Our group has donated 70 syringe driver bags for the Beatson so far. Stephanie, Janice and I took along some bags to The Village Patchers and the ladies there were so impressed that they donated some fabric and made some bags. Carole Judge, from the Village Patchers, then attended the Glasgow Gathering of Quilters and told them about our activities and more bags were donated. Fran and Elaine were at the Motherwell W.I. and spread the news. Everyone has been touched by cancer at some point in their lives and many kind people want to help in some small way. One of the ladies from the Glasgow Gathering made 16 bags and you can see a selection of them in our first picture.
Stephanie was asked by a friend if she would dress her old childhood dolls for her. Needless to say, Stephanie was in her element, making, creating and adapting patterns to fit each doll. Their owner will be delighted with this fashion show! Stephanie also had time to complete her Cathedral window wall hanging which had been a project from the Village Patchers.
I had time to make two cushion covers. The first has applique butterflies for a toddler who loves butterflies. The second cushion cover might be a Christmas present if I can part with it.
Audrey completed the Spice of Life Blanket recently. This pattern was created in conjunction with the Black Sheep Wool Company and Cherry Hart. I just love those colours! It has been worked in Stylecraft yarn.
Roberta has completed a baby quilt and admitted it was a challenge. You can guarantee this will not be the last quilt she makes because she made such a good job of it. I always love Roberta's pram blankets. They have style!
In her spare time Roberta worked on some squares to be made into blankets for the older kids at Yorkhill undergoing treatment.
Morag has been experimenting with a new stitch. This is a little pram cover worked in Popcorn stitch. Looks fab!
Aimee has been coming along to the group for a couple of months. She came along with her Gran Morag and Aunt Gillian. Aimee wanted to learn to crochet and has produced a pompom blanket that has been worked on a loom and a pram cover worked in Popcorn stitch. A big thanks to Morag and Roberta who taught her to crochet.
