Before everyone puts their old Christmas cards away…

An annual event – spend hours making piles of Christmas biscuits for the East of England Singer’s Christmas concert, and enjoy watching them being demolished in 10 minutes by an enthusiastic audience during the interval!
Our ‘Globetrotting Christmas’ concert this weekend at St John’s Carrington was hard work and absolutely beautiful in equal measure.
My latest felted embroidery work – Ancient Tree.
I displayed this in public without a glass frontage and it attracted a lot of interest. The texture, colours and intricacy of the embroidery were very visible.
I will be experimenting with new ways of displaying in 2019. Watch this space!
This is my favourite thing I made for Christmas this year!
3D padded Christmas Tree bunting made with muted greens. red and brown fabrics – linen, harris tweed, velvet, crinkled, patterned and hand trimmed on folded red ribbon. Impeccable finish. Will last for years!

A bit of an adventure – well worth a bit of effort!

One of my favourite moments of creativity – the vision!
Now I simply have to find the time to create…
