These green and red fabrics have a subtle Christmas theme and make some great Christmas bunting  So if you have an over sized bull lying around taking up space this Christmas I think you will agree that bunting maketh the bull !!  Available at the LimeGreen Umbrella in Sligo upstairs in Lyons.

Leaping Reindeer Handstitched Cards

It is the season to be jolly! time for card making.  Last Thursday while in the LimeGreen Umbrella these trees and leaping reindeer were hand stitched and designed into a Christmas card combining paper, felt, fabric and hand stitched embroidery.  These are the mainly green with red accent but will have to try mainly red with green accent.  What do you think ?

Saturday Bunting Day Beltra Market

We used fabric markers, crayons, felt and fabric. We stitched by hand and machine, cut.pasted , drew and coloured until we had made a selection of flags to make almost 15 meters of bunting. It was bunting all the way at Beltra Country Market last Saturday the goal was to produce enough flags to create 15 meters of bunting in a mere two hours ! and happily we made 14.75 meters just two flags short of the target !! take a look at the work in progress on the Facebook page Bunting workshop at Beltra Market
