Nanna (my MIL) turned out to be an excellent crochet teacher, and had me making stars before I was even out of my pj's yesterday. The large white ones were the first ones, then she made me try some finer ones. Once I got the hang of it, crochet was quite relaxing. I think I might make some bunting with the smaller ones.
After a little excursion to the shops yesterday, we finished with a visit to Euro Patissierie........gorgeous cakes which just happened to be two doors away from a patchwork shop! Patissierie and patchwork......a perfect combination. Quilt-Essentials was a lovely shop, lots of fabrics I liked, and very friendly staff. A few little bits of red fabric followed me home.
Today while the boys were fishing, Nanna and I discovered THE BEST markets I have been to in quite some time. The Olive Tree Market at The Junction was fantastic, really wish I hadn't already finished my Christmas shopping. Beautiful handmade goods, superb quality and presentation in a lovely location. Will definitely visit again.
Heading home tomorrow afternoon, and thoughts will turn to Christmas cooking.
