Country Christmas Crafts

Being so far away from your sewing machine, fabrics, fancy wool and kitchen is hard enough without your mother sending these lovely photos of the Busy Bees 'open house' day she went to...


Busy Bees is in Co. Durham and we went there about 3 years ago to do a little pre-Christmas craft workshop (which is what the lady mainly does) in her craft shed. There are american folk art/ country style painting, sewing and ...er...other workshops and of course most importantly tea and cake is included :D

Mmmmmmmm.

This was my attempt at a Christmassy "pail". It's a very easy pattern and I've since adapted it to make a pail with sheep on and a pail in the same fabric as the cushions in my room. Very addictive.

I hope she bought some goodies for you! Wow, that did look good.


Cute pail - it could only be improved by a vast number of chocolates inside ;-)

The pail looks great! I agree with dottycookie about it only being improved by adding chocs!
