Happy New Year!

Yes we are back and all fresh. I have lots of photo finishes for you. First of all though I hope you all had a fab New Year. Sadly I didn't write down what people were working on. We can though welcome two new members. Lyn and Fiona came along for the first time on Tuesday. Lyn was crocheting blankets for charity and Fiona was learning to crochet. Lyn also brough along lots of goodies for the group. Thank you Lyn!

I also have some fantastic news. Our Donna is expecting her first baby. This of course means that we will have a baby shower this year. Congratulations Donna!

 Our Dawn didn't make it along on Tuesday but the week before she had emailed me with this photo. Evidence that she has indeed finished knitting a pair of socks. They look fab too. Wonder if I will be able to convince her to knit more?

Anthea was lucky enough to get a Kindle for her Christmas. It's her new baby which she carries everywhere with her. So she made it this cute crochet case.

Stephanie has also been busy knitting this lovely sparkly jumper. Also, this one is not being carefully put away. It had been intended for herself but is now going to her daughter.

 Linda finished this lovely crochet blanket using variegated yarn. This one is done in granny stripes which was taught to us by Donna.

Roberta was also knitting for other people. She knitted this lovely jumper for her son. She says the arms might look too long but if she had went by the pattern they would have been too short.

Helen brought along this beautiful cushion. It's done by weaving ribbon and she was taught how to make it by Carol who ran a class at one of the quilting groups. This was very much admired by everyone.

Magdalena started knitting this beautiful lacy scarf a few years ago. It was intended for her sons Christening (he is now 3). All that had to be done was to pull in the ends. So when she came across it again she finished it off. It looks lovely.

She has also been busy with her sewing. Magdalena has made another dress for her daughter's Irish dancing.  It always amazes me to see the detail in her work. It shouldn't mind you, she is such a talented lady.

I am sure this only the start of many fantastic finishes this year. We do have some more events planned too. The first is a swap night which will take place on the 24th January.
