GOING NOWHERE, IT'S REALLY SOMETHING
GETTING BUSY, DOING NOTHING...
I know last week's post was a long one, but it was great to see that so many of you enjoyed the tale of the felty day! It's a shorter post this week but I have three desks-worth to share!
I'm going to be running the local WI Craft Club with Janet (felting partner-in-crime) - we had a good brain-storming session on the hour long drive back from the workshop. The first is going to be felt Christmas ornaments, so I had to make up a couple of samples:
The crafters can either make something like this, or pink the edges and do running stitch around the edge. And use a fabric scrap for the wing or just some felt. Use a wooden button or a coloured one...it'll be interesting to see how the choices pan out!
I've booked a table for the WI at the local Christmas Carnival fair, where we'll be making a variety of products to raise some cash...jams, chutneys, lemon curds, mincemeat, crafts, pine cone firelighters, bunting. I've done these as my contribution:
Desk No 2!
Maybe some of the Christmas birds will end up on the stall as well, who knows?!
I dug out the Christmas fabric from my stash as well, in order to make bunting. Funnily enough, I don't have that much, but am determined to use it all up!
Desk No 3!
I also got out some fabrics to run up 4 more drawstring bags for my brother Steve to sell to his dancing classmates, to keep their dancing shoes in - all in aid of the RNLI.
This makes me happy! I have had time to do more makes this week, as my left ankle (hypermobility syndrome = poorly/sore) has curtailed my walking a bit. WHICH I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT!!! Ah well.....
We popped up to Llandeilo yesterday - the autumn colours in the Towy Valley were stunning - and I had to pop in to Deb's Wool Shop, where I got a huge hug :-D I needed to buy some of the tinsel wool for a Christmas project...
Do you think a Christmas mini skirt is a good idea??! ;-)
Have a great crafty week!! xxxxx
