Christmas Celebrations 2014

We decorated a tree with white Christmas Roses at St Oswald's Church in Ashbourne as part of the Christmas celebrations and to represent the branch.

St Oswald's church with its impressive spire.

Although we all started with the same basic pieces a great variety of beautiful flowers were decorated.  The white background unified the display.

Our December meeting
Our in house meeting in December always includes an activity followed by a sumptuous feast brought by members.

The winning design was a cross between the Remembrance poppies and Christmas roses.

We used the same template for the flowers as the red poppies for the national day of stitch activity in the library.

Jan organised a quiz for us

The activity was to decorate a napkin ring.

Finished napkin rings.  We select our favourites by placing coins and the one with most coins is the winner.  The money goes to a local charity.
