My bunting

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.

Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Resolutions night was a huge success on Wednesday 23 May 2012.   After giving unanimous support to the resolution at the fothcoming National WI AGM, members were entertained by a delightful array of songs performed in the Congreational Church by Great Bowden Choice: ‘You’ll never walk alone’ to the leader’s own choice of ‘Why I love music’.

Members then tested their knowledge on all things Royal in a quiz.  Questions, Guess Who and a fun round of Royal Pictionary, proving how resourceful members can be when drawing stick people!  The evening was rounded off by a Dutch supper, with a strong Jubilee theme.

Metres of red, white and blue bunting decorated the hall. Members displayed their own individually decorated bunting, judged by visitors from Stoke Golding WI.
