I made gonk babies recently with the homeless sewing group at the day centre, the Salvation Army Stitchers (or SAS as I like to call them). They are made from lovely soft fleece, which one of my friends from Seven Sisters Quilt Group gave me, and they are stuffed with rice. They feel really squidgy. They are the offspring of the gonks I made before!
We have got in to a routine now at our wednesday afternoon sewing sessions, we alternate one week making a block for the quilts we are all making and one week making a project which the clients can take away at the end of the session. I have been using my gargantuan stash of fabric and craft materials, it’s good to see it being used!
