This week we have had another 3 Christmas rag rugging courses at the shop, and I have had a further 2 at home. I haven’t taken pictures of them all, but here are Jill and Sarah making rag rug Christmas trees at my house this weekend ……

I have also been catching up on some of my own work, a lady saw one of my Goldwork pieces in an exhibition and commissioned me to make one for her. The original was on navy silk, but I think I prefer this one which she wanted on black silk.

Oh well, back to it, I’ve got lots of Christmas presents to make and not enough time, as usual !
