This month we were down one Quirky, but she has sent a picture of her latest project. CB bought some mini hot water bottles with a view to crocheting covers for them. The body of the cover was worked out easily, but the joining together was a bit more problematical. (See last post for first attempt). A bit of work proved much more satisfactory, and the latest cover is very pretty.

|HT Corner to corner blanket with edging 'done properly'|
HT liked the corner to corner blanket pattern that some of us had used, and decided to have a go herself. Last meeting, as she was coming to the end, we were discussing the edging. She was going to do something, not bothering too much about the corners, but had second thoughts and 'did the corners properly' so it is nice and flat. Rumour has it she may keep this for herself. To find tutorials and patterns just Google C2C or corner to corner crochet blanket.

|CD Fabric bowl|
Sewing projects were also being undertaken. CD was making a fabric bowl using an old pair of denim jeans as the stiffener. She is not sure about the edging on this one, but thought it worth trying instead of satin stitch for a change. Came out satisfactory, but pattern could do with a tweak when using old denim jeans as stiffener.

As usual, we talked and ate quite a lot. Too busy eating to take photos of the food which included - salted caramel and chocolate chip cookies with coffee for elevenses, minestrone soup and homemade bread with salted caramel torte and cream for lunch, salted caramel cake with afternoon tea. Lots of salted caramel all quite delicious.
Another lovely productive day with good friends!
