I am not quite sure where we are up to, but at the last all day Monday we were continuing with the scrappy theme. Collapsible Thread Catchers were the most popular item being made with a couple of "Fishy" bottle holders being tackled.
Oh! And Alison was making a rather elegant beaded bell that should have taken an hour or so but took all day! She discovered belatedly that the beads that she was threading onto one end were dropping off the other! Bit like the forth Bridge?

Here we have a "fish" being sewn
Lynda however decided to put the time to good use and cut all of her odds and end of white and cream into squares (5", 3 1/2" and 2 1/2 ") ready to us as a pieced background in a future project.
|all neat and tidy|
Try as I might, I couldn't fathom WHY Barbara would spend so much time knitting nursery rhyme characters and bags for them to go in! She told me they were for a Grand Daughter who teaches pre school and they were for the children to choose the rhyme and create the story.
|we all know this one!|
Meanwhile our World War 1 creations have been doing the rounds
First at Finedon Flower Festival
Thank you all who have let me trawl these items round the county. Those items that are being donated for sale will be passed to local British Legion this week, for them to raise funds for the legion
I have missed today's group meeting ( playing with baby O ) and I am not sure if anyone else has taken photos.
Exciting things are planned for next year, so keep an eye out for an updates Diary page
