October you whizzed by even faster than last month....or was it just me thought that .... so what have I been crafting?
Last night we had a lovely fun Halloween party at the Craftshare group. Most of us dressed up and our recent autumn/Halloween/bonfire night hanging was perfect on the wall in the room. The ladies really did a great job with this one.
A little gift was given to all, a lovely touch by the ladies who run the group. A jar full of crafting goodies for us to use in the coming weeks.
The autumnal themed hanging will be coming down next week and the poppy one will be put back up for the remembrance period.
The autumn one will return again for a short time and then we'll all be busy working on a Christmas one to be hung in time for the festivities.... 9 weeks did I hear someone say?
We've been asked to make Christmas gifts. A rabbit family have come to life on my knitting needles.
I've been really excited, one quilting lady has shown me how to make a lovely patchwork project. I've started it and its FANTASTIC. I'm so thrilled with how its turning out. Its going to be a gift so I can't show that here just in case the person sees it.
A birthday card has been stitched and posted out early October. The recipient loved it.
A new start, another Christmas gift (yes Linda, this is the one I was supposed to be SAL'ing with you and yours is almost finished lol)
A little light reading, of course its the annual JCS ornament magazine. A lot of ladies have said they were disappointed with it, but I found quite a few I like this time. I have them all from the year 2000 and often look at them for inspiration when finishing off items.
Another little stitch project has been completed, I cant show that till its been received and I have a knitting project on the needles that I seem to have forgotten to take a snap of.
The monthly challenge is stitched, that just needs to be finished off, mine will be late for the album this time. It was stitched in plenty of time, sat there on my table awaiting the finishing and here we are the last day of the month and it's still sitting there unfinished..... sorry Christine.
Well that about wraps up October, I hope you've all had a good month. The weather here in the UK has been strange, cold one day and decidedly warm the next. Today the suns out and it's a whopping 19 degrees, very weird as we head into November tomorrow. It's usually the time to break out the sweaters but mine are still tucked up in the back of the wardrobe. No doubt now I've said that we'll be in for a cold spell......... ha ha did I really type that!
Take care and make time in your busy life to craft, it's the best hobby there is!
