A little sprite

We have been experimenting with some wire and netting wings on sprites.  What do you think? Does it make the wee sprite too fiddly to play with? Less sturdy?  Leave enough to the imagination? More appealing?  Just the right amount of whimsy? Too much bling?

We would love some feedback in the comments. Please share your thoughts. Thank you 🙂

 

 

 

 

Treasure Boxes & Silk Sewing

It was a double week this week, with crafting on Thursday and Friday.  Thursday saw us busily drafting the first two prototype eurythmy silks, with nervous hands cutting and guiding the slippery silk through the machines.

Friday was a day to let our hair down and get those creative ideas flowing at Jill’s place. Thanks Jill!  Treasures of all kinds were made to fit snuggly into recycled wedding boxes.  Here is just a sample of what we crafted.

More little crafts and digit dolls are planned for this Thursday as well as our machine sewing. We would love for you to join us.  If you would like to take one home to do, drop in to collect supplies from 11.00 – 1.00 this Thursday in the new and improved stables.  Or even just join us for a quick cuppa and a stickybeak.

Come and weave a little sunshine in your life.

Let the Magic resume…

Craft group is ready to restart for the year, with a wonderful new space in the 2nd textiles (old stables) room.  We will meet on Thursdays during term time from 11.00am til 1.00pm.  Come and join in the magic of making something for the school or delight your own children by learning a new crafty skill to share.  All are welcome, however due to the new location, we request that you arrange for children not yet at school to be looked after elsewhere during our crafting time.

The Linuwel School Fair is almost here

We are stitching double time to finish all our treasures in time for the fair.  There are sweet little bed sets with pillows and blankets for a favourite doll, more needle felted folk to finish, daring digit dolls with enormous longbows, crochet hairclips and badges and even paper lanterns for tealights to fold.   If you can help out on Friday to finish a seam, set out the display table, or attach our labels and prices, we will be busily working from 9.00 am till after school pick up time to be ready for the big day.  Let Diana or Jill know if you can lend a hand and we will have a cuppa ready to welcome you, no experience necessary.
