Next week is the last youth club before Halloween and as the Village Hall organises a party, we are having Halloween Celebrations rather than a full blow party. But these things tend to escalate don't they? Which is why I found myself volunteering to make trick or treat party bags for the children with the fabric that belongs to youth club.
Not just any old fabric, but horrible polyester. It is truly awful and usually I wouldn't even contemplate sewing with it, but needs must and all that. The bags have been sewn together and I am now waiting for some black ribbon to arrive to act as ties.
Please excuse the photo as black fabric is very difficult to photograph.
Looking forward to Christmas, I was lucky enough to find a box of vintage Christmas decorations (there was a hint on the box!)
Inside the box is filled with vintage decorations.
And just to ram home the sheer loveliness of these decorations, here's a close up!
