First Makes of 2016 and Poppy Project

Debbie is a fairly new member and at our first meeting of the New Year she brought along this fabulous giant sized handy bag. 
A lovely make to start the year!
Caroline, another of our newer members, had been busy crocheting a couple of lovely blankets over the holidays, as special gifts, and was so pleased to show them finished. She has almost finished a log cabin patchwork cushion which we hope to see next meeting.

Over Christmas I heard an appeal on BBC Radio Merseyside requesting people to make poppies towards and installation within St George's Hall, which will follow after the Weeping Windows move on.
The appeal was at short notice, as everyone is so busy over the holidays, and the closing date was 9th January, but nonetheless, the ladies of our quiltiing group rose to the challenge and managed to make a small collection.
Sadly when I delivered them, with only one day to go, only around 20 others had been handed in towards the project.
Our collection included felt poppies, silk, machine and hand embroidery and even some beading. 
Thanks so much to everyone who participated and now we'll wait to see just what comes of them.

Only one more week left to see them in Liverpool as they will then be moved to another city after 17th January.
