Angela Kefford - Holly and Berries

Angela moved to Pirton in 1969.

“I chose this topic because I have always loved holly and ivy which remind me of my childhood and the approach of Christmas. Although I have never done this sort of work before I was really inspired by the completed work shown at the Sewing Bees. It was suggested by another member of the Pirton Needlework Group that a quilted or padded effect would be attractive.

I drew the outline on paper and then traced it onto fabric ready for stitching. The entire work was completed in a single rainy Sunday afternoon when it was too wet for gardening.

I think the Millennium Screen is a wonderful piece of work which has involved many people of all ages, in fact a complete cross-section of Pirton Village.”
