Felt Bunting Workshop for Hens

The hens from around the country arranged to meet in The Peak District for the weekend.  They had the great idea of  making colourful bunting to decorate their wedding venue.

Laying out the brightly coloured fibres.

Can you spot the bride to be?
Lots of laughs, tea & cake.

Stringing up assorted  flags.

Hey presto!  This string is a house-warming gift.

Thank you for asking me to run your hen workshop.  It was a blast!  I hope you had a fantastic wedding and the venue looked amazing. 

Herdwicks, Gingerbread & Crochet

On our trip to the Lake District we loved seeing the Herdwick sheep on the fells, with their distinctive grey bodies and happy white faces.  Needless to say, I was very excited to stumble across the Herdy shop in Grasmere and couldn't resist a couple of purchases.  The next stop was the tiny gingerbread shop for yummy supplies to keep us going on our walk up to the tarn.

The next day it was bucketing it down, so the perfect excuse to stay in all day (guilt free) and crochet together my woven squares to construct my wool blanket.

Really pleased with the result, especially as I'm a complete crocheting novice.  Hope you like it too :-)
