A Crafty Individual Indeed.............!

Its been a while - I've been has thrown some unexpected events at me and mine!
On a crafty note I have just spent the weekend in the company of Jean Hardy of Crafty Individuals, her business partner Malcolm and 10 other crafty ladies!
What a brill time! Very relaxed pace, great food and wonderful company.
On the Saturday we made a framed display box and on the Sunday we made this - not sure what to call it!
I loved looking at everyone elses' creations - we all had a different take on the tasks. Very inspiring!
(confession - I have a new stash of stamps to play with ;-) )
Saturday was such a beautiful day and we spent the evening in a local pubs' beer garden in Yarm - ahhhhh the bliss of the English Sun!

On another note the Crochet is coming along - I have decided to make a blanket  - I figured it  would give me the experience I need to feel comfortable with all things crochet!

It goes everywhere with me - that's the great thing about it!  I have had some funny looks though LOL.
Its slowly coming along and I picked the brightest colour of yarn I could find! My son says "it'll take you years Mum to finish that!! ".  Lets hope he's wrong!

Keep well everyone

PS if you are the ********* that stole our car off our drive then I hope you ******** in hell!
(apologies to the innocent - but I needed to get that off my chest!)

Hi Suzy - lovely stuff from your CI weekend.
Some people are so cruel, and I'm sorry to hear about the theft of your car. I totally agree with your sentiment! I felt like that when my Alfa Spider was stolen a few years back from a multi-story car park while I was at work. It was return two weeks later, wrecked!!

Oh no Susie, what an awful thing to happen - we don't mind you getting if off your chest here.
As for the crafty weekend it sounds like a wonderful time was had. Love the box frame and the houses thingy. I didn't know you were doing crochet, it looks gorgeous, love the colour :)
