 This fabulous feline was crafted by Margaret and named Lucy. The colours compliment Margaret's new sofas beautifully. However, the cat may be adopted by one of Margaret's daughters and follow her home!

I had some spare supplies in my stash and used them to make some book marks for the care home that Morag supports. Later in the year she intends having a vintage stall selling bric-a-brac and a handmade stall selling little crafted items to raise funds for the home.

As you know June enjoys doing granny squares. This week she completed a lovely blanket which she intends to donate to the Spring Fayre at her church.

Robertawas delighted to show off this collection of baby bootees.Spring is in the air and lucky Roberta has five babies to knit for.

This gorgeous baby jumper is another garment that Roberta has knitted for her niece who is about to become a grandmother.

Aileen has really taken to sewing! This stylish dress was created from a bought vest top and the skirt section was made from the bottom part of a large t-shirt that she cut to size. Aileen then used her trusty sewing machine to create an original summer dress. What a great idea! Now all Aileen needs is some sunshine!

Still anticipating a hot summer this year, Aileen made a little summer skirt to show off her tan. Great ideas!

How cute is this? Fiona gave Swati a little crochet kit called Sweet Melody Kitten to try as Swati is developing her crochet skills. It looks fab!

Roberta and Linda are great supporters of our group charity knit for Seafarers. I am sure these cosy hats will be greatly appreciated by the sailors who receive them.

You may not recognize this colourful yarn but, in fact, it is the same Tussah silk yarn that Anthea spun a few weeks ago. Since then, Anthea has had fun experimenting with hand-dyeing colours to enhance her fabulous yarn. The colours are truly beautiful and I can't wait to see what Anthea transforms this yarn into. Watch this space!

Elaine always has something on the go. This week she completed a great hat and scarf combo for the Shoe Box Appeal.
