Thought I’d have a go at working up a quirky amigurumi for Halloween. Nothing says scary like DK on a 3 mm hook, right? 💀
A friend has been telling me for weeks about how much she’s been enjoying the recent craft classes at the Milk Cafe in Glasgow. It’s a not just a fabulously friendly little cafe with tasty home-cooked food, it’s also a great social enterprise providing a venue for a variety of projects.
They’ve been running craft taster sessions, which obviously is my sort of thing, and this week I was finally able to attend.
I don’t know about other crafters but I find I don’t often have to go looking for projects, I’m lucky enough to have friends who show me ones they think I might find interesting or quirky.
I’ve recently started work at a set of local care homes doing arts & crafts sessions for the residents (more crafts than art to be honest)
Sometimes I shouldn’t be allowed out on my own or more importantly out with a certain friend. Children in sweet shops are more restrained.
This month I started running craft sessions at number of local care homes as a result I have 9 example pieces left over. So that I don’t end up over run with these every month, I’ve decided to sell them to raise money for the Masato Beanies homeless fund.
For each one sold I will donate £1 to the fund and if I clear all 9 will round it up to £10.
