Knitting Club

The yarns for the sweater were in lovely colours, she was the best in the knitting club. People wondered how nimble her hands were for a 98 year old.

The majority of the knitting club consisted of her family whom she had taught. They had made sweaters for practically everyone in the village and guess what, they were all in similar colours.

A Dress for Summer

I used to make a point of sewing a dress each summer.  It was something I enjoyed doing and this was many many years ago.  I learnt to sewq by helping my Mum and did sewing lessons at school and at a Singer Sewing Club.  One thing I struggled with is putting on the zip.  However there was a great satisfaction when I achieved it.  Then I got crafty and chose patterns that didn’t need a zip!
