All Kinds of Everything!

Caroline was delighted with this very apt Wedding Gift made by Norma. A wonderful keepsake.

Phyllis created this lovely shawl with a sparkle using ICE YARN. The pattern is German Scalloped.

Lisa invited Phyllis to visit her studio and even allowed her to play with the dye pots! This scarf is hand dyed by Phyllis and the pattern was created by Phyllis and is for herself. The second picture is a cozy hat made for her darling grandson using aran yarn. The pattern is called To The Point.

Allison is very fond of using Fluttterby yarn and this baby wrap pattern is one of her regular makes because it is so soft and practical and adorable.

Norma has been busy making lots of odds and ends for craft fairs. At the moment she is very much in love with these little baby slippers.

Fran has found time to make something for herself. She was inspired by this DK yarn that her sister brought back from Turkey and crocheted this c2c shawlette. Fran has also been planning ahead for the winter and made this cowl using yarn from Woolly Knits.

Kat has been to Turkey and brought back this DK yarn to make a Road Trip shawl. Kat has had fun experimenting with colour and shape. This star blanket is stunning and is intended  for her BOX!  For those new to the group.......this means that the garment will be put aside until it is required OR you feel strong enough to part with it!

Izzi has a friend going to work in a country ending in .....stan! We can all be a bit forgetful! Anyway, Izzi made 20 pencil cases to be sent out to there as gifts for local children.

Izzi also made this magnificent quilt for Granny Janice to give to baby Christopher. Stunning!

I've been playing with hexagons and paper piecing to create a small table mat. My hands are acting up so with this I can do a little at a time.

Janice made some of the little fabric trinket baskets and is well ahead with Christmas preparations. How many weeks is it until Christmas?

Roberta has also been busy making fabric baskets and I love the way a different fabric can change the look of an item. Thes are easy and fun to make.

The Happy Hookers will be participating in the Beatson charity walk on Sunday 16th August.

The Scottish Quilt Championships will be on show at Ingliston Friday 25th  to Sunday 27th September.

We meet in Conference Room as usual on Tuesday night.
