The Craft Group

craftygroup4

I’ve finally joined a craft group! My super talented neighbour and friend Úna (remember her beautiful books?) invited me a looong time ago to join them but it wasn’t very practical for me with 2 young children. They’re still young, yes, but now I will be able to manage to meet up every second week and do lots of crafts, have a great laugh and enjoy the company of these amazing ladies! It’s so good because all the girls live very close by and every time they meet they rotate the house. I can’t wait to host a meeting in mine!

Per fi m’he afegit a un grup de manualitats! La meva veina-amiga, l’ Una (recordeu els seus llibres fets a ma) em va convidar fa temps pero amb els nens no podia comprometre’m. Ara ja si que ho trobo mes facil el poder escapar-me una nit. Cada dos dimecres ens reunim, rotant la casa cada vegada, i passem una bona estona, fent coses, rient, xerrant i picant. Totes viuen molt a prop, a no mes de 15 minuts en cotxe la que queda mes lluny… Ja tinc ganes de que vinguin a la meva!

Everyone brings their projects along with some yummy stuff to keep you going. I made a tea brack, but after seeing this creamy roulade I could leave the brack aside…

Cadascu porta els seus projectes i alguna cosa per menjar i beure. Vaig fer un tea brack, pero despres de veure aquest braç de gitano, a veure qui es menja el meu brack!

I thought I’d bring my little sashiko coaster that I made a few weeks ago (I’ll post all about it soon) along with a book that I borrowed so they could have a look.

Vaig portar el  posagots de sashiko que vaig fer (del qual ja escriure tot un post), i un llibre que m’han deixat per a que hi fessin una ullada.

In the meantime, I wanted to make some progress on my abandoned LiliPopo Easter Girl. I couldn’t finish it there and then, but I did finish it last night!

I de mentres vaig intentar avançar feina amb el patro de la LiliPopo. No la vaig poder acabar aquella nit pero si que la vaig acabar ahir!

So here’s the final product. I still think I should plan in advance the colours I’ll use though. I’m happy with it, but when you see Kate’s original patterns, they’re so much carefully planned!

Aixi que ja la podeu veure. Crec que hauria de planejar una mica mes be els colors que faig servir, estic contenta amb el reseultat, pero si veiessiu els projectes de la Kate, ja m’entendrieu…

    I think it turned out really cute. Great colors too.

  8. I love your easter girl Irina! And I think the colours you used are great, really I do! You have really got the hang of those french knots…. What do you think you will do with her now? I’ve never tried Sashiko, but a coaster would be a small enough project to start with, I might try that. At one of the sewing circles I go to we eat lots of lovely homemade food too – it’s a wonder we get any sewing done at all🙂 And we laugh more than we sew too!

    • Thank you! I think I might leave it as it is, with the hoop as a frame although I think I’d need to put some backing… About Sashiko, it is really nice and great practice for making even stitches. A Japanese friend is going to Japan this summer and I might ask her to bring me some thread…

    • Thank you! Lilipopo designs are sooooo nice! In fact, I was never really drawn to embroidery but when I saw these patterns I really loved them and I’m enjoying it so much! You should try🙂

    Nena, t’he retrobat…
    Veig que has migrat al wordpress…
    Sóc la Gemma del taller d’hiperactivitat, i del SocPetit… però ara, hem fet un grup de mares-veïnes-bojes de les manualitats, que casulament, ens trobem com vosaltres cada dimecres. A més de xerrar, teixir i riure, tenim la fermesa de publicar 1 entrada cada dimecres de les nostres creacions… i hem fet un nou blog.
    Ara que t’he retrobat, espero no tornar-te a perdre!!!! (tot i que de fet, qui s’havia perdut sóc jo!!!)
