We had another new member, Jill, who is also a cross stitcher. She just finished this lovely cross stitch from the Cath Kidston book. It's even backed up by some lovely Cath Kidston fabric.
Helen also had a few finishes. After learning how to do Japanese folded quilting she stitched the blue mat. I love the colours she used and I know there are a few members who are wanting to give it a go. She also made a Japanese folded bag but she experimented with some variegated thread and fancy stitches from her sewing machine. It was quite effective.
Anthea has not long taken up crochet but she has yet another finish. She was crocheting this lovely shrug only last week. She used a lovely purple and a variegated yarn to give it that effect. She is now working on some granny stripes.
Elaine finished another granny square blanket using striping yarn. I really love the effect. She spent the evening adding fringe to a lovely scarf. She did finish it but wants to add some crystals to really set it off so no photo's yet.
Linda also had a couple of finishes. She was also working on a granny square blanket. Contrary to the photo it's actually more purple than blue. She also crocheted this lovely hat and scarf set. All of these are for the shoebox charity.
