Merry Christmas Everybody x x
"I'll protect you from the hooded claw,
keep the vampires from your door,
when the chips are down, I'll be around,
with my undying, death defying love for you"

First Festive Friday in St Ives

I made this patch to celebrate the first of three Festive Friday's in St Ives ~ tonight we are keeping the gallery open late, like many other traders, to catch a little bit of late~night~opening business. I'm looking forward to seeing all the town lit up and looking pretty, the kids are joining in too as there is a rumour Father Christmas might be visiting tonight..... Lots of people have made a lot of effort in St Ives this year so I think it will be special, I hope it is a success for all involved.

The patch is more sweet~smelling chocolate wrapper embroidered onto a batik patch, I love the spontaneity of this one.
A patch I made today using some of Carolyn's materials and a chocolate bar wrapper ~ I'm enjoying using all the sweetie wrappers we have around at the moment ~ they smell so lovely while I am working with them!
