CRAFT SWISH 2
This afternoon, I took my very tired body to Lewisham, but I had to go, as it was a craft swish, hosted by my freind Hazel.
I took sum craft magazines, patterns, yarns, Brittany double pointed needles, plus food, as my contribution.
I was the first one there, and on her reception room floor, were 5, 50g balls hot pink, merino & cashmere wool, by Debbie Bliss! I wasn’t allowed to take yet, but I definately had my eyes on it!
As others turned up with their stash offerings, Hazel’s blanketed floor, was filling up with yarns, wools, fabrics, also some very lovely reels of ribbons, porcelain beads & bling, belt buckles!
After enjoying the amazing pumpkin & chilli soup, breads, fruit, hand made gluten free cake & of course, wine, we we allotted numbers. In turn, each person would choose 1 item from the stash, and after we all had our turn, (of course I took the Debbie Bliss!), it was a free for all!
Anything that was left over, will be taken by Hazel, to her childrens’ school, so nothing is wasted.
I had a great time, and it was good to see my knitting & crochet friends, who belong to the Pins ‘n’ Needles Knitting & Crochet Group. They meet every Wednesday from 8pm in the Fox & Firkin Pub in Lewisham. Feel free to join them. They also do a clothes swish, too.
Here are some pics of what I got.
