So, what have I been up to since I last shared my news here? Well last month I went to a Hen Do up in Sheffield which, including cocktails and karaoke, was a traditional affair with a bit of crafting thrown in for good measure. The day started with pot and glass painting and fascinator making which was right up my street. I was quite chuffed with my creations but sadly won’t get my champagne flute until the Big Day in July – but was reunited with a mixing bowl I painted up there last summer when visiting another friend.
It does seem that making stuff is becoming a more acceptable part of socialising, and one I whole-heartedly subscribe to. Last month I also went along to a work Knitting Club in the hope that someone would help me with my crochet skills (or lack of) and thoroughly enjoyed myself despite the sad state of the flower I created. I also fully intend to go along to a crafty MeetUp – sadly the last one I fancied wasn’t do-able, but I will get along to one eventually.
Last weekend I was also reminded how damn good us English folk are at crafting. On Saturday I went to a Canal-side festival in Little Venice and was surprised how cool it was –
The rest of the Bank Holiday was filled with other traditional activities (read barbequing and drinking) and by the end of it I was pretty knackered. But, a week on, I can’t wait for the next one.
Which I will be in Peru for.
Doubt that one will be particularly relaxing either...
