Marilyn is her finished Simplicity 2588 in Amy Butler fabric
(quite lovely, I'm sure you'll agree)
And so, back to our Jubilee celebrations. RK and Marilyn decided to lay on a festive spread, courtesy of Lewisham Council. As the group will soon be disbanding (queue violins) it seemed the right moment to push the boat out and have a little party. smile
Sandwiches, crisps, grapes, cakes, biscuits, homemade scones, teacakes, sausage rolls and lashings of Schloer were munched and crunched over the session.

In other news, Val finished Simplicity 2322 by hand in a lovely blue butterfly fabric she bought in Lewisham for only £2. The lady on the market stall outside Rolls & Rems clearly has some hidden treasure buried on her stall so be sure you check it out!

Del finished New Look 6968 in African fabric and it fit her like a glove! An easy pattern to make she said she is definitely making another. Val copied the pattern and will be making her dress soon and Liz will be cutting it out next week (shh, don't tell the New Look company), so you'll be seeing this dress a good few times before we close.

It was a busy day at the group but lovely as always. Liz came in for a few hours to cut the lining on a maxi dress, Del cut out a New Look prom dress in African material, whilst patchwork and crochet were being done in between much eating and laughter! Although we will be ending in a few weeks time, we were happy to come together, it was a wonderful day to toast the Queen. Gaw'd Bless you Ma'am.
HAPPY DIAMOND JUBILEE EVERYONE!
