December meeting, 10 December

Hello crafters

Just a very short update on today’s Christmas gathering. It was an other very quiet day with only 19 people in our group. It is a very busy time of the year, so I hope that next year the numbers will increase again.

Our show and tell table was laden with beautiful items and we had two tables groaning under the heavy load of food.

Michelle and Helen returned from their trip to the USA and were showing of their thimble block small quilts and Helens vintage hand quilted beauties.

Pauline knitted a lovely cosy cardigan with some very interesting details and made a handful of jewellery, up cycled from old jeans.

Cathy made some bibs, lined with micro fibre cloth!!! Who would have thought ?and the reindeer we all fell in love with,was also made by this clever girl.

Nikki made a lovely quilt using old jeans as well, and the result was absolutely lovely. The pink and purple wreath was also a creation by Nikki.

Jenny (sorry if this name is incorrect) made a wreath of succulents, that would look lovely on my table, but unfortunately Nikki was the lucky recipient of this work of art.

I finished a small Christmas wall hanging and a larger one for my daughter, that was such a pleasure to make.

Besides all the crafting we do, I think we all make outstanding bakers and cooks. The food was sooooo good, and I think we all had a lovely time sharing all these dishes, slices, biscuits etc.

That is it from me and I hope to see you all again in the New Year
