My first hosted Crafternoon

This weekend a group of lovely ladies came to my house, ranging from the age of six months to (ahem) years. We knitted, crocheted  and sewed but we also ate, drank and cackled throughout.

Knitting and crochet

There was an abundance of food brought; cakes, waffles, cheeses, biscuits, crisps, pate and a ton of white wine and prosecco.

Love waffles

Some of us had little or no experience of making stuff, others had some leftover to share. I learned a spot of crochet from Bridie, although by this stage my mental capability to take anything meaningful  in was flagging (I blame the excitement… not the prosecco…)

Learning to crochet

My chum Fay made her first ever piped cushion! Her excitement and delight was awesome.

  1. Definitely (ahem) years. Lot’s of nice things to eat and drink. And wonderful women to stitch and witter with. And Joanne was the perfect host which is why she didn’t really have time to sit and learn crochet.

  2. Marie I agree with you – how I wish my friends were in to crafts so that I could go to lovely get togethers like this! Looks like you had so much fun.

    Really love your spotty blouse tucked in, looks lovely.
