Last week lovely bestie C came back after a long trip in the US…. I was very pleased to catch up over a gorgeous Indian meal to celebrate my new job… Yums!
And he brought presents too!
A gorgeous bunny tile (that’s been added to the group of lovely things on the lounge wall), a letter press card of an heirloom tomato soup recipe (to be framed and hung in the kitchen) and this gorgeous handspun alpaca yarn
Huge apologies (again!) but this weeks Clothmonkey Crochet Club is cancelled… I’ve just heard that there is an event at Outlaws Yacht Club this Thurs (a Q&A with Alan McGee £5 admission – sounds interesting if you’re about)… so we’ll take a break this week and return on Thursday 4th April at 7pm. Outlaws Yacht Club, 38 New York Street, Leeds, LS2 7DY
Hope to see you there
After a little (unexpected) break the Clothmonkey Crochet Club returns
On Thursday 21st March (and every fortnight) from 7pm at Outlaws Yacht Club, 38 New York St, Leeds.
Lovely cakes, drinks, stew and soup available at the bar and crochet learning and sharing and a good natter all here too :)
£3 or £8 with a beginners pack….
Come down and join us :)
So it’s been a bit of an emotional roller coaster over the past couple of weeks… I had a job interview that I was sure I’d messed up (so I was really fed up for a few days)… but I found out that I got the job!!! Yay!
I’m so pleased :) and I start on Tuesday coordinating an independent advocacy service… part time whilst I work out my notice at my existing job….. So it’s going to busy few weeks to come!
And I had cancelled a crochet club to prepare for the interview :/ thankfully it was worth it!
And I had a lovely time celebrating birthdays this weekend…
Not much time for crochet recently… but very exciting though :)
I had intended to make lots of motifs to use in a proper piece of Irish crochet lace…. but I think I got impatient or something and this happened instead…
…. a brooch with a vintage jet button centre!
I really like it I think… and it might look nice on my little summer jacket.
So I’ll start again making motifs… I think I’ll aim for a cushion cover this time and see what happens :)
