... Quilt group had their first meeting of 2018 It was the presentation of the cheque for all the fundraising we did last year. The charity last year was the Christie Hospital .. (world famous cancer centre).. that we are fortunate to have in our area x
.. it has been a crazy time and resulted in the group raising FOUR THOUSAND POUNDS !!! When you consider the group has 43 members.... !! YES we had help .. but that is a fabulous achievement xx This year is a year off from fund raising to give every-one a chance to breath xx
OH! There was cake as well..
.. of course !! lol xx
It was great to see everyone and to have an outing with a group x Congleton Quilt group also started up this last week .. but its a loner journey and a bigger group .. so I gave it a miss .. will go next time x HOWEVER I did not get away with it ....
..they sent me fabric and pattern to make 2 blocks for a raffle quilt!! lol x They ALSO sent me a card to cheer on the recovery..
.. that was lovely x Its the little things like that that lift the mood when you are feeling "fragile" xx ... well for me anyway xx
I have to get on and make the blocks now xx
I finished the shawl that was already partly done...
.. I am glad I did .There was some muscle loss in my arm and the tension was definatly affected. It came out looser and bigger than the last one... it evened out with blocking OK.... so now I am going to start the one with the January club wool and pattern....
I have some sewing to do for the next meeting at Sandbach ... but cannot show it until AFTER the meeting x ... good job the physioTERRORISTS have given me exercises to get me going xx
Hope it has been a good week for every one of you x
