We had our first and hopefully LAST snowfall of this winter..
.. it came overnight and was gone by 10.am ish xx Thank goodness .. I'm NOT a fan xx lol x
The 2 quilting groups I belong to have re-started, Congleton Tuesday and Sandbach Thursday of this last week. It was lovely to catch up and share the Christmas and New Year stories with all the ladies xx
At Sandbach our charity for 2017 is the Christie Hospital (www.christie.nhs.uk ) .. one of the ways we are going to support them this year is by making bags ....to hold drainage bags ... they need to have concealed or French seams so that there are no ragged edges for "bugs etc. " to collect in!!
I am going to (hopefully !!) make one per week ...first one is made..
....now all I have to do is keep up xx I am DETERMINED that I will use up stash this year and this will be a good way to work towards this x
I have a new shawl ..
....again a long skinny ones to wrap around multiple times xx I have had this gradient wool for a while ... again using up stash x LOVE the way it knit up .
