Sue, and Vicky invited us to
The Green Patch Volunteers Christmas lunch
where the most amazing feast was laid out for
all to enjoy!
Later we made paper plate Christmas Wreaths
enjoyed more fabulous food
Santa Nigel arrived to give out our lovely gifts
twice in one week!
What's in the bag?
Time to feast and be jolly!
Sue and the volunteers had made the polytunnel
a grotto fit for santas elves!
who were busy more wreaths
and Flush Me Not angels
there was a bit of pizza making
with healthy toppings
and just a bit of cheese!
Whilst waiting Sue had organised
fun and games.
Here are more presents - these we made for Vicky's group.
Jamie tucks into his hand made pizza.
Look - some very cute reindeer!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
So far The View from Here has been
fabulous, we've met and made , sewn and grown,
felt part of our local and wider communities.
We can't wait to see you again in the New Year!
Earlier on in the project we had an idea to
yarn bomb The Mollie!
Here she is in her autumn finery!
We also have one of the
Women's Cycling Tour of Britain

After The Green Patch Open Day our lovely Shelagh was so inspired by the Morsbags that were given away she decided to set up her own Grange Pod. Morsbags help us to use up materials that may be languishing in a cupboard and help to create shopping bags that are a joy to use and don't add to the problems created by environmentally harmful plastic bags.
Carole popped along to donate some material for the venture.
Here are some of Shelagh's first bags
made following the Morsbag pattern
You can watch a How To video here
What a great idea!
Later, at The Green Patch
we made peppermint creams
and our gift bag project continued!

We were delighted to join the lovely
and very creative Phiona Richards
for a session to learn how o make
some unique tree decorations
from sink plug traps, which also gave us time
to consider how to protect our water pipes.
Phiona taught us how to choose then thread
beads through the holes in the sink traps.
Here are some of the finished results.
Carole was on hand to assist and to
continue sewing our gift bags!
With Christmas fast approaching the group
have been busy making Advent Calendars
and using fabric stamps
to embellish gift bags for the group and other
members of The Green Patch community.
We chose words that represented the fun
and joy of the winter season.
Our plan is to sew all the fronts
to lovely patterned fabrics
and fill them with a selection
of small gifts and treats.
30 fronts down and 50 more to go !
Here are Jamie and Jacob
With their felt panels now mounted on
a felt mat to hang on their walls at home.
Nice work team!

One of the best parts of being part of a longer term project
and being based in a particular area is that we feel part of
both the local community and The Green Patch Community.
It was lovely to be invited to be part of their Open Day,
we were based in poly tunnel 4 along with
Sean who was kept very busy carving pumpkin lanterns.
Carole was on hand to help visitors
make printed bags
with wind fall apples.
As you can see,
there were some
