Last weekend I was up in York at the Quilt Museum, my project was Christmas birds. Some of the children are regulars up there now and they have excellent machine skills. This time they learnt how to use a long doll making needle to sew a button through the stuffed bird. which secured the wings.
My Thursday smocking class is going well. We have practised lots of stitches and now we are moving onto making some smocked gift bags. The light wasn't great when I took the photo of the sample below.
I also have resurrected my sock knitting, not that I have any time on my hands at the moment but need something to fiddle with. I also must get on and just finish my diploma quilt.
I am hoping for a restful weekend as DS2 is going off to his respite carer so we are left to catch our breath and regain our strength for the next few weeks. DS is having a sleepover though with his closest friend and (thankfully) the Scout environmental day has been cancelled due to the weather. I suspect a little Christmas shopping will get completed as well.
Have a great weekend whatever you are up to.
