And that is when I realised that I was probably not alone in that thinking. And thus, our weekly fibre arts group was born.
The wonderful flyer I made, but never printed out and distributed. Despite that, we've still had a great turnout each week!
We meet at our local coffee pub, The Froth Cafe, enjoy delicious hot drinks and goodies;
And just sit, knitting;
And gossiping; enjoying the company of other like-minds, and relishing in the fact that we are slowly completing the gifts on our lists.
We have a variety of ages, women from various stages in life: students, mothers, grandmothers; yet we all have a common interest in creating works of art with just needles and yarn. It's a chance to relax, recharge, and to just enjoy being in a great environment with great food.
At this point, Chris needs a special mention. Each Friday night he keeps the boys safe at home for three hours, instead of going out with the guys, as I get to escape to my fibre sanctuary. Thanks hun, and remember, Christmas is almost here!
