Creative Day Out

It's been a crafty weekend. Yesterday my 8-year-old son, Sam, represented his cub pack at a crafting competition in Macclesfield and had a lovely time. And today I went to the Stitch and Creative Crafts show at the Greater Manchester Exhibition Centre with my sister Lindsey and her friend Caroline. Amongst other things I bought some books which have filled me with inspiration for crafty things to do.

It must be the time of craftiness. Last night my son TJ and I laid out ribbons and scraps on an old green silk scarf to make a cushion cover, for me to sew in place. I may embellish it with buttons, and sew some of the ribbons on with embroidery thread and nice stiches. I've also been making huge crocheted blankets, starting with a granny square, and working round and round it in greens and reds, if that makes sense. It's now big enough to keep my knees warm as I work on it, which is lovely on these frosty evenings up North.
