They always have a sales table of smallish items that the ladies have made and donated for sale, with the funds from the weekend going to a local charity. This week I have made four knitting bags
|great to hang over your arm and keeps the yarn from rolling around the floor|
A couple more peg bags and then I think I am done!!
Which is a good job because Darling Daughter "popped round" and rummages through my box of tricks , hijacked my machine (whilst I did the cutting out )
and created this lovely baby quilt for a friend's new baby boy.
|all from that scrap box!!|
I did get to finish a quick throw quilt for Chilterns MS Centre
|splashes of dew - ooops!|
You may remember that back in June I visited Fibre East and purchased this lovely lace yarn.
|Needs winding from the skein|
|drop the yarn on the umbrella|
|wind the winder|
|with a bit of sparkle|
Road Trip Shawls using 4ply yarn and a 4mm hook, and think I may be ready to tackle the finer yarn on another scarf that I have purchased the pattern for. We shall see.
Last weekend saw us down south visiting the little darling and we spent Saturday afternoon walking around Belfairs Wood. I was a beautiful afternoon, though we had had a lot of rain the day before.
Little Miss LOVES her welly boots and had great fun walking through muddy puddles, though she had to be evacuated from this one as it did get to the top of her little boots!
|But we did it anyway!|
|Bit of face painting|
|lots of bouncy castles|
|Do they ever grow up!!|
Back to the sewing. We have been given the instructions for the September "Mini Mania Challenge" 1" strips, making (16) 3 1/2 or 4 1/2" blocks in Log Cabin or Courthouse steps.
After the Sales Table stint, my room was a bit of a mess, so a tidy up was needed before I thought about the Challenge.
Sorting the scrap box
|Binding and all with 20 days to go!!|
|great for storing your yarn|
Some of the ladies are making "bonding squares" for the local Special Care Baby Unit
|and a couple of little bonnets|
|Well done Ena!|
|these look cosy|
|that doubles as a stool|
When I got home, Darling Daughter was again sitting at my sewing machine (already rummaged through my Christmas Treasures) and is making a set of mug rugs for the festive season!!
I have managed to get this all written up, but "we" are now sorting fabrics for Christmas stockings and I need to keep my eye on what is being kidnapped!!
I will let you know!!!
