Happy New Year to all you crafty people out there! - Hope you have enjoyed the holiday you hoped for! I am feeling a bit weary of all the festivities - so much food!! - but it has been a lot of fun.
I have been doing quite a bit of sewing in the quieter moments - but no photos to show. Lindsay finished the lovely wreath she started at Pitch and Stitch:
Our main Christmas present was the lovely window Mark Brock made for us which is now in our porch - so much work, he completely dismantled the old window from Jonathan's Grandfather Pratt's Butchers shop in Hungerford that had sat in the barn for more than 20 years, and re-made it. The top and bottom 'filler' sections (quilters know all about fillers) he made from the red glass that made up the original border, and the green and purple glass he chose to represent the Garston Gallopers - so the old has been united with the new!
we are so pleased with it. If you want to see more about what he did to make it, take a look at his website - http://www.brocksdown.co.uk/ and if you have leaded windows in need of repair - you know where to go!
