I haven't managed to get much crafting done this week, I have been trying to catch up on little jobs that I have neglected to do during the summer holidays as well as two mother and toddler groups and a wiggle and giggle baby singing class.
With today being National crochet day I was determined to get the hook out, I waited until Isla-Rose had her nap, I knew I didn't have long and would only get something small done so I decided to freshen up last years winter coat with some funky chunky crochet buttons.
I'm really pleased with them, the coat is off to the dry cleaners on Monday and then I shall sew them on and post some piccies of the finished coat.
I am definitely going to need a matching hat and scarf .
I have managed to do a little Christmas project this week, I have made my jars of chutney all pretty.
I have discovered a wonderful yarn shop very close to where I live. The shop has been there years and was very old and tatty, but has now been taken over by a new owner and it's wonderful, I was like a child in a sweet shop, I could have spent hours in there but the hubby was outside waiting in the car with three bored children on what was quite a hot day. I managed to grab a leaflet from the counter about a meet up on Thursday mornings at the shop, I just need to take whatever I am working on and I will be supplied with coffee and cake and yarn loving people to natter with, sounds good I will let you know how I get on.
The shop's called "Knitworking" it's in Nottingham it doesn't have a website yet but can be found on Ravelry as knitworking.
