There’s No Rest For The Wicked!

Never bored Cutting Edge members excelled themselves today.

As well as having a Japanese Folded Patchwork workshop running in the little room

there was all sorts of things going on in the main hall.

We heard barely a peep from Pat who was totally engrossed in drawing up a design on her wholecloth quilt.

Hilary taught Hillary how to make a tree out of a magazine.

And them went on to demonstrate paper printing so that people could make their own Christmas wrapping paper.

It wasn’t long before people were getting hooked!

There was huge interest in the Sissix machines as well!

In the midst of all this there was a considerable number of pieces of work that members shared with others during morning prayers.

Liz and Chris had recently been to an Ann Washington workshop in Llantrisant.

Liz showed a sea landscape and a felt fairy that she had made.

Chris had also done a landscape..

and showed a piece of work that she had started in last week’s Dyeing to Paint group. It is coming along nicely!

Isobelle had also printed some fabric last week to back the reverse of a loose fabric collage image that she created last year.

Hillary, inspired by the fabric landscape that Hilary showed last month, created her own, which is delightful.

Corinne has been on a mission since the last UFO day. She has completed an Advent calendar….

Glynis has been making heart wreaths and very nice they are too!!!

Helen had made more bit bags – which are going like hot cakes! She reckons that she has probably made 20 now and still there are calls for more…..

Linda had completed this beautiful cross stitch that had been left unfinished. There are plans to frame it and raffle it in the future.

And, Sylvana showed everyone her beautiful hen quilt.

There’s never a dull moment at Cutting Edge. But, next month there is time for a breather whilst we enjoy our Christmas lunch!

Happy sewing and crafting folks!
