It  has been a busy time here at Love to Craft, many new projects and a new baby too.

You might know that my other passion ( I have many) is making pottery. I’m very proud of my latest piece Ela vase so much fun to make. I’m really pleased with the way the glaze turned out, not always predictable.

Caroline has very quietly started kintting a little farm, the first cuties look so sweet!Caroline's sheep

 

We were very busy bees yesterday at our tea cosy felting workshop. These are the felted tea cosies, drying and waiting to be embellished further today.

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
