Christmas Bunting and a visit to Kew

 6th November 2020


Just started another lockdown but feel much better about it this time!!

The community where I live have asked if I would write an article for the magazine on a Christmas Craft which spurred me to make something! Looked on Pinterest and found a tutorial for Christmas Tree bunting and this is my version...


...made a card template...


...traced around to make a paper template...


...sandwich of fabric, backing, wadding and front....


....pin to sandwich and machine around....





...cut out with pinking shears....



....attach to ribbon/tape with a button ....



...think I will put it up in our entrance hall, other shapes could be star, bell, robin or heart or even a mixture!!

Last week I took my daughter and granddaughter to Kew for the Gruffalo Trail, the colours were magnificent and my photos don't do them justice as it was a grey day but here is a flavour.....

Also made 2 Christmas cakes ...


.....these will be 'fed' weekly with brandy!!

Stay safe x
