Bling! Bling!

Jean produced another of her stunning bracelets this week. I'm always amazed by the intricate detail found on each one. This was a special commission for Stephanie.

Love those funky boots! Jean also feel in love with the pattern and just had to make these wonderful slippers. And in her spare time, Jean was able to make this tea-bag hat for her lovely grand-daughter.

Talent, talent and even more talent pops up on a regular basis at this group. Jillian found this pattern in Mandors and was inspired to create this stunning coat. She is also in the process of finishing off another coat for her daughter. Can't wait to see that one!

This beautiful Ballerina cloth doll will be loved and treasured by a little girl who will have a special Christmas. The doll is a creation by Caroline P and has been made for a friend's grand-daughter. Not to be outdone, Caroline completed this fabulous little Christmas jumper for her own grandson.

Busy Norma has been making these very popular coin purses. Look at the size of the miniature purse!

Breath taking! Catriona has a style all of her own. The eye-lash yarn just gives the little cape and hat a touch of luxury.

Sandra was celebrating completing this pompon pram cover. It took a while because Sandra was only able to use one hand. Fabulous.

Lorraine knitted this little hat and dress set for a friend who will become a mum in February. She will be delighted with this gift.

Paula has been learning to crochet. recently she completed a couple of granny squares just to learn the stitches. This cowl is Paula's first completed project and I just adore the bit of bling that she used to finish it off. I wonder what she will make for her next project?

Peek-a-boo! Magda was thrilled with her new mitts. It isn't often that she has time to make something for herself but her hands had been cold and she just happened to have some of Lisa's double knitting yarn and..... the picture says it all.

Fiona Orr has been learning to crochet by watching video tutorials and then following directions from a crochet guide book. This hat was based on a pattern supplied by Phyllis. So clever!

Esther knitted this great hat. This is the woman who says that she never finishes anything! Esther, it is beautiful!

Isabel enjoys doing colour work socks. This magnificent pair is for a friend at work.

The Christmas Party night will be on Tuesday 2nd November. Eats and drinks will be supplied. Please bring a small gift for our traditional gift sharing performance that is organised by Elaine. The gift could be something you were given as a present and didn't get around to using or if you wish to buy something.....please do not spend any more than £5.

The Conference Suite will be refurbished in the month of May 2015. The group will meet in Hobbycraft during that time.

Karen is updating the e-mail list for the group. If you would like to receive e-mails about future events, and don't already do so, please give your details to Karen or Margaret.

Tuesday 2nd November will be our last official gathering before Christmas as parking becomes an issue leading up to Christmas. Tuesday 6th January 2015 will be our starting date.
