blanket. She originally started with yarn she picked up at one of our swap nights. We think it may have come from Magdalena as the ball band was in Polish. There was only enough to go so far so she used black and white to edge the centre square. Looks very effective and is very cosy. She promised to make another for her niece.
