2nd week of October

These are a few Christmas decorations I have made for the bushfire survivors. They are hexagons for the Christmas Tree and a star. There were other decorations made by the members of Vicscquilters Carrum Downs group, a lovely collection of decorations, machine embroidered bells, stars, wreaths angels.
Felt angels on dolly pegs, fabric gingerbread men, a wreath with fabric tied to the circle cut with pinking shears, stuffed birds, 2 squares of Christmas fabric with wadding in the middle with a hanger, so many different things. I took photos of them all I think Helen is putting them up on the scquilters blog look out for the link later.

I have finished the logo for DS#2's surcoat for their Celtic wedding. The join down the centre has been oversewn and now its not noticeable. Started to cut out the 2 coats today and found that instead of 9 m the 'person' serving me had cut 5m I was spitting chips until I found that she had missed charging me for it, the items on the docket were 2 different lots of thread, pattern, interfacing and Hemsilk and no velveteen. A visit to the local fabric shop entailed where I bought better quality velveteen, so a win/win for me.

You make lovely work!! the Celtic design is great.Very interesting reading about handfastening. A variation of it is a very old tradition in here in Norway as well! Maybe the vikings introdused it in Ireland and England??
