I honestly thought I’d be exhausted today after the weekend, but @lyndascraftroom and I managed to actually relax!! The weekend couldn’t really have gone any better. We also had the most gorgeous guests, including a lady who had travelled all the way from Germany!
We started the Friday evening with a quick ice breaker, then we made our own name badges, purely because we’re so awful at remembering names
I’m lying, I didn’t make mine, lynda made man thankfully! We then handed out everybody’s Sophie’s stool! We were so excited for this
Check that out! A pyramid of Sophie’s stools!! Everyone knew they were getting these, well almost everyone, one lady asked if they had to give it back at the end! Her face when we said no was a picture.
The best bit though was handing out the gift bags, and hearing people gasp with surprise
Yes!! Each weekend person actually got Sophie’s universe book too! We kept this a surprise, but it was lovely to hear, it really was.
After dinner on the Friday evening we started with stools, couple of glasses of bubbly and straight into chill out mode. On Saturday morning we had a few patterns for people to work on using Borge three bears yarn and some lovely Knitcraft Home cotton they had the following patterns:
- Eco face scrubbies
- Love heart wash cloth
- Star pin cushion
- Life ring pin cushion
So there was a good choice. After lunch we had a photographer arrive, Lynda and I never get a chance to take many, we’ve had one picture so far, the rest are being worked on, but I have to tell you about this, it was hilarious
So we threw the blankets in the air, but perhaps we should of moved away from the tree! Yes!! I’m sure there were some photos taken of us trying to get some of the blankets back down!
Anyway, the next bit, the most exciting bit! Amanda Bloom from little box of crochet created The Crochet Sanctuary’s own bespoke little box of crochet!!!!!!!!! Who’s ever of thought a year ago I’d be typing this?????
I learnt to Tunisian crochet!!! Check out my purse
I’m so pleased, and more so pleased that my daughter abby actually learnt to Tunisian crochet too! Amanda also had a little shop, where we were able to buy not so big and little boxes and candles too.
The rest of the time we really spent relaxing crocheting and eating basically!
A few more pics for you
There will be lots of professional ones of people actually crocheting very soon!!
Anyway happy hooking xx
