To start with today I’d like to show you the gorgeous work of three friends who came together to form Naas Handcrafters.
Ruth Teskey (Tel 087 2604946 email@example.com) created -
Beautiful crocheted hats.
and fab jewellery. I thought these necklaces were stunning in the beautiful colours Ruth had used and she actually crocheted the wire in making the necklaces.
Deirdre Mellon (087 1273122 firstname.lastname@example.org) created -
A beautiful soft scarf in such a yummy colour.
Wonderful crocheted and knitted bags which were felted.
Sharon Spendlove (Tel 086 6067726 email@example.com) created -
A gorgeous floral scarf
Lovely soft cosy scarves and cowls
Now it’s time to move on to some patchwork. I spent ages and ages looking at Mary McCann’s (Tel 086 2470285 firstname.lastname@example.org) fabulous quilts. Mary teaches patchwork and I’d say it would be wonderful to attend her classes.
Mary and her daughter Gina
Feast your eyes on these beauties
This is a log cabin quilt that Gina is working on at the moment. If you click to enlarge the picture you'll see that she has placed a little sheep at the centre of each block - so cute! I love her fabric choices with the mix of pine cones, little hens and bees.
I tried to get around to take photos of as many stands as I could but unfortunately didn't get photos of three of them - felting, bog oak and knitting. If anyone else has taken photo of these, I'll add them at a later stage. Of course I forgot to take photos of my own stand but sure you know the kind of things I make anyway! I had hoped to do some knitted pieces and some fabric ornaments but I just ran out of time. In the end I made cards, gift tags, corner bookmarks, gift boxes and packages of magic reindeer food (my best seller, lol!). If I get a chance I'll take photos of some of what's left but it mightn't be anytime soon - I've to try and catch up with getting my Christmas shopping done!
