Busy Week

This is 2 Turtle Doves for The Christmas Challenge Blog from Just Nan as yet I have not had time to put the ornament together yet, I stitched this and the Biscornu below while I was away at Wortley Hall.

Here is my biscornu for the Basket of biscornu challenge, I made it as a scissor keep for a pair of pinking shears I received for Christmas thinking the handles where grey/red I did it in those colours but when I got the scissors out to my horror I found the handles where actually grey/orange so I will have to make another one.

As I have already mentioned I have been staying at Wortley Hall this week doing a course I thought I would show you a couple of photos of what a beautiful place it was. Inside it was like a maze it took a long time to find my room when I booked in, the food was lovely, I had a very stimulating week doing Health and safety and did loads of networking with the other midwives on the course.
