Christmas in July

We had a lovely day on Saturday sitting in the hall stitching and chatting and the meal at The Olive Tree was delicious too!  But the best part, of course, was the Elves' challenge.  Last Christmas Beryl and Sharon handed out our little packages containing fabric, ribbon and bells and told us we must use them somehow to create a Christmas project to show at the Christmas in July.  We all had to vote for our favourite entry and there were prizes for first, second and third places.  As you will see it was really difficult voting for just one!  If you want to see more detail click on each photo and it will enlarge.

In first place...

Joy's owls!  Aren't they adorable?  Each owl is different and they have the cutest facial expressions!

In second place...

Glo's carousel house!  There were four rooms altogether and you could spin it around to view each room.  Glo even had working lights!

In third place...

Sandra's Christmas Advent fairy.  All her pockets held small chocolate bars.  Yum!  (Thanks for the photo Judy!)

A feast of other entries...

The elves did a brilliant job and all the completed challenges were fantastic.  Who will be next year's elves I wonder?  It could be YOU!
