Bags of Fun!

Stephanie has had a busy week crafting. She managed to find time to make two scarves for the Shoe Box charity and.....

....had great fun working on this bag from a kit she bought at Purely Patchwork in Linlithgow a few weeks ago. The quilted effect was created by using shrink fabric which reacted to the heat of an iron. It was amazing to see this happening and Stephanie and I hope to demonstrate this process in a couple of weeks time.

Fiona has joined a sewing class in a local school and is learning how to use a sewing machine and develop her sewing skills through basic projects. I love the motif.

The white scarves were made by Roberta for the Shoe Box charity. Any wee girl would be delighted to get one of these.

Roberta also knitted these jumpers for an African charity.

As you can see Roberta has been really productive and made this lovely baby jacket in pink yarn which has a lovely sparkle.

The Mini Mouse hat was created by Kathleen. She adapted the pattern she had for a beanie and ended up with cute hat.

Margaret has also been busy this week adding another two scarves to our charity. 

As you can see Karen has been busy doing a bauble scarf and here she is passing on her knowledge to Dawn.

Lynn finished this beautiful blanket and add the crochet flowers that  were included in one of our Gartmore classes.

Lynn would like to remind everyone that this is "World knit in public week." Everyone is invited to come along to Hobbycraft on Saturday between 11am and 1pm and join in. In the past members have supported this event and were made very welcome. So if you are free come along for a chat and bring your latest project.

On Saturday Stephanie and I went along to Hampden Park to support Alzheimer Scotland. Someone had the great idea to cover Hampden in quilts. As you can see many quilters contributed quilts to be sold in aid of this charity. The rest of the quilts would be given to altzeimer suffers. It was an amazing display of colour, skill and generousity.

And finally......... when we had a baby shower for Sheena I gave her an I.O.U. for a baby album. As you know Charlotte arrived and I put together a scrapbook  album to hold some of the photographs of Charlotte's first year. I know that Charlotte will keep Sheena and Simon busy. I just wonder if this album is big enough.
