Bit of this and bit of that......

I thought I had a been a bit quiet with my hand crafts, but after sorting out some photos it seems my little hands have been busy as usual.

I decided to make another Road Trip Scarf, if you remember the last one I made I donated to Higham Piecemakers bi annual exhibitions sales table.

A percentage of the cost of this yarn goes to W.I
and a selfie

They say it is going to be a cold winter, so I am prepared

I was also asked to make some more of these........

believe me they do keep your hands warm

 At the NEC Exhibition of Quilts I bought a pattern for a miniature that needed little sewing, but a glue pen would be handy.  The glue pen was indeed handy when it came to attaching those tiny houses and trees, but cutting them out took an age. You do have to sew to keep everything in place, but the secret is laying a piece of Tulle over your scene then quilting through all layers.  I am not sure if you can see that on the photograph, 
Finished size 7.5" x 9.75"

What next..... Oh yes, its getting to the time of year when the big December celebrations are creeping up (don't want to say it out loud), and a friend pinned this so I thought I would play.......

You never have the right beads but I can try

Not bad...

they will all be different I suppose

The red looks good
and while the beads were out I made a few stitch markers

a bit fiddly but hopefully will do the trick

I am off on Sunday to Malvern Quilt show, so we will see if that inspires.
