Crafty Morning

Yesterday I got in my little Mini and drove to the lovely georgian town of Easingwold to a wonderful shop called The Olive Branch where upstairs there's a group of ladies who pass the morning away sitting  drinking coffee, eating  biscuits, nattering   and doing  a bit of crafting aswell. 

I was made ever so welcome  and I had a lovely time getting to know everybody,  they were a nice bunch of people, one lady was knitting a blanket for orphan children and another was making tiny blankets for stillborn babies, while Anne was doing a tapestry.

I took along a house I'm sewing  called "wolf cottage" to go with my red riding wolf display

After the class had finished I had a browse in the shops, I bought a tea towel to make into a bag and I'd noticed last time I was there there was a big basket of magazines that you could swap so I took some along and swapped them. 


I saw this bag with "God save our gracious Queen" printed on both sides that I'm going to make into a pair of cushions with some nice trimmings round them,

and I picked up this fairly new green wool blanket for £2 in the oxfam shop, I can see a bag being made out of that aswell, you can never have too many bags can you???


Got this lovely little tin to keep some buttons in, I ate all the chocolate discs straightaway as my buttons couldn't wait to go in, well that's my excuse anyway!!!

Thanks for all your get well wishes after my "episode" last week, the doctor thinks it was probrably just a bug but I've had some tests done to make sure,

bye for now,

Ooh, what a lovely post! I am so envious of your new craft group. I really wish I could find one locally. I went to one at my local library last year but it wasn't very welcoming unfortunately. All of the ladies had been going for years with no newcomers and I don't think they were too pleased to have me tagging along. Plus, they were all 30+ years older than me. I love the tin and the bag. Gorgeous. I'm glad you're better. Xxx
