Hi happy crafters
Yesterday, Monday 10 August we returned to our lovely crafters home in Judbury Hall. There were 14 of us, and it was so nice to catch up with everyone.
The show and tell table was full to overflowing and I don’t think the COVID isolation had a negative effect on the crafting population. Michelle Vince hand made a tiny teddy, that now goes by the name of Corona, and a quilt that was named her Happy Corona quilt. Then she was working flat out on her long arm quilter, to finish a lot of quilts that had been pieced by her friends, one of them was mine, so no lazing about here.
Glenys has been very busy spinning and dying and showed us some beautiful Opal yarn, a feast for the eyes!!
Valeri had some beautiful scarves to show, works of art both of them, and 1200 grams of alpaca yarn, that will find its way into a woven blanket. Then there were some heavy duty socks, knitted in one piece and some repurposed undarnable socks, being made in small, colourful bags.
Win made some lovely soft hand towels and is improving her skills month by month.
Julie had a beautiful pair of long fingerless gloves, embellished with beads. Her first try of this pattern,mans they turned out perfect. She also had a baby blanket and a small bath mat this time, so she has been busy.
I am pretty much busy everyday with quilting and like the mini quilts the most. Then there have been lots of baby quilts, there is a baby explosion in our family, and I have dug through my stash and made an other 4 quilt tops, that now have to be quilted!!!
We had a new crafter joining us, Kerri Jacobson, who is new to the valley and who is a quilter. Everyone made her feel welcome, so we hope to see more of her in the future.
Please enjoy the pictures and happy crafting. See you in September Xoxo
