A Voyage of Discovery!

Every day you learn something new! This week we celebrate the success of Janice, who has just completed the Bronze standard of the Discovery Award. This is a version of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme for youngsters over the age of fifty. The four areas undertaken in this award are:-
- Service to the Community, Hobby, Recreation and Journey of Discovery. Janice has already started working towards the Silver standard. Well done Janice!

Margaret has been learning a new crochet technique from Donna's Crochet Class. This lovely little baby blanket was worked in an Off-set Ripple Stitch which has a great textured finish to it.

This miniature cross stitch wall-hanging was a kit Margaret found in a magazine. She was really taken with it and worked it for her Mum as a gift for Mother's Day.

  Helen donated this cosy, brown hat to the Seafarers charity.

Morag added some designer stripes to her charity hat.

Ester made this bonnie baby hat and bootees set. Beautiful work.

Jean has been busy creating these cute mini boots for her grandchildren. She even had time to make a distinguished hat for our group charity.

Sharon is bang up to date with this vintage style baby jacket and I just love the little knitted shoes!

Caroline caught everyone's attention while she was finishing off this beautiful seasonal gift. The daffodils were crocheted and added to pipe cleaners to completed the flower look. Such a cute idea! Spring is in the air!
