Coffee and craft update

It has been a busy few weeks, my craft room is upside down as I balance organisation of classes, my new embroidery course and all the usual life stresses I could do without. Coffee and craft has brought along a few more participants from various walks of life to lighten my time. Many participated in simple kits to make decorations and more complex chicken scratch classes. I also had some crochet newbies who did really well.



Karen started a spicier life using her stash. She is doing very well considering she has never crocheted a blanket before.

Eileen made a start on a ribbon Xmas tree.

I finished my unicorn blanket which I had designed.
Coffee and craft dates are on the right side of blog. These events are free although donations can be popped into the Kiwoko jar. There is a cost for kits required otherwise bring you own craft or simply call for a cuppa and a chat. Classes will also appear randomly and advertised on Facebook and Instagram with fee attached

Coffee and craft- time to get things finished

I thoroughly enjoyed the Spicier life cal and managed to get it completed within a week of it being completed. J felt it was too nice to keep so I will do another at some point and one for sale in my IrishMinidoe etsy shop.





 




I also finished a C2C baby boy blanket for my stash also on Etsy.
 

This year I also decided any workshop items had to be finished as close to their start date as possible and so far so good. Loved this embroidery with Margaret Lee. I tweaked my design a bit.

A little design in progress which is for sale on Etsy but I will have completed pattern soon.



Coffee and craft- N.I Big Sock

Pamela came to visit and we had a morning to focus on hexagons for the N.I Big Sock. Very industrious morning with paper cutting, fabric cutting and sewing.

Still time for a cuppa and a chat of course.
I have lots of supplies do we can continue on any coffee and craft morning. Just check out the dates and let me know you are coming along.
