Wow, what an afternoon, or should I say “Crafternoon”?
A houseful of lovely people busily crafting away to the tune of “Café Olé” on the stereo, fuelled by home-grown egg sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and Red Nose fairy cakes.
Oh, and gallons of Bucks Fizz:)
The dining table was laden with masses of fabric and supplies, together with printouts of the projects on offer.
The coffee table in the lounge housed yet more felt and yarn for what turned out to be a good variety of crafts for everyone to choose from.
Mr. H-L played Butler in his lunch break as he was working from home.
The felt chicks were very popular makes.
Two ladies made good headway with their Cloud mobiles and took them home to finish off.
A classic Red Nose at the start of its crochet journey…..
My daughter’s very first attempt at sewing….
….a cushion for her boyfriend to take on his fishing trips.
Didn’t she do well?!
Mollie Makes’ own rag doll, Mollie, was lovingly crafted as a joint effort between a mother-daughter combo.
Just the eyelashes and mouth to add at close of play.
A Hen doorstop (as seen in an earlier blog post) reached the stuffing stage before the school run ended play.
I am assured photos of all finished off items will be winging their way to me in due course.
All in all, a very jolly and productive three hours was had by everyone…..
….and £265 raised so far with further pledges yet to be collected!
I would like to express HUGE thanks to Ali of Thimberlina, Kerri of Bristol Crochet and Sarah Holmes for their very generous donation of supplies for this event, without which such a great choice of materials would not have been available.
