Nail Art comes to town!

Tuesday 9th July was a sweltering 29 degrees C. Everyone who turned up to the group was dressed for the Riviera! 

First of all I would like to showcase two of my finishes. The cot blanket was done using a spare 400g ball of aran left over from another project and was worked on a circular needle. The cover for my sewing machine was done at the sewing class run by Valerie Lennox. The fabric was purchased  from Hobbycraft using vouchers I received from a friend.

Karen completed these amazing Mosaic socks as part of her master plan to teach me the technique.
Her choice of colours works really well and I hope to complete mine sometime before Christmas.

Linda and Elaine went to a class in Damselfly on Great Western Road. The class had been purchased on Groupon and as you can see they were owling with delight as they displayed their new best friends. Linda's owl was named Patch and Elaine's burd was called Ollie. Did you know the collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament?

Since Stephanie retired she has been very busy crafting and enjoying her freedom. Just to prove it, she made these hats for the Shoe Box charity.

A big thank you to Lynn for bringing these goodies along from Hobbycraft. You really have to be quick on your feet if you want to enjoy a freebie.

 I was really impressed when I discovered that Agnes had made this lovely bangle as part of a set of jewellery for a  for a friends wedding. It looks very professional.

The highlight of the evening was Tracy and her Nail Art. What a talented lady! As you can see she brought with her every colour of nail polish under the sun.

Margaret indulged herself with a French manicure.

Norma and Susan were going to T in the Park at the weekend and wanted to be suitably dressed and accessorized for the event.
