Every month I meet up with a group fo friends in the evening for Craft Group. We all bring along something we are working on – this has included knitting, crochet, sewing on brownie badges, willow weaving, writing, anything at all – and we sit around a kitchen table with a cup of tea or glass of wine and catch up with what is going on on Frugal Hill.
I used to knit a long time ago, but dropped it as a hobby when Edie and Bee came along. Going along to Craft Group has got me back into it. At the moment I’m making a cushion. As you can see from the picture below, the pattern is quite complicated.
The pattern is actually a bit too difficult for me but I’ve kept going and have nearly finished the first side. Luckily the back is plain! I had the idea that I would make everyone cushions for Christmas, but my progress has been a litle too slow, so I’m just doing this for fun.
Taking time out to rediscover a craft and catching up with friends is what living a rich life is all about for me and it’s an integral part of the Frugal Hill Way. What crafts do you enjoy?
Until next time, Tawney.
