Brenda is known for her Happy Quilts featuring colourful seaside scenes with lots of little houses. This time join Brenda to make a picture of a house at Christmas. This can be your own house, your fantasy house or one using a pattern created by Brenda in her naive style. An image will be available nearer the time. The picture above is one of Brenda’s own cottage at Christmas and gives an idea of what can be done.
