Last week was a mega stitching fest with the Christmas meeting of Country Roads Quilters where, between us, we made fifty Bags for Beads of Courage, followed by a two day workshop with Helen Howes working on trees and tigers. I have just finished off my wall hanging from the workshop and called it "Indigo Winter Woods".
