Sweet Pea Day

Our Sweet Pea ladies met here again today.

We talked about The Hottie Project.

Linda gave a demonstration on how to make the covers.  She shared some of the woollen blankets among the ladies and I gave out the pattern pieces so that they are set to go to for making covers as well.

Rochelle brought along this quilt she finished recently for her daughter.

A very bright and modern interpretation of traditional blocks.

A major achievement for Rochelle and very nicely finished too.

Andreena loves all things Christmassy and she likes making yo yos as well.

She has made this delightful wall hanging from yo yos.

All her own creation - very clever.

Andreena and Rochelle are attending a craft class about making a handbag.

They both have Pfaff sewing machines and the class is designed to help them learn to use their machines to a greater level.

These bright wavy lines are just a sneak peek of a great project and we look forward to revealing more of their creations at future meetings.

Good Morning Peggy, What a talented group of ladies the Sweet Pea Ladies are. The work you have shown us is so beautiful.
I popped over to read about the hot water bottle covers and I think it is a marvellous idea.
I remember, as a child, when there was no such thing as central heating, a hot water bottle was the only thing between being nice and warm in bed rather than being cold in bed. As I lived in Ripon, Yorkshire which was freezing in the winter.
We all like to be warm and cosy.
Best wishes
