Back to Needlework

It is always nice to be back at Needlework after the break for school holidays ... and lovely to catch up with what all the ladies have been stitching in their two weeks away from Needlework .... Chris has made some lovely patchwork Christmas placemats ....



And still on the Christmas theme .... Shirley W. has been playing around with "chicken scratching" and has made a couple of cute Christmas bags ....


Diana has completed this amazing quilt which was put together by her friend Ilma ...


Another of Shirley W's lovely purses .... with chicken scratching and a cute little blackwork zipper pull !


Lots of cushions surfaced this morning .... Shirley F has made three lovely cushions for special men in her lives .... 



This one is for a cricket fanatic !


And Margaret has completed two bright and colourful cushions with roosters ....



And hens and chicks ....


Joyce has finished off her version of my sewing basket ...


A variation on the side ....


And this has been a long time in the making for Lyn ... but she has finished off this beautiful tablecloth which was started by one of our members who passed away a few years ago ...  Diane ....


Such a labor of love Lyn ... and Diane would have been especially thrilled to see this gorgeous piece finished .... and that just about sums up the very essence of our Needlework group ....
