When we went ice-skating over half term, I think I forgot to mention it was held in a church to celebrate the Festival of Light, (a tenuous link I am probably missing - walking on water?), but as we were leaving, I spotted this beautiful creation...
All the crosses are made by different methods, appliqué, embroidery, some crochet, beading and all sorts. Each square was about 3", I took the photo on my phone and promptly forgot about it, until now.
On Sunday, we accompanied dear Beaver son to a different church for the Remembrance Sunday service...
All the uniformed groups marched about half a mile to the church; the village had not seen anything like it for 18 years apparently; it was such a success, they are already talking about a marquee in the graveyard and a TV link for next year as there wasn't enough room in church for everyone!
Last night whilst flitting through blogs I spotted both Krista and Nova's gorgeous 2 Zip Hipsters. I had, (note, had) this pattern on my imaginary list of 'wants' for ages, and so how brilliant when I remembered I had seen it at Michelle Patterns, and look, it was only $5 until 25th Nov. I have it now!
Another bargain to partake of, if you haven't heard already, shipping is free to anywhere in the world from Spoonflower today - so be quick... a lovely yard of Heather Ross Underwater Sisters is heading my way ;)
If you need a laugh, this is the funniest post I have read in a long time; you've heard of Jake the Peg, well this is Jan the Jeg!
And finally, don't let my beady eye scare the children; an unsuccessful photo to show you my new hair! You'll have to trust me that it is the cut I wanted.
Linking with Cindy and the Random Thursday folks xxx
