I thought I would share the socking’s I made this year as they are so easy to make and look so cute!
I got some large scrap paper and drew and cut out my socking shape, then I pinned the fabric to the shape and cut two pieces of fabric out. With the nice material facing inwards, I stitched the fabric together and turned the fabric the right way around. I then stitched on a strip of white fluffy fabric (very Christmasy) and to finish it off added 3 cute bells to one side. I made 3 in different sizes and love how great they look hanging off the radiator, as we don’t have a fire place.
I also have a long list of other Christmas craft projects I would like to complete before Christmas, wish me luck!

I recently went on a glass workshop at Inlight Contemporary Glass Fusion in Hove, I had a great time and made 2 glass coasters. Chantal Mesnard who runs the classes makes beautiful clocks and dinnerware and other very inspiring work.
I made two coasters and fused glass and wire on top and inside the glass, we had two panels of glass and sandwiched items in between the glass and used to produce a coaster. We could each make our own tile design and she had a book of ideas which could inspire us.
I did enjoy the workshop when we got started, before we began we had to stand and listen to an hour talk about what we were going to do, which I forgot a lot of. It would have been far nicer to break this up throughout the session, in steps so we could remember it all. No questions were allowed to be asked and I didn’t feel very enthusiastic about making after the talk. So I thought I would just experiment a little and see how things turned out, as I know glass has a mind of its own in the kiln.
It felt a lot like being at school; it wasn’t a relaxing friendly atmosphere. Asking questions lead to snappy response and I didn’t feel comfortable. If you want to make some pretty coasters or jewellery I would recommend this glass but if you wanted to start it as a hobby and be inspired by a mentor then maybe this is not for you.
