Winter comes early

Apparently there's snow forecast for tomorrow. I shouldn't be surprised I suppose, we are on the edge of the Peak District, but October was so mild.  Still, as soon as we shifted into November the temperature's dropped sharply.

It seems very appropriate as I've been in a festive frame of mind. Like many makers I've been surrounded by handmade Christmas decorations and giving the website it's winter wrappings. Its all snowmen in the workshop itself this week and last Saturday last I had great fun doing an angel workshop at Betty's Sewing Box.

The ladies made some beautiful little angels using 'girl' peg doll shapes, felt, lace, net, linen... lovely materials. Betty's is such a lovely atmosphere and a wonderful place for workshops.  Wonderful place for tea and cake too, well worth a visit if you haven't discovered it yet,

My photos of the angels made on the day were terribly blurry so there's one below from one of the participants (thank you!).  The little angels have a cheeky windswept quality (much like we will have by tomorrow evening) and are great fun to make. Perhaps a tutorial?
