Welcome to another calligraphy review! This time I am happy to say that the review is a lot more favourable. Unfortunately social distancing and COVID-19 has put the Settlers’ events on hold for the time being we are looking forward to a time when this is all over and we can put on our fantastic event at a later stage.
It can’t have escaped your attention that the world is in an unprecidented state of crisis.
Many more people are staying in their homes than ever before and while we all enjoy a bit of quiet time to reflect and relax, for some of us the length of time we are staying in our homes can be very wearing.
I will do my best to create as much free and entertaining content as possible for you to stop you climbing the walls.
For the first time in what feels like forever the sun is out! Hooray! It makes a change from all the rain we’ve been having.
I’ve been busy doing a fair bit of sewing over the last few days, not something I normally do. However I am feeling more confident with my sewing skills so maybe it’s true what they say; practice really does make perfect!
I hope you’ve had a crafty and productive weekend! I’ve been super busy, this week (as always) with lots of Settlers activities and making a lot of content for the blog!
I am so close to finishing work on the mohair poncho, but the last bit seems to be taking the longest! I am deaparate to get it finished so I will leave this introduction here and get on with my round up!
I think I have found a new crafty addiction, yes, another one. Today I went to try needle felting for the first time in a workshop at Scotch Lodge Farm. I am happy to report I came home with a pair of needle felted toadstools that I am very happy with. It is possible that I may have gone home via the craft store to pick up some needle felting supplies, but this is of course just speculation.
You thought I had forgotten didn’t you? It’s ok, I forgive you. It’s been soooooo long since I bought, unboxed, made, reviewed and published a new tail and fins for the Aldi So Crafty crochet shark kit.
Two storm’s in as many weeks. What a great excuse to stay indoors and craft! Our garden fence is rather the worse for wear, having been weakened by Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis managed to finish it off on Sunday morning.
My attempts to be productive and organised are continuing and so far all is going well. As ususal I was busy last week week as usual and I have lots to look forward to this week.
