Needlework Ladies

Such a variety of projects being worked on at Needlework at the moment ..... Kereen has crocheted this gorgeous fish knee rug .... whilst on a cruise .... so a very appropriate project to work on ....


A close up view of the design ... it looks great and such wonderful colours too !


Quite a few years ago our Needlework ladies knitted lots of penguin jumpers for baby penguins suffering as a result of oil slicks etc ... and the call is out again from the Phillip Island penguin community so Pauline is knitting some little penguin jumpers .... very cute ....


Jenny has made a couple of lovely cushions .... this chenille design is very effective ...


And she has used Lynette Andersons new Quilters Garden fabric range of houses to appliqué on this panel for another cushion ...


Betty started this project when she was 17 and she is now 83 so I think this might almost take the record for the longest UFO (unfinished object) or PHD (project half done) .... It is a gorgeous table cloth with these ladies and gardens in each corner ... amazing work and still going strong and looking fantastic after 66 years !


We made these little scissor fobs a few years ago and Margaret has attached the most gorgeous pair of scissors with a red and white design on them ...


And such a lovely display of flowers greeting us this morning in the hall .... locally grown Proteas in various stages of bloom ... simply stunning ....
