The year starts with a Wedding!

An exciting start to 2014 in my household is eldest daughter’s wedding!  Needless to say the planning and making involved in this has replaced quite a lot of my own textile making time over the Christmas hols, but for a good cause.  We have all been busy making garlands and bunting with paper hearts cut out of old books, searching for fabrics for wedding outfit, going out suit shopping with the men, thinking about champagne.  Great fun!

It’s a winter wedding, so we’ll all have to wrap up warm in cosy cardis and gloves – champagne and canapes on a Routemaster bus picking us up from Brixton registry office – Virginia spent her teens coming home from nights out on the 159 night bus, which was a Routemaster at the time, so it’ll be very familiar.

Over Christmas I did manage to make one needlefelted Woodpecker, who matches the colours in this picture.  Maybe he should be attached to the bus in some way!!  New workshop dates to be added very soon for Spring 2014.

HAPPY NEW YEAR  to all my loyal workshop participants, and welcome to new ones.
