summer nights

I just love these beautiful summer nights we are having and there are more on the way…… Sitting outside way after the sun has set, with my knitting, listening to a spoken book. I love it. Hope you are having a good summer too, will keep you posted on the progress of my knitting.summer nights

Quilts

Our last craft class for the term and we are off to celebrate the summer!

Kate joined us today, have a look at her beautiful quilt!! I just love the colours and different patterns.kate's quiltIt is called a kaleidoscope quilt and you can literally see it dancing in front of your eyes. Kate has also made a lovely bag, very useful to bring along all the crafting projects

Kate also kindly brought along a magazine” Mollie Makes” goodness it is filled with ideas and such interesting articles. It might just have to be subscribed to 🙂 mollie makes magazineThank you so much Kate we will look out for this with great anticipation.

 

 

Lisa’s quilt is making great progress too, cannot wait to see it complete in September (no pressure then Lisa 😉

And of coarse no craft morning would be complete without a lovely cup of mint tea and some home baked cake (even if is a quick cake version)ltc tea

 

Thank you so much everybody for making the last few weeks so special, I cannot wait to see what September will hold in store for us.

Crafting for babies

Good morning beautiful world.

The sun has been shining for more than one week and today we are expecting the hottest day of the year. What is there not to love?  Life is so much nicer and easier when the sun shines.

We have had two babies arrive in our craft group, well friends and family have had babies, so there has been lots of “baby” activity.

Have a look at this beautiful quilt which has now travelled to Norway.

This in one lucky baby.

………and have a look at the pretty little gilet for a really tiny babydolly gilet

 

It was my daughters birthday too and it cannot go by without a little home made present. So we now have “Bummy”, I found the tutorial on Pinterest, so much fun to make. I added some scented granules and he smells delightful!.

No Craft morning would be complete without a little bit of something delicious, I’m afraid this is all that’s left……cake……… it was delicious and I will try and get the link to let you have the recipe too.

 

 

Next Thursday will be our last craft morning before we break up for the summer 😦 but the good news is that there will be a Wednesday and Thursday morning craft group and maybe even a Wednesday evening, starting in September. Lots to look forward to.

Have a great weekend
