Bits and Pieces

Hello all, hope you are having a good weekend.

I finally finished working on the kantha style embroidery piece I took on holiday with me - a girl can never have too many fabric baskets!

I haven't decided what is going in it, but I am loving the result!

I spent a couple of hours yesterday with the ladies from Chertsey Museum.  We had a go at two crafts, making pompoms (5 at a time) and using fleece or jumpers from a charity shop to make boot toppers (or legwarmers)

 Loads of pompoms

Lots of brightly coloured boot toppers

And Show and Tell from December and January's sessions:


  1. LOVE the pom poms xx .. the Kantha work on the basket always reminds me of smocking x

  2. Love the basket and the christmas projects is so gorgeous.
    Have a fun weekend.

  3. A really pretty basket! What are the pom-poms going to be used on?

  4. the basket is lovely and could be used for so many things. can see fun was had at the group and the Christmas projects are so nice

  5. What a lovely array of projects your ladies have produced Benta. I love your Kantha basket, I hope it has pride of place on your shelf!

  6. Love the basket ... and those toppers remind me of the swinging 60s when we all wore funny stuff.

  7. The basket looks great. The multi-coloured pompoms are really cute, too.

  8. Your basket looks wonderful - the embroidery really gives an extra dimension. The boot toppers and December projects look great too :)
