It was fun getting the table ready and making everything welcoming for the workshop - I thought I would have everything finished in plenty of time but ten minutes before the workshop started I was still running around doing last minute tweaks.
Table all set..............
Cakes and treats prepared............
Some I made earlier!
We all share a great love of crochet and yarn, and everyone experienced such a sense of achievement when they produced "the cutest sweetest tiny pumpkins" - it's quite hard to put into words the beauty of creating something, or managing to follow a tricky pattern, and the lovely warm feelings you get when people admire your work.
So many funny stories were shared, it's seems that partners don't always share the love and beauty of yarn, they don't understand the desire to buy that perfect ball of merino when you really don't know what you will do with it or where you will put it. Yarn is carefully stored ( hidden) under the bed, behind the sofa, in the boot! and sometimes it is cherished and stored in beautiful boxes all perfectly colour co-ordinated - I think you all know who you are!
At times you could hear a pin drop everyone was concentrating so hard, it wasn't a bit like our noisy chatty "Crochet Club" nights, some beautiful autumnal lovelies were produced and I can't wait to see the finished wreaths.
Just when I thought I could put my feet up everyone is talking about a Christmas Wreath workshop!
I'm so lucky to have the beginnings of a little business that allows me to meet lots of lovely people, be creative and earn enough money to replenish my ever depleting yarn stash.
