Charity Makes.

Janice has had a busy time this week making Beatson Bags and a Twiddle muff. All makes will be appreciated. If anyone has some fabric that would do boys or men, please bring it along.

When Janice and Stephanie and I were at the Village Patchers quilting group we asked for some fabric and were then inundated with requests for the bag pattern. The ladies at the Village Patchers will do us proud.  Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer.  

 Morag has two more makes this week. After a long rest from knitting she is really getting back into the swing of it. The little hooded jacket she adapted from a pattern and was just using up bits of yarn that she had at home. The jacket is for her new great-grandson. The jumper is for her other great-grandson. Beautiful work, Morag.

I completed a table mat for my kitchen table.The hexagons were paper pieced and machine quilted.

Magda started the jumper on the left for her husband three years ago! Other projects just got in the way. I'm sure he will appreciate this fab jumper this winter. The jumper with the stripes is for Zuzanna. Magda is confident that Zuzanna will grow into it in time. Baggy is in this year.

Izzi needed a light-weight bag to take to the crafting group, and she made this! It was well admired! We love it, Izzi.

Jillian bought this yarn and needed a project to show it off. The little bolero is ideal and will live in her box until it is needed.

June had great fun making this Twiddle Muff and Stephanie kindly sewed it up and decorated it for her. Teamwork!

Roberta completed the little blanket for her bottom drawer. She also had some yarn that she didn't know what to do with. Eventually, she knitted this amazing cardigan. Roberta's third finish was the circular shawl which she made for someone at the charity shop she volunteers in. It has still to be blocked but it looks amazing.

A wee reminder that the RED Challenge is 6th October. Lots of prizes to be won.

Izzi will collect the Twiddle Muffs and Beatson Bags as Allison is away.

Isabel has CD's for sale in aid of the Beatson. Sadly, her sister died of cancer three years ago and her sister's husband has recorded an album to raise funds for the Beatson. These could make great Christmas presents!

Lisa has passed on a request from Yorkill for baby cardigans and hats for older children undergoing treatment for cancer. These children feel the cold terribly and also need blankets. So....if you have any spare time.....please help.

I am sure Linda will soon be reminding us about the Shoe Box Charity which we support each year.

I know that some of our members fell that they are drowning in requests for makes. I believe that we should just stick to the above named charities until January 2016 and then reassess the situation.

Happy Crafting!
