Undercover work!

Magda was keen to model this underskirt that Anthea had made as part of her college course work. The underskirt is in the style used around 1600/ 1700. Very elegant!

Norma is full of good ideas for Christmas. Above is a snowman Christmas wreath made for a craft fair and below is some personalised Christmas bunting.

Roberta brought in a quilt she made for the spare room using her new sewing machine. I love blue!

 Roberta also had time to make some Twiddlemuffs for our Dementia charity and a cowl scarf for herself. Busy woman!

Janice created another Twiddlemuff and tested her new sewing machine by making 11 Beatson bags. I'm beginning to think that she is running a sweat shop at home!

Stephanie also had time to sew 4 Beatson bags  this week. Those giant flowers are great.

 Lisa has been working on a granny shrug for the girls. It is actually a giant granny
 square that has been cunningly folded and joined to create a shrug. Little Bella is not so little any more and Lisa made this little dress to showcase her yarn at Yarndale. Apparently, having Bella act as a model at Yarndale was a big hit with the customers.

Fiona O has been experimenting with new ideas. This tea light holder looks spectacular!

Caroline was so chuffed when Fee made this little keepsake for Mr and Mrs Kelly's wedding date.

Jillian knitted a cozy jumper for Jemma using Rowan Fazed Tweed. Jillian only had a picture to remind herself of the quilt that she made as a baby gift. She even embroidered the baby's name on it.

Magda wanted some new table mats to brighten up her home so she made them herself. Stunning!

I hope you are collecting bits and pieces for Linda's Shoe Box charity.

Lisa is still collecting bigger sized hats & squares for blankets  for Yorkhill ( now based at the new Southern General).

Date for your diary - The Stitching, sewing and Hobbycrafts Show.....22nd -25th Oct.

Happy crafting!
