Log cabin blocks
The small Quilting groups 1 and 2 make for a friendly, informal atmosphere where everyone can learn and support each other with their varying projects. As the groups have grown in confidence members are happy to work on their own inspired projects. No one ever seems to be short of ideas to keep their hands busy.
Quilting group member Elizabeth Shaw says: “During lockdown I have been making log cabin blocks (photo above) which will eventually become a quilt. I have been using fabric left over from previous quilts I have made. As you can see there is a lot of purple which is left over from the bed runner I made for my sister.”
Deanne Rhodes, too, has been busy quilting during the coronavirus lockdown and produced these colourful Christmassy decorations to give to her family.
Myths & Stories
Tales from long ago
All cultures have had their own myths and legends for centuries in order to explain life and death. All have different Creation Myths. We had Adam and Eve until science proved otherwise. How could one explain thunder and lightning other than that it was sent from the gods in anger? Or how could you explain night’s darkness if you did not know that the earth rotates around the sun?
We discuss legendary stories from all around the world, some ancient and others much more recent. We are a small, friendly group who meet in Pixham. If you are interested in joining us please ring Jill Burberry (01306 880653).
Pick up the pieces
We have over 150 jigsaws for you to choose from. Most are 1,000 pieces but we also have lots of smaller jigsaws. The subjects range from country scenes and animals to historical subjects and comical pictures.
The exchange is in Brockham in a room at the back of my garage so there is no need to come into my house. Hand sanitiser is provided and all jigsaws are quarantined for a week when returned. If you are interested please ring me on 01737 842516.
Our members include many talented artists, writers and photographers whose work can be enjoyed on this site.
