I had a good day at work Saturday with a chill out evening in front of the box with the rugby, The Voice and the return of Ant and Dec. Sad but true. Followed by a very chilled out Sunday, reading, walking and dinner out. Not very exciting to share but very relaxing.
Today I've been teaching on a one to one basis locally working with paper and card....which is unusual at the moment as I seem to be using every medium but at home. I certainly enjoyed my day and it reminded me of something Ken said on Facebook last week about crafting..it went along the lines of sharing a craft is what is great about it. The joy of seeing another person enjoying crafting and the rewards it brings, to me is what life is all about. I'd like to say sharing the love but it would be more apt to say sharing the obsession! (My crafting buddies know exactly what I mean, don't you?!)
Nowadays far to much time is spent busy working and running around after family, making ends meet etc.....usually through necessity...sometimes we forget to make time for fun, time to do something we enjoy. Everyone needs just a little bit of fun time and crafting with friends is so much better than doing it alone.
Talking about crafting with friends, here is the cushion I made last week when Irene came over to craft.
I love this effect too. You layer up 3 extra squares of material and sewing in intervals then cut with scissors between the stitching. It gives a chenille effect.
Can you believe I took all the photographs at the same time and look at the difference of the colours....mmm the cushion is teal blue and cream.
That's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow with more crafty makes....what will it be?!
Enjoy the coming week and make time to do something you enjoy. x
