Bit late with my advent blogging…. but on Thursday was my crafty evening at the amazing Outlaws Yacht Club in Leeds…..
Oulaws is a great, chilled place for socialising….. they have a knitting club, vegetarian running club :), exhibitions, super nice styling, lots of games, a kids graffiti wall, a magic till…. as well as lovely food, cake, bar and lots of good music…. all round win…..
So we set ourselves up in a corner and got crafting….
it was a nice mix of some of my friends who’ve been interested in having a crafty night together and a great chance to meet new people too….
I’d wondered about doing set tutorials on things… but decided instead to take a few things for inspiration and just let everyone get on with it…. an all you can craft buffet! :)
We made pompoms using our fingers….
an easy way of making pompoms that I’d forgotten about until recently…. and lots of little creature decorations appeared :)
We stitched padded decorations….
We made gift tags… the lovely K got all her gift tagging done Christmas….
Lovely bestie C was representing man-craft :)….
with a Christmas card tag for Outlaw’s :)
We had gorgeous soup…..
a few drinks and a good old natter….
and I booked in for two crochet nights and another craft buffet next month… whoop!
Good times! and a really nice way to start the holiday :)
