Last Saturday was our December meeting at Scunthorpe Embroiderers’ Guild and as well as Stitch Club, lovely Christmassy treats, our usual mega raffle and a workshop with our own Liz on making dream-catcher style Christmas tree ornaments, it was the grand unveiling of the Christmas Consequences which Helen set us at the AGM back in September. The scope and imagination of what everyone involved had produced in response to a handful of words was truly amazing.
Helen judged the winner, but members also voted by putting coins (one coin, one vote, with the value of the coin being irrelevant) into a saucer by the side of each piece of work. All the coins go into our funds.
Just a taster of the work on show and apologies if I’ve missed anybody’s out! Helen’s choice was Janet’s beautiful mistletoe headband at the back of this first photo.
The runner up Member’s Choice was this delightful partridge in a pear tree by one of out newest members – sorry, can’t remember her name. :os
Lynda’s mince pie crusts actually lift off to reveal ‘mincemeat’ (chocolate covered raisins).
The Member’s Choice winner was Sandra’s witty picture.
Looking back at the photos, there is at least one person’s I’ve missed – my own! Well done, Alex! Not that it matters as I’ll blog about my ‘consequence’ in a bit more detail later.
