Showers of Makes for April

Josie finished her magnificent Kaffe Fassett fabric quilt...

We had a flood of fabulous cushions in for our tombola stall at our July show.

Two table runners

More handy tote bags

A set of nifty bags

Above a couple of carrier bag caddies and, below, Fun Stress Buster Crazy Dolls.... not for children!

Here's the tag with the full explanation of the dolls
Handy mini aprons holding pen and notebooks to hang in the kitchen or by the phone. 
The idea came (with thanks) to the ladies of Huyton Quilters at their recent exhibition I visited. I was kindly given permission to use their idea and in return they will use my Dammit Dolls.
Around the room at our meeting, busy fingers were making a variety of items.

Beautiful beaded and embroidered collar by Mo

Once again, well done to all group members, who are all working so hard. It's only just over 3 months to our exhibition and we need a good show to make it  a success.
