I am part of a craft group on face book and I signed up for there swap
Its only a small group that suits me.
I have just sent off my swap for this month.
I made a pin cushion and scissor case, the embroidery was done on my machine
Have to get my thinking cap on for next month now.
Also the group is running a craft challenge, find a new craft to do in the new year
I have decided to have a go at Bavarian Crochet, I have had the book for some time and never got round to trying it, I have looked out some cotton yarn and have my hook at the ready to make a start tonight.
My machine knitting magazine arrived today, its the last issue in my subscription,
I am not re-newing, I enjoy the magazine but decided to try a different magazine
We don't have a UK machine embroidery magazine, I have found two in USA I have set up a short subscription for both of them so I can see which I prefer, they both arrived this week.
I might just do one for a year then switch to the other, I used to stock an Australian one in the shop,
Its a shame we don't have a UK one, but machine embroidery is big business overseas and the market is still small in the UK.
Perhaps one day we might have one.
