Shoe Box charity Thank You.

Linda wanted to thank everyone who donated a scarf or hat to the Shoe Box charity. She was so delighted that she said it with CHOCOLATE! The gift was well received. Well done to everyone who participated.

Stephanie has taken to sewing like a duck to water. She proudly displayed this storybook quilt which she had completed for Yorkhill Hospital. Valerie Lennox is one of the co-ordinators for this charity which supplies quilts for seriously ill kids in Yorkhill. Any little child would be delighted to own this quilt. Well done Stephanie.

Isabel was so impressed with Fiona's crochet hook holder that she was determined to make one for herself. The vibrant colour should mean that it won't get lost! We hope.

Norma has been busy in her wee crafting house in the garden. This week she has made a cosy snowball hat, two lovely hats with flower detail and an intricate pram blanket. It looks as if we all need a crafting den. Well done, Norma.

Fran was delighted to show off this great infinity scarf which she crocheted for herself. Now she is all set for winter.

Audrey is a big fan of the 1920's styles and made this stylish closh hat for those chilly days ahead.

Magda proudly displayed this stunning blanket that she crocheted for her son Adam. Its title of this is Adam's choice because he chose the colours.

Elaine has been busy creating four lovely hats for the Shoe Box charity. How does she find the time to knit and make Cakes?

Roberta amazed us with a wealth of finishes this week. She has the sewing bug and made these two wll-hangings for Christmas. The fingerless mitts, crocheted hats and the knitted cardigans were made for the Shoe Box charity. Well done, Roberta! What do you do in your spare time?

Sandra has been busy preparing for a new grandchild. These wee hats are so versatile and cute!

Libby has been getting back into crochet again after a gap of some years. This bonnie wee jacket is for a new baby.

Talented Lisa from For the Love of Yarn had been to Yarndale recently and asked customers to add a few stitches to a granny square which will eventually become a blanket that will be donated to Yorkhill. Such a lovely idea. Our group were given the opportunity to participate in this event.

June completed this amazing frilly can-can scarf  for herself on Tuesday night. Everyone seems to be gearing up for a stylish winter.

Margaret was one of our group who added some stitches to to the Yorkhill blanket.

Laura, one of our new members, has been busy knitting fabulous wee hats for the Big Knit which supports Age UK.
