October 2013


September saw the start of a new term  and the run up to Christmas!!!


The theme for this term is gifts, so we started the first week with making a strawberry that can be a pincushion or can be scented and used in drawers or wardrobes or inside smelly shoes. Not use sure of the husbands will want strawberry scented work boots!!!


A couple of scented strawberries put into a jam jar with a pretty fabric circle on the top and tied with a ribbon makes a lovely gift.


For the other couple of weeks we have been working with Pinwheel Magic template, great for making a quilt, bedrunner or tablerunner, a number of Christmas fabric table runners being made. To help with the Pinwheels we have done some videos, have a look at them in the video section!!!


Another great gift is the fabric bear that we have started and are slowly making.


Still to come over the term, is a bag, box, pincushion and Christmas decoration all using Cathedral Window. And pot holders and oven gloves, mug rug (basically a fancy bigger coaster!!!) and a mug hug. Great for yourself or as Christmas presents!!!!
