Having been struck down with a bout of my winter madness (crochet) I decided to begin holding crochet workshops at home as well as cookery workshops, and yesterday we had the first. I really cannot get enough of this craft, so lovely are the colours and textures of the yarns I work with. I am never sated – always on the lookout or planning the next project. A group of ladies came over to the house and we had a lovely few hours together.
Knowing it would not be easy to teach absolute beginners I set the scene.
A relaxing water feature.
Freshly baked Banana and Blueberry Bread….and cups of tea.
I prepared them a small gift each of a needle case and a small starter kit.
The plan was to make granny squares.
Waiting for the students to arrive was a little nerve wracking!
So I lit a candle!
And put some examples of what can be created if you learn this beautiful craft.
It was a fabulous afternoon – tricky at times because I had kind of assumed people would find it easy! But everyone managed to make something to take home with them and I thought they were brilliant! I hope they will become total craft addicts!
Like me…..am so pleased with my new project…started a short time ago. A cosy snood…it’s going to be beautiful……
