Papers, and Pay it Forward, and a Pillow

The Papers have been out in strength to visit and photograph the A to Z Wall hanging:

This is from the Windsor and Eton Express

Pupils' iconic Windsor images to be displayed at castle

Schoolchildren and their families racked their brains to come up with iconic images of Windsor.
The children from Trinity St Stephen School in Vansittart Road teamed with their families in special 'after school' sessions to create the images in felt on a fabric background.
Luckily, 26 families came forward - one icon for each letter of the alphabet.
The resulting 6ft by 5ft creation is topped off by the school logo, knitted by headteacher Dalwyn Attwell.
You can see it at nearby St Stephen's Church until Monday.
Over the next month it will also be displayed at the Firestation in St Leonard's Road, Holy Trinity Church in Claremont Road, Windsor Library on Bachelors Acre, the museum at the Guildhall, and - to pupils' delight - the Education Centre at Windsor Castle from August 27 to September 2.
It returns to the school next term.

The Pay It Forward is this star:

A lovely lady, Marguerite, was part of a quilting bee: she had managed to keep up with all the blocks she was to send to the other members, but didn't have time to plan or cut the fabric for her own blocks.  The Bee Mama arranged to have others send her star blocks, but not enough for a quilt top.  I read about Marguerire on Hadley's blog, and having been recently the recipient of quilter's generosity, felt I should do something to Pay It Forward

 And the Pillow: this embroidery for a customer


  1. Soooo exciting about the alphabet quilt, isn't it? Lovely piecing and embroidery too - well done. x

  2. The beast is famous! Well done on pay it forward too!

  3. Ahh, infamy at last ;o)

    Nice of you to pay the blocks forward too

  4. Benta now you are a star! Lovely block and embroidery too.

  5. All very nice, but I still think your name should have been mentioned! Without your idea, creativity and putting it all together it would never have happened. xxx
