crafty creations

Our friends visited for the weekend: 2 adults and 2 children (aged 7 & 9) who all enjoy making things.  Each has their own interest and it's been fun exploring the different activities.

Over the last 2 days we have:

  • knitted... to written patterns and to a secret pattern in his head
  • slow-cooked a beef stew ready for our return from a day's exploring
  • experimented with new drawing techniques at the Pencil Museum
  • bought some (more!) yarn
  • baked lemon drizzle cake
  • shared pattern ideas
  • made a toy car garage from big blocks

I've been blessed by the eager creativity of the youngsters and the way they're learning how to put their ideas into being.  It's so exciting to see traditional crafts being shared with, and enjoyed by, the next generation.  

And I've been honoured to be the only person trusted with the secret design for his project; I'm looking forward to seeing the results!
(so no picture of that project...)
