Through October the class have been working on the fabric bears and I think everybody has finally managed to put theirs together!!!
We have also covered Cathedral Window, which is really more ironing than sewing. A number of bags are being made.
The final week before the half term was all about Mug rugs, bigger than a coaster but not as big as a table mat. They are designed to have space for your favourite mug and a biscuit or cupcake and look really pretty and special. They are meant to make your coffee or tea break special, a time to sit and enjoy!!!
I have made a number of them – of course one with a tortoise on for me and an owl one for Laura. I had a couple of Christmas themed log cabin squares and I have added to them to make a couple of Christmas mug rugs – space for your mug and a mince pie!!!!
Just finished half term week off and we had a few days out, one of which was Anglesey Abbey and Gardens. Tony took some lovely photos of the trees and gardens and I hope to create some lovely landscape postcards and possibly may do some a bit bigger to really get the feel of the place.
