In between days

Festivities fade
The in-between moments
To reflect and hope....

and do a little rug hooking maybe?

Enjoy the remaining days of 2012 - Jill

To give...

It's that time of year - present giving and present making too.
Here is a cushion Clare made for her friend Grace as a Christmas gift.
Made with wool pencil rovings,  using the punch-needle technique and working  on her  new wooden frame made by Tom (USA). 
The centre panel is cotton lawn on which Clare photo-printed the chicken design. This panel was then quilted.
Now the backing has been stitched to the front and the cushion is complete.
 I know Grace will be delighted with her gift.

December meeting

We all enjoyed our Christmas Meeting at Craft Central in Clerkenwell. Everyone was working on different projects whilst nibbling on lots of scrummy goodies!

This photo shows  Sandra's seat pad - now completed. I just love the colour combination.

We are now looking forward to our January meeting when Annie Sherburne will be coming along to give us lots of creative ideas for our rug hooking.

Festive Greetings to all - Jill
