I learned a new craft mini giveaway


After the fun I had with the knitting group in Brussels, I joined a local craft group Granny Green’s Big Night Out. Once a month, they do a workshop, and the first one I went to was embroidery taught by Deborah. And I made this little umbrellaey embroidery hoop thing. Embroidery is probably not something I’m going to get into permanently, but it’s always great to learn a new skill, and it’s good to know how to make these hoops – they make great gifts!

And a propos nothing, I’ve decided to give the hoop art away! Just a quick mini giveaway – just leave a comment telling me what your next weekend.

    It’s a lovely piece of embroidery, I admire your passion for learning new skills! I don’t really have a favourite craft, but I’d love to improve my knitting skills at one point. I love crochet and I do a bit of sewing every now and then but I’m not an expert!

    I’m happy to see that both my children love crafting – I even got my boy to do some crochet a while ago!

    I like to knit. Before I got older and my eyes got worse I used to do embroidery.
