Armed with my piece of calico bunting from the April meeting, I pondered on how to decorate this with a Diamond Jubilee theme. Then I spotted a bundle of fabric in a sewing shop in Leicester – just the thing – pieces of red, blue gingham and Union Jack flags. I spent a relaxing Saturday morning designing 2 flags, using patchwork as my theme, with buttons and loops to decorate. I proudly pegged them on the line at the May celebration evening, along with a couple of dozen others. The standard was very high and I was glad I had made an effort. Well done to the 2 winners.
