We had a lorra lorra laffs at the crafty club this morning, all were all in fine fettle, I'm sure we must have been heard along the length of the High Street. Folks must wonder what the crafty ladies are getting up to. We never stop nattering the whole time we are there. Such an entertaining lot.
We also pick up new ideas, the ladies have such a diverse range of crafty talent and like to share. Here is one I thought I would pass on to you. I am going to have a go at this. Stretch a piece of netting from a fruit bag over a piece of plain fabric, and clamp them down tightly in one of those wooden ring things. Then proceed to use the grid as a guide and embroider inside the squares. Lots of crisscross star shapes in the same colour are pretty.
Then when the piece is finished you can turn it into something small like a scissor case.
Another member brought in two bookmarks that she has made. Some delicate cross stitching here. She has put a red backing onto them. I love these colourful designs.
