Church Seasons Colouring Sheet

I help a local church run workshops for the local school. We usually cover part of the Christian story related to the time of year. The next one we are looking at God as Trinity and the Seasons of the Church Year.

Somewhere I saw a the Church Seasons represented as a circle (possibly making a wheel using a couple of paper plates). I suggested that we make a colouring sheet to show the seasons and their associated colours. After an hour on excel this is the result.

Crafting 2016 – Remembrance Preaching Scarf

Last year, on Remembrance Sunday, I was looking at my husband as he lead the service and his choice of stole. A difficult choice – do you go for a preaching scarf (technically correct if there is not eucharist) or a stole (more in keeping with the tone of the day). So decided to make him a preaching scarf explicitly for Remembrance Sunday and save him the choice.



Crafting 2016 -Shrugs

I love wearing shrugs. I made myself two new ones.


The pattern was free ( and very easy to follow.

One problem I have with shrugs and boleros is they tend to fall off the hanger. With some that I have brought I use the label to loop over the top of the hanger. Not long after I made these I sewed a little bit of ribbon into the next to loop over the top of the hanger. I now plan to sew ribbon into other clothes that fall of the hanger.
