Today I want to share some craft items I made on Tuesday evening at our “Mums Night In!”
At our church toddler group we organise a few social evenings during the year for the parents. grandparents and carers who attend the group.
Sometimes we go out for a meal, but one of the most popular nights we have are the “Mum’s Night In”. We all come (without the kids!) down to the church, order in a Chinese Take-away and bring along desserts.
Those of us who are into craft stuff, or just have lots of craft supplies (!) bring along our stash and our tools, and we buy some additional supplies too.
We then have a general “free-for-all” craft time, when anyone can make a card, a necklace, try a new craft, or demonstrate something for others to try.
Here are my “creations” from that evening.
I updated my mobile phone charm with some new square beads in these lovely spring shades of pinks and greens.
I had a go at knitting with wire, then used Friendly Plastic for the first time to make this – I think I will use it as a card topper, but you could attach it to a candle, make it into a broach, or even put it in a tiny frame.
Finally, I decorated a simple white candle with some ribbon and a button, to match the decor at the holiday cottage.
Here are a few more photos from the evening. There is plenty of chat and laughter, and then some delicious home-made desserts. Recipes are often shared afterwards, and if there are any leftovers, we bring them along to Toddler group the next day.
It suits us as it is informal and relaxed, if you are not really into craft there is no pressure, but most have a go at something.
Do you ever meet up with others to socialise and do some craft? If so, please share.
Posting this as my Show and Tell for friday as tomorrow the kitchen makeover starts, and if all goes according to plan (!) I will next post from our holiday cottage.

Take care until then.
