Standing tall project unveiling at the Grand Theare Dec2017

Elise and I as the New and Used Chairs of Wolverhampton Branch attended the unveiling of the Giant at the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton. We were part of 20+community groups who contributed pieces . It looks amazing in real life and will be up for the duration of the Panto.
Try and get to see it if you can.

Number one photo needs a caption I have suggested a couple although we might be rehearsing for Bohemnian Rhapsody!

'Dont fancy yours' or 'we've been photo bombed'

christmas workshop 2017

On Saturday Louise led a Christmas workshop where we made knitted, crocheted and felted Christmas trees that lit up . A great day was had by all.
Getting ready for the day

Some of us knitted our trees


Some did it 'Just Like that"

some just dreamt about doing it!

some just captivated everyone with their methods!

we had a very colourful sales table

Louise showed us all how to attach our lights

Some used felt

And some just did their own thing

Time to embellish

And time to stuff

Some tried new skills like tatting!

Some did some brilliant drawings of what was going on

And then we showed off our final designs

Our buffet lunch was glorious

And the showing off carries on

A cactus tree!!

this one had 2 sides!

And this one had 2 trees a virtual  forest!

A lovely day was had by all thanks to Louise who facilitated the activity. And a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New year to you all.
