"Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day," was how I sarcastically or optimistically began the day as I looked out onto an overcast, drizzly, August Friday.
Nonetheless, fine weather is more of a deterrent to us crafters than a spot of rain. Just the two tables worth of us descended on Trago Lounge this morning for a spot of relaxed crafting and delicious coffee.
Speaking of Coffee, she has escaped from the hospital, in actual fact, the whole family has had 6 days respite followed by an amount of to-ing and fro-ing before W could finally be readmitted for round two yesterday. Today Coffee made a short escape and managed to get two meals in Trago before her return to Hama Bead Hell in hospital, she and her Kid B were sewing foam shapes together this morning making up a little bag and a photo frame.
Myself and my Kid B were in attendance. Mini-me was making pom-poms while I started my second 'upcycled' rosette corsage. The first one was adorning Mini-me's headband making a rather delightful fascinator.
There was an amount of crocheting and knitting going on around the group and much drawing and colouring from the additional small people. A lovely buzz to the group today made for a very welcome break from the hum drum of daily life.
Sadly, Sunday sees Vicki's last shifts in Trago. We will all miss her very much but, seeing how good she is with the children makes me sure that she is off to do the right thing. She is off to train as a teacher in Cheltenham, much luck to you Vicki.
Love to you lovely crafters ... see as many of you as can make it next week.
