Our meeting was small, yet had four different crafts going on and one new member! There was bead knitting from Hilary:
I have never seen this before but their skirts are made by knitting with strings of beads and they look so gorgeous:
There was a very small amount of newly learned continental knitting from me (I can normal knit the "throwy" way...) which resulted in this not very impressive picture :)
There was bunting being made for a wedding by Josie in gorgeous colours (apologies for the truly awful picture):
There were babies trying to hide from the camera*
|*technically not craft, but worth showing anyway|
And Lauren was making (slightly creepy) headless dolls:
|We have been assured they will have heads in the fullness of time, |
at which point they will cease to be creepy...
With hairy armpits (the dolls, not Lauren):
|Perhaps poor picture timing on my part :)|
Despite our small numbers we had a nice catch up, with kids playing in the playground while we relaxed and did our thing.
We also discussed our potential theme / charity / team crafting a bit. I don't think we resolved the issue but our first step is some workshops - so I am going to get Lauren and Josie into some basic amigurumi type crochet next time (I just now remembered that I promised that...). A few workshops and a few more players and we might be ready for something more structured and organised.
Looking forward to crochet fun next time!
