Christmas Festivities have started at Somerset Patchwork!

This week Christmas arrived early at Somerset. There has been a party nearly everyday!  Linda Bear’s Wednesday morning girls had a ‘Mad Hatters Christmas’ party with all of them wearing stunning headgear creations for lunch. There was even a glass or two of sparkling…mmm…something with strawberries and little umbrellas for special effect. Plenty of food was consumed to diffuse the bubbles.

Kim Bastiani’s Monday group, played ladies and had a sit down meal at the end of their class, there was even a place set for me! Thank you Anne and Jackie for making our delicious lunch. 

Please note the fine china and perfect cutlery…lunch in style!
One of Anne’s specialities…homemade strawberry sponge and cream…yummmmmm
Since finishing Mrs Billings I have had a bit of a creative dry spell, but I think the drought has finally broken. While playing with fabric the other day I came across this colour combination. A selection I have never worked in before. The books came out and the drawing started and now I have begun to stitch. There will be lots more photos to follow soon.

Until next time,

When in doubt, wear red shoes!
