Recycling with friends

If you like reading the author Tom Clancy
you will need to go to the library for this book as I've recycled mine.  In fact a whole bunch of us tore old books up when we had a lovely day crafting at Park  Farm tearooms, farm shop & garden centre near Ramsbottom.  
Tomorrow I have the first of my three Christmas workshops and staying on the same theme and techniques here's what we are making.

More from where am I today ???

I'm not in Canada .....
I'm not in New York ....
Have you got it yet ??
This used to be a railway station but you are more likely to book a holiday, buy a caravan or craft supplies these days.

Autumn joys and scares

I woke to this lovely autumn morning.
Moved into the afternoon with a walk in Healey Dell Nature Reserve.
Then the neighbours gave us an evening fright with their fantastic pumpkin lanterns.

Happy Hoops

This is the third time I've run this workshop and it never ceases to amaze me how different each hoop is.
Some of the ladies used old table linen this time.
I think they worked really well.
Everyone had a lovely time including me.
Next time we are working on a Christmas wreath.

Prepping ......

I'm prepping for my next Beginners Craft Workshop on Saturday 25th October.
This time, inspired by Textile Artist Marna Lunt, I'm introducing vintage linens.
I've stocked up on buttons and hoops are at the ready.
