every second Monday we have our group here in Kilkivan & every other Monday over in Goomeri. i came back to it late last year, thought seeing as i sit & knit on Monday anyways why not do it in company? (i knit everyday actually)
thought you might all enjoy some of what the ladies are making, they tend to swap their crafts out from week to week, & i thought i had too many projects going!
first up the dazzling butterfly quilt, my camera phone isn't doing the colours justice here, it's actually quite bright, she has matched the butterflies to the patchwork pieces around the borders.
next is some colourful Candle wicking
sorry, it was hard to get a good photo of this, it is to be another quilt
this is a cushion cover for a friend & it's in cross stitch
another lady was doing some very cute animal embroideries, think this is a quilt too.
we have a Pumpkin festival coming up in May & there's a small competition going with a pumpkin scene of course!
here is another using up scraps of material & then just doing many running stitches in all directions, says it's very soothing.
these are teeny, tiny hexagons, that's a pair of applique` scissors i left there so you could see the size, she is making these into flower blocks then those into a queen size quilt!
this last one is a very colourful Bavarian blanket, a few of the ladies make them & donate them to elderly nursing homes in the area.
hope you enjoyed the pictures of one of my days out, i myself am knitting a sweater & will post it up when i have a fair bit more done.
do you go to a group? for a day out to socialize, to learn a new skill?
we finally got a bit of rain last night, need a lot more yet
thanx for visiting
