Getting Ready for the Festive Season

At this month’s Cutting Edge session a number of members were busy making a Christmas tree wall hanging ready to hang over the festive season. And whilst everyone was using the same pattern they were all looking very different.

Hillary had reshaped hers from a long rectangle to a square which looked very effective.

Sandra had used green silk and was at the stage of adding her gold diamante which she discovered was quite challenging – and frustating at times – but she persevered and it looks stunning

Chris was busy sewing down the farbric swirls on her tree ….

Lesley was a little frustrated that her bondaweb wouldn’t adhere to her fabric – but kept smiling!

By the end of the day there were a few completed trees – fabulous

And, whilst Dilys wasn’t able to join us today she was busy at home completing her tree!

We wish Dilys a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her at the next meeting

Whilst some were busy ‘doing trees’ others were busy sewing and catching up on the gossip

And, as usual there were some wonderful pieces of work to share at show and tell

Chris had made some fun cushions for grand children using fabric that she had painted at Dyeing to Paint. It was great to see the hand painted fabric being used.

Corinne shared a beautiful embroidered wreath that she had completed

Helen had been to France on a Sheena Norquay course and showed the pieces that she had made there

And Hilary showed everyone a little angel that she had made.

We were pleased to welcome Marie Austin as a new member of the group. Marie was busy making a quilt for her sister.

As ever, a productive day and we look forward to seeing more of the Christmas wallhangings completed in the weeks to come.

P.S Hillary has finished her tree – it looks amazing!
