Time to Celebrate!

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!

The Mollie Gets a Makeover!

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
way markers with added woolly wheel trims!

Shelagh's Morsbag Pod

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!
