September Meeting

Saturday was our AGM which went quite well although not as many members as usual attended.  We had a very interesting talk 'Thread Therapy and Frustration' by Jonathan MacPherson of Barnyarns.  He also brought lots of threads and accessories for us to spend out money on!
We had our 'Rose Bowl' competition entries on display for Jonathan to judge and below is a photograph of those entries. The subject this year was flowers.

The winner was Moira Wood with her beautiful picture of buddleia done with applique and embellishing and here is a picture of Moira with the 'Eva Heselton Rose Bowl' which she gets to keep for one year.
We have also had some entries completed for the Guild Olympic postcards.  Only three so far but we have earmarked the November meeting as a finishing off day so hopefully there will be a few more by then.

It's the Bag Lady again!

I was so pleased with my poppy bag that I made after Kathleen Laurel Sage visited us that I have made another one.  This is for my great niece who will be 4 this week.  I have reduced the size of the bag and only used the smaller flower shape and added a couple of butterflies.  I have fastened the flowers on with small buttons instead of beads as I thought they would hold on better. You can buy the plastic at Dunelm if anyone is interested in making their own bags.
