|Not them but how I remember them as a kid they were very |
groovy, gorgeous and fashionable.
Mostly by their own hand.
Yes they are......... its confirmed they will be spending a week with me to whip me into craftershape and I cant wait.
Who are these matriarchs you may ask? Well, one is Margaret my mother the other is Aunty Glad.
They will be catching The Overland train to Melbourne (they like the train) and then staying with me and the hubby and my house will be transformed into crafting heaven.
I will be receiving instructions from them in crocheting, knitting and sewing for the week.
Im feeling slightly nervous about putting my rather rudimentary skills on the table I mean we are talking serious craftswomen here and some of the best display of skills Ive seen.
My Aunty's crocheting is so intricate and complex, Im hoping that she wont be too frustrated with my beginners luck I did teach myself afterall and I know I dont hold the wool right yet.
As for my Mum she is just plain scary she doesnt use patterns when she sews she doesnt bat an eyelid cutting straight into $100/m fabric. She can sew anything from intricate corsetry to bridal wear. Her knitting is also awe inspiring.
At least shes aware of my crafting limitations.
Many a time we have held each other up as we cried with laughter at one of my 'creations' which she has then remedied into something wearable. But Im hoping my Aunty Glad is going to take me past the granny square stage and attempt an actual crochet pattern.
Im thinking it might be best to have specific projects in mind but all in all I think it will be a week of wool, fabric, needles and hooks and I cant wait!!!!!!
Ill promise to take some pics so you can see pure skill in action (them not me of course!)
