I’ve had such a lovely day!!! Crochet brocade crochet group was at 10:30 this morning, we had 2 new people join us which was great!! Although we missed @itchycrochet this week, where were you Amanda! One of our ladies learnt to slip knot, chain and DC in the first week, and she’s been practising rows since then, so I thought I’d see how she got on in rounds, she did fabulous! We then had a lady walk over to join us, and she picked up a hook and yarn and before I knew it the lady who only started three weeks ago was showing her how to crochet! Yayyy!!
Then a lovely elderly lady came over to our table, she reminded me a little of my Granny Muchy, the lady that inspired me to crochet, she initially came over to ask what we were making, then she started to tell us about the items she makes, and how she taught her children, she was one of those ladies that doesn’t mince her words, a spade is a spade (I like that) well before in knew it she was showing us how it’s done!!
Then this afternoon I went over to event city at the Trafford centre, Hobbycraft we’re sponsoring the stitch and sew event, I was impressed by how busy it was! There were some great stands, not much in the way of yarn but there were a few yarn stands.
I stopped off at Blacksheep wools stand and picked up a good bargain! All if these skeins of Aran should of been over £40, mine for £19.99! That’ll do me nicely thank you!!
Now where to hide…….
Now, I did approach a stand, no names mentioned, they were offering items to help make hand made cards, and they had some beautiful cards on display, it was the first stand I approached and I went straight for the cards as they really caught my eye, I was met by a sour faced woman (I’m being extremely polite) who said ‘no, no, no they’re not for sale’ and then stared until I put the card down, I said ‘oh ok, that’s a shame, they’re really lovely’ I went to walk away, when she piped up….’well this is a c-r-a-f-t-f-a-i-r, you’ll find people here will be selling you things to actually make things’ at this point I had my back to her, well I was livid, she spoke to me like I’d not got a scooby about where I was or what I was doing there, so I just turned around and said ‘oh! Really? Silly me!’ My face said it all though, I’m not good at hiding what I’m thinking my face spells it out very clearly 🙈 so we walked around the corner, and would you beleive it!! There was a stand selling fudge! Not the tools to help you make the fudge, but the actual fudge, anyway I’m not one for confrontation (my face is) but if I had bigger balls I’d of bought the cheeky cow a bag! Anyway rant over……
Happy hooking xx
