Headless Chuck!

Standard

I will be brief! Last night I had a phone call to ask could I help out and do a craft cruise to CANADA NEXT SATURDAY!! Could I help? Of course I could!

In the meantime I’ve got to:

Take 2 Grandchildren on a bucket and spade holiday to a caravan.

Write the craft programme.

Sort out all the craft supplies.

Dream up a couple of extra ideas for alternative classes.

Make some samples ( always practice, always be ahead of the student)

Pack a suitcase for next week.

Pack a suitcase for the cruise.

Get myself to Liverpool to pick up the cruise.

Sign and return contracts.

So I’m very sorry but no time to blog, no WIFI next week, probably no WIFI on the ship.

But, Hey! Canada here I come!

Pin Cushion

Standard

In my previous post I included a pin cushion in the photograph. I had a few comments as to how cute it looked! It’s amazing how someone can pick up on a random item that actually means so much to me! This pin cushion was bought in Alaska by my Mum at least ten years ago. Mum and Dad travelled extensively before Dad died and Mum always brought back souvenirs. ( I know where I get my wander lust from!)

This pin cushion is made up of six Eskimos who seem to be cuddling in a circle! They do look rather startled! They each have fur hoods, chubby bottoms and furry feet! So cute! I hope to travel to Canada and Alaska one day. I do have a long list of hopeful destinations.travel,

I am progressing VERY slowly with the skirt mentioned in the previous post, but maybe it will become a finished item in the near future.

By the way, the tablecloth in the picture was made by myself a few years ago. I used a remnant from Aberkhan Fabrics and just hemmed the four sides. Job done.
