We were so pleased to be invited to the Hobbycraft Spring/Summer blog event, as even though we both spend lots of time making, it was such a treat to be taught by talented craftspeople. It was a particularly chilly evening and so it was even lovelier stepping into the warm and colourful Drink, Shop & Do (the pic below is taken from their website). I love those tassled lampshades!
I know we still have a bit more winter to come, but I have to say looking at things for Spring Summer was a bit of a pick me up - I love Spring colours and these were all echoed in the glorious yarns, delicious looking cakes and pretty fabrics.
Alie crocheting a daisy, this was such a cute quick craft - I have to say mine went a little off piste, but it had its own charm!

I loved the look of these paints, just my type of colours and I find chalk paint such a satisfying thing to use. So very glad to see that this will be a trend that carries on for next season - dusky moonlight is a lovely paint name too don't you think?
More gorgeously cheery yarn colours.
We made pretty bunny easter bags with the lovely Miss Libby Rose, who was a wonderfully patient teacher - for some reason I didn't get a snap of those, but I will show them here at a later date as I know my girls will love them!
We also made these wonderfully kitsch bunnies - they were so much fun to make! The girls adored them when they saw them in the morning! And I can imagine making them with their friends, as you can stick and create as much as you like - definitely a great option for an Easter craft or party.There were also some great cakes and treats which I will post about soon as I want to try out a few techniques we saw. We had a lovely time and left inspired and itching to get started on some new projects - thanks so much to Hobbycraft for inviting us!
