It's time to start thinking about Christmas and I had hoped to open this blogpost with some pics of gorgeous piglets but sadly Mollie Pig (above) only had one stillborn piglet earlier this week. Obviously we are all very disappointed and sad but the good news is she seems to be recovering well and is enjoying lots of cuddles and fuss!
On a happier note I get to spend some time away from HHHQ and work in another artist's studio. Sarah Valentine comes up with some pretty Christmas decoration ideas for some great workshops leading up to the big event. These Christmas Cones are great for dressing the tree, using up some pretty textiles and even make lovely gift boxes!
Sarah is running a workshop making these here at HH HQ on Saturday 4th November, everything is included and you get to use some lovely notions...
Helen's popular Mohair Bear Workshop is running again on Saturdays 7th and 14th October. Jointed and made using traditional techniques. There's a little homework to do in the week between but everyone leaves the 2nd workshop with a completed bear, pattern and instructions along with details on sourcing materials. £70 for the two days and everything you will need is here!
This cutie was made recently at one of Super Sue's needlefelting workshops! The little animals just get better and better! Sue is here again on 22nd October, 2nd and 10th December! £40 and you take your tools home with you so you can carry on stabbing...
