Advent Elf

Sandra has sent me this picture of the Advent Elf we will be making at the workshop on Wednesday 21st November - the workshop is now fully booked, but  the the pattern will also be available on the Advent Calender day on saturday 24th November.

I think she's great fun - and there is also a boy version.

Shepherd's Delight!

I see it's over a month since I last wrote - time flies.  The workshop has been very busy, with the new workshops up and running and Pitch and stitch every Tuesday - it's always so interesting to see all the different things people are doing.  My Kneeler was blessed at the Harvest Festival service at church ( a friend said afterwards, 'Did we really pray for five minutes for a cushion...?) and I have finally finished the last of Pauline's quilts.  Using all the fabric left over from the first quilt, I made it with Japanese Patches - it seemed to take forever but the joy of the patches is that you then don't have to worry about quilting it - you did it as you went along:

The front

The back!
I copied an idea I got from the NEC, which was to reverse the outer border which I think makes it look more 'finished'.  The centre is the Mariner's Compass which I started at one of our summer workshops.

Now that's out of the way I can start finishing some other projects.  Today I went back to a brilliant bag I started in May... should be finished soon.

At least it looks like it may stop raining for a while - this evening produced a spectacular sunset:

I know at least one shepherd who was delighted!
