It Feels so Good to Complete a Project

Barb's quilt to is almost finished and she is happy with the result. The technique used to create this beautiful scene is called Interpolated technique. She said the fabric has a 24 inch repeat and was found at a Walmart. If you look carefully, it appears that the fish are moving, a visual effect created by this technique.

If you'd like to read more about the Interpolated technique, check out this blog.

Some projects are quick, some like Julie's cross stitch for her friend Jan can take a couple of years. She started in 2007 and it's finally been completed. She used swarovsky heart crystals to embellish this cross stitch creation. Gold thread was also used to outline parts of the design.

Jacky, a first time attendee has a passion for charity and plans to use yarn left over from other projects to make blankets for dogs. She will be donating her crochet blankets to the Animal Rescue Mission.

Phyllis has been crocheting market/book bags which will be sold at the upcoming book sale at the Mint Hill Library. The book sale is scheduled for May 16 starting at 10:00 a.m. Shelia shared some patterns with the ladies which are very quick to make.

This is the bottom of Julie's knitted bag.

Rita is donating to the book sale her very own bag creation which she named Supermarket Commando Bag. It is quite large, sturdy and padded.
Iola continues to have fun making dishcloths and I especially like the lady bug cloth.
