If like me you are already busy thinking about the Christmas Celebrations you may forgive that I have been even slacker than usual about looking after this blog site of mine.  But I have things made for a Country Park Christmas fair in November and I am still recovering from the excitement of our daughters wedding this year!

It was a really special and beautiful day and there was  a country theme going on.  The decor was quirky and fun and when I am allowed I will share a few photos.  But there was a definite hessian vibe and hessian was laid down the centre of each wedding breakfast table.

Of course I rescued 6 rolls of it the next day, and have been busy up cycling.  Hessian is quite rough on the hands and sewing machine, but I am so lucky to have a Sailrite, it munches on through the coarse fibres spitting out the loose bits every where!  It can also handle the thick thread and has a permanent walking foot, so all good.  My next posting will be all hessian!
