Happy New Year everyone!

The Crafty Crew enjoyed a festive show and tell session to round up our crafting year. It was a great evening sharing our various creations amongst friends. Thanks to Diane for hosting and to the Pewsham Belles committee for donating to our drinks and nibbles.

We are all feeling inspired and have lots of ideas for future makes. Look out for notebook making, octopuses, punch needlework, block printing, sock snowmen a...

Michelle used the ugly rindy bits from last week's taste test Stilton to make some Broccoli and Stilton soup. It's a great way of using up those bits of the cheese which aren't that good to eat off the cheeseboard,  or indeed in a taste test.

Thursday's left over vegetables (mange tout, carrots, celery and pepper sticks) from the dips selection also featured alongside 2 roughly chopped onions, 1 cubed spud, 1 head of broccoli...

Being moved out of our normal home due to the election didn’t stop the Christmas Party, nor some sneaky extra voting! 🎄🎅🏼 We had homemade non alcoholic mulled ‘wine’ using Caroline's not-so-secret-now recipe, a festive food tasting session - how different our palates are, a glorious buffet and a mega Christmas raffle.

Here are the results of the Festive Taste Test for further perusal, especially if you couldn't make l...

With no book to read this month the Book and Supper Clubs joined forces for a Christmas gathering. We headed off to a local Indian Restaurant all armed with a wrapped pre-loved book for a lucky dip Secret Santa.

Would you believe that with all the books in the world, two copies of Alice Walker's, The Colour Purple were gifted. There were only 10 of us there and the book hasn't ever been nominated for the next read!! 
 

The Our Town group enjoyed an evening of night time photography and saw Chippenham in a new light! The Christmas lights were a-twinkle and the rain had just stopped, leaving the streets full of interesting reflections and lights to capture with our phones and cameras.

Michelle had plenty of hints and tips to share for photography at this time of day with just a camera or phone. It means anyone can have a play before deciding...

Our first ever mention in WI Life and it's a major splash! When their call went out on the UWI Facebook Group for stories about inspiring women we knew they HAD to feature Pauline. Her amazing world record achievement this year is a story that's hard to beat.

We've always thought Pewsham Belles has a wonderful membership of inspiring women and it's great WI Life thinks so too. Well done Pauline and here's to further success f...

The final tally from October's cakes and raffle came to £90.10 after Kim took her Bakewell leftovers into work. We've now had a lovely email from Alan Lake at the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust, who Michelle met at the Neeld earlier this year. This inspired her to nominate the Trust as our local charity and you'll see in Alan's thank you there's some good news about the leak at Pewsham Locks...

"I understand from the WBCT head off...

We all love to shop! And if you shop online, then there's an easy way you can help Pewsham Belles WI raise some cash at no extra cost to you.

The easyfundraising website has over 3,000 online stores on its books who are willing to donate commission if you shop via them instead of directly. Pewsham Belles has registered as a 'Cause' on there (we can because our WI is a charity), which means we can get that cash if you register...
