Craft Club

I hold a craft club every other Wednesday. It is a spin off from crochet lessons and means people who just want to make a little something or get some 'craft clinic' on a project they are stuck on they can drop in for tea and cake. It really helps my crochet enthusiasts go it alone once they have learnt the basics with a little safety net of checking in with me when they get to a difficult bit.

Tonight we had a little card workshop. I showed my favourite 'four squares in a square' design. The photo is late at night so not the best light available BUT look what everyone came up with...

I think it is great that they are all different. We learnt to ink the edges, make background mats and use a little technique for handwriting a message, whatever your handwriting looks like.

Everyone made two cards each and enjoyed cutting and sticking, chatting and laughing

I would like to say a big thank you to all the regular commenters on my blog you really make me smile and it makes me think of something new to show and keeps my motivation going. Thanks a million. Jo x
