Run up to Christmas

As usual Cutting Edge was a hive of activity today with members busy sewing and crafting ready for Christmas. And, after morning prayers there were some lovely pieces of work that members were eager to show.

Fran brought a quilt that she has recently completed

It was also good to know that when CE members go away they are thinking about us. Lesley Halliwell has gone to visit relatives in New Zealand and emailed earlier today to let us know that she was thinking about us. She told us that she had been to a quilt exhibtion which seemed to be deserted!

And she sent a photo of a beautiful war quilt that she came across and seemed to have won a prize – don’t worry folks we aren’t awarding rosettes for our quilts unless someone wants to offer to make some!
