Yesterday saw the second meeting of the Needlecraft Group with a really good turnout of 15 people all armed with varying needles and bits of yarn... we had patchwork, knitting, crochet and even trouser mending.
Quite a few of us had a go at needle-felting - the steady sound of needles being prodded into wool was very therapeutic! Gretchen had thoughtfully provided small hessian bags which then had a sponge put inside them for felting - otherwise you stab the table...
She also provided wool and needles, and look what our creative residents came up with:
Maria had also brought wool from her dog (yes, dog) Luna - a nice hairy Leonberger. This was similarly needle-felted using cookie cutters to make the shapes - including Christmas decorations!
Justine had brought along her 'nearly finished' advent calendar which has little pockets for daily treats. OK, we're thinking 'chocolate' here...
If you fancy joining us at a needlecraft group, the next one will be on Monday 10th December from 2pm - 4pm. We're going to have a go at crochet!
