Crafty weekend in our barn...

Hi ya'all, thought you might like to see what me and the crafty ladies from my road got up to this weekend.

Apologies for the link to the blog but it's got a lot of photos etc

Here's one for starters, made from wool blankets and dyed wool blankets (from plain wool blankets)

Oooh, very colourful.

I might just get the sewing machine out today....

Good girl

I wish that our barn was warm enough to have crafty sessions in  

I've been thinking of getting my sewing machine out as well
Seabird

My sewing machine's always out    in fact I've got 3 - one's constantly set up with a jeans needle because I'm frequently asked to turn up jeans  
Can't imagine life without a sewing machine.

Kaz it's still pretty warm here at the moment,  I doubt we'll be using it once winter sets in, unless Joe gets a pot bellied stove put in up there

Seabird I couldn't be without one either, I have 2, my original cheapie which needs a service and my bit more expensive one I bought for quilting, also in need of a service.

I've got some t-towels that I've been collecting, with places on etc, some relevant to us from the UK and some from other travels. I'm thinking I might take them up the  barn today and start making them into a big tablecloth for the outside table. It's one of the thing son my ever growing UFO list.

..........and I thought it meant YOU F--- OFF list.  

My UFO list is fairly long when it comes to other people handing me their shite jobs.

Well it could mean that too I suppose, there have been many times I've said those very words pulling things out of the UFO basket lol.

Perhaps I should set us all a challenge to get some finished!

Briiliant idea.

I will take you up on that challenge this afternoon.

I have 5 cans of Xmas beer, and half a bottle of Homemade blackcurrent schnapps that need finishing.

Consider the job finished by 19.00 this evening.
