139 FINISHED Linus Quilts.That is what the lovely Joan (the Linus Lady) collected today. I think you can be rightly proud of yourselves ladies. They were sorted, counted and re-counted just to be sure. (And we still have at least 10 quilt tops in the store cupboard that just need finishing)

Many tanks go to Jayne Smith of Makower UK who kindly sent some samples (loads actually) for us to use in these quilts.
***********************Carol brought a collection of pieces that she has made for a Wedding Anniversary gift for a friend.
There was a cushion, some table mats, coasters and a cute bread basket. Lucky Friends!

Ellen had finished her lovely neutral crazy cushion, compete with gold tassels. A lovely piece of work. Well done Ellen
|simple palette but so effective|
|putting the world to rights?|

NUMBERS ARE LIMITED
Don't forget, next Monday (6th May) is a Bank Holiday, so
On our next all day Monday (20th May) we will be having our
PIN CUSHION PARTY
Have you had your invite??
All are welcome, Bring a bag of your lovely fabrics and some stuffing and a notebook. You can make any of the pin cushions that we have a pattern for. (We will not have copies of the patterns for everyone, so you will need to make your own notes).
If you have an old china tea cup or little bowl, you could put a pin cushion in that!
And here are some ideas that I have taken from this lovely blog where they posted a pincushion every Friday for a year! Loads of choice there then!
As its a Party, we will also be having a
BRING AND SHARE LUNCH
Don't be Late!!
