My feet are up and I am absolutely stuffed but I have this hidden excitement that I cannot contain that always comes around so quickly every year! I have just volunteered at the Adelaide Christmas Pageant. I woke up before dawn and digged through my closet for my favourite Christmas shirt and Christmas accessories to get me in the Christmas spirit. It really is such a fun experience and seeing such an amazing team that comes together and unites for the pageant reminds me what Christmas is really about. It is a time to give, time to thank Jesus, and a time to cherish others in your life.
For me Christmas is always a time of the year where I seem to craft and create more, and I have been busy doing this non-stop. As a result, my poor fingers are suffering a severe case of tendinitis but it is hard to pull the reins in when you are crafting away! I have quite a few ongoing projects that I have set myself a goal to finish before Christmas. There are so many possibilities to craft for Christmas that are great for gift giving so why not get inspired by attending a Christmas workshop by Flutterby Sewists, part of Functional Skills Focus.
If you don’t know, Flutterby Sewists is the current group program that is nearly coming to an end for the year held at Old Noarlunga. The program involves teaching skills in a sequence that builds confidence to sew more independently, and is generously supported by the charity Aspire to Inspire Together. There are going to be some very proud sewists graduating the Flutterby Sewists Basic Sewing License and I have been so impressed by their dedication, persistence, patience, kindness and creativity throughout the program. An extension to this program is short workshops which are open to everyone from the community interested in creating something that is funky, creative and unique!
Thanks to the lovely Flutterby Sewists, you can see a close up of the projects available. Click the link to see the flyer FSF Christmas Workshops 2017. Workshops on offer include an Advent Calendar, Applique Bag and a Candy Cane Inspired Christmas Tree. There is certainly something for everyone from 8 years and up!
