Christmas Table mats

Yesterday along with two Penguins on ice advent calendars I made six table mats using printed panels. We are having a sales table at our Quilting groups coffee morning so I think I will take them there first before putting them on my stall.

V.W. Camper van's

 
It is just amazing how much can be made  with just half a meter of fabric.
 
Key fob's ,Phone /coin /card purses  and the bags are ready for Apple Day
at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, 

                                         What to do with what was left ,put it on to shoppers.
                                                   Now I have nothing left.

                             Looking at my photos I think I might need a new camera ,perhaps put
                                   it on my Christmas list.


                            I am now working on making Advent Calendars ready for next month.

                         The Norfolk Young Quilter is going from strength to strength we now
                          have 15 girls . The stack and wack  cushion cover was not only mad but
                          Quilted all with time to spare, we have helper stay to supervise only.
                           The next meeting is hand sewing just to give them something different.

                          Next week M.C and I will be making shopper bags to sell at  coffee mornings
                           to raise money for more supply's   for the N,Y,Q.

                            Well back to the sewing machine  ,after a coffee.
                             have a good week end

Using Jenny Rayment's book

                             This will form the side panel's of my Christmas table runner.

            The centre panel is made from squares of red or cream with squares of cream folded on the corners. The folded edge is then rolled and hand stitched in place.  The above is made from two strips of cream and a strip of red stitched with folded edges onto the red .I have stitched a bar at intervals so I can roll the edge  and stitch that down. These are all different elements from Jenny's book  ( Creative Tucks and Textures )   I will try and get more done this week but I have our Craft fair this week and Norfolk Young  Quilters an Saturday.

Guernsey, Candie Cemetery


A close up of the Flower above


 
 
 
 This is a very old cemetery , with some of the inscriptions of Men from England that were in regiments, as the three canons depict .



In Guernsey when a wife is entombed with her husband she is always given her maiden name.




 
The view below is from the cemetery looking to-ward  VICTORIA TOWER  built after Queen Victoria's visit to the Island .
