Afternoon Delights

After our December meeting we went home with lavender bag hearts, as demonstrated by Julie, or a felt tree decoration,thanks to Joyce's instruction.

We meet again in January on Thursdays 13th and 27th at 2 p.m. in the Village Hall.  On the thirteenth there will be another opportunity for people to improve their smocking skills courtesy of Barbara and on the twentyseventh Ann will show people how to make 3-D cards.  For the cards you will need to take with you a pair of small sharp scissors and some paper printed with a repeated symbol, e.g. a sheet of wrapping paper, or you could print out the same symbol several times using a computer, perhaps using something from the Wingdings font.  You will need six to eight of these shapes and they need to be large enough to cut out accurately.

If you don't fancy either of these then please come along anyway and bring your knitting, cross-stitch or whatever.  Or even just come along for a cup of tea and a natter.

Thank you to all the ladies who have knitted squares to make a knee blanket.  We have now sent off our first blanket to Selly Oak Hospital for the young disabled soldiers who have been patients there.  A second blanket is in production.

Thank you for all your work so far.
