Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Christmas QAL - July pt3 - by GEORGE!

You know what?  It's not very festive round here yet - so we need to put that right!

So here is GEORGE THE SCARECROW in his Santa hat to get us in the mood. Yup - he looks like Lesley's Granddad George, so George it is.


I wonder if Granddad George ever wore a Santa hat...?  Actually, I wonder if Granddad George ever looking this grumpy!

Time for a bit of piecing, I think - and then, a little festive baking?  Mmmmm!

  1. Hahaha...no, my grandfather never looked so sour! But I shall smile every time I see Scarecrow George...so glad he at least has a face now! He's such a cute sourpuss, especially with that Santa hat!

    1. George is back with his flat cap now, Lesley and we're off on a quick trip to the allotment to get him settled in!

  2. At least George now has not just a name but a face so your Mum will find him far less creepy :}

    1. I hope so - for a moment there it was like that episode of Dr Who where Maureen Lipman steals everyone's face!

    2. Might have swapped one Dr Who for another - remember the scarey scarecrow one? Think it was called 'the family' set in a boarding school in 1910's.

  4. George is a good name, but he's a grumpy one. I'm sure Lesley appreciates the Santa hat since she loves Santa.

    1. Well, I hope he will scare away the pigeons with his grumpy face, Joanna! I'll show a pic of him in situ tomorrow maybe (probably with a pigeon sitting on his hat!!)
