Most Thursdays I go to a small craft group, I've been going for nearly as long as we've lived in this house, so six years now. The group is made up of a few ladies from our road and occasionally some who are not and we meet up at Jan's house. These lovely ladies are responsible for teaching me to quilt and explore other crafts, it's been great fun learning new skills along the way and they have all become firm friends.
Sometimes we organise set projects such as the Christmas round robin quilt below....
...and we hold craft weekends in our barn. So in essence we like to craft...a lot!
I've never really documented any of the Thursday crafts, well not regularly anyway, so I thought I might do that from now on, a regular Thursday craft post.
I always have ongoing projects, UFO's and I should have a another stab at clearing some, but today I fancied doing something new. Last year at our local quilting and crafting show I bought a few patterns that have sat on a shelf gathering dust..as they do! Time to start doing some.
she's going to be a door stop!
Progress today was sloooow, there was a fair bit of fannying around at first but once I got past that I managed to get a fair bit done before coming home and finishing the appliqueing.
This part is her tummy
all hand appliqued
Right I'm off to get some dinner, it's 7.15pm and I haven't had anything yet!
Back on Jenny Craig for four weeks, the four weeks bought and paid for when in the UK.
This is the last of the JC food I'm having, I want real food!
I didn't even bother getting weighed when I picked it up, I've got my own scales and I'll just do my own thing. JC is good, does work if you are committed, but long time? Nah! If it goes on too long it gets boring and I miss eating all the lovely meat we have in our freezer.
I am going now, see ya next time ♥
