Fairy Stories

We had a very busy workshop today - heads down, machines clattering (well, one was - Helen's sounded like someone was shaking a jar of safety pins but it did as it was told), scissors flying through fabric, and only half an hour for lunch because everyone wanted to get on, because......today was Elf Day!

When I was little one of my favourite fairy stories was The Elves and the Shoemaker.  Over the years, whenever homework, housework or tricky UFOs (unfinished objects) were praying on my mind,  a part of me would yearn for those elves to get to work while I had a snooze.  It's never happened, but today I got closer than I ever have - there were elves popping up all over the workshop!

And here is Elfspeth - all finished!
and another!

  1. Seeing all your ladies busy doing Xmas things is almost as good as doing Xmassy things with my classes for all those years.
