Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

We had our last (of the year) Stitch session and we will be back on the 9th January

Merry Christmas

The little paper Christmas trees were made by the Stitchees for table decorations so a little ‘card’ was made 🙂

These were really popular at the fundraising stall at West Norwood Feast

Here’s a photo step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own. Bead and Cord

I like the cute yarn hat (on the red Christmas Tree in the first image).

Here’s a video tutorial by Handimania and if you don’t like videos then here’s the walk through with pictures. Handimania – Little yarn hats

If I had the patience I would try this one… lovely! Cargo Collective

A wonderful quilt created in response to the Paris attacks

Jackie, one of our very talented stitchees in her own words…RunnyCustard The Stitch 191215 WEB 001

It was just something I instantly wanted to do as soon as she I saw the image drawn by Jean Jullien – a French artist who lives in London, who has a website where he explains about the CND/Paris logo.  He posted it on social media and it went viral with others all over the world personalising it.

I saw it on the TV news and it just “spoke” to me, so to speak, so I felt I had to do something with it.

The quilt is composed of 130 squares to represent the 130 people who died.  There are 45 red and blue and 40 white squares.  It didn’t take long to make once I had decided how to – without thinking time probably about 24 hours in all.

The back of this wonderful textile wallhanging features hearts and the stitching of the symbol comes through.

 

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year

We hope to see you on the 9th January 😀
