Rosemary and Miriam who made these lovely articles below.

This is another wonderful quilt by Miriam and below a closer look.

Rosemary is making a bag to carry her things to the quilting class.

Here is more of Rosemary's work. Some lucky friend is having a birthday and she is making her a zipped bag.

Gwyneth has also been very busy.

This is a Banner Gwyneth is making for her local church.

Gwyneth is also making a book cover with this piece of Crazy Quilting.

Below is another work of art by Sue.

Double Birthday

I'm not going to write a lot this evening as it's my birthday today. Not only was it my birthday, it was also my friend Sue's birthday. I had every intention of asking someone to take photos of us both together and the birthday cakes we both bought, but I was enjoying myself so much, I completely forgot. What a pity.

Joan and Trish went on a course to Plas Tan y Bwlch last weekend and this is some of the work done by Joan.

Gaynor is the one who always manages to get some work done at the meeting and as usual, here she is stitching.

Some people can be so awkward! No chance of taking a photo of our Janine today.

This is a collage that Miriam is making. Watch this space. I think this will be special.

Hurray. Joan has bought an Embellisher.
A week today she paid me a little visit and had a go on my Embellisher, she took to it immediately and decided there and then that she needed one. this is her first project on her new machine, a needle-case. very nice too Joan.

This afternoon Janine showed us all how she dyes her fabrics and then we all dyed our own. We dyed in bags and then took them home to cure until tomorrow when we can wash them to see how they have turned out.

I wonder what they are studying?

Sue is enjoying herself.

Here is Gaynor concentrating.

Joan is enjoying herself.

Rosemary and Janine are still making important decisions here.

This is Mary's last meeting for a while, she and her husband are going to teach at a school in a poor district in India. Look after yourself Mary and don't stay away too long.
