Unusual Decorations!

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!

It's In The Bag!

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!
