I'm full of tea and cake and I'm knitting - it's lovely!
This was the answer I had from Tina last Wednesday morning when I asked her if she was ok. I've been thinking about it all week and it still makes me smile!
We love making stuff at Halfpenny Home and the rose bag with the bamboo handles is one of my favourite makes at the moment. This is how I get people to cut fabric and learn to thread up a machine. With frequent applications of tea and cake the end result is a lovely handcrafted item of which you can feel very very proud and smug. The next bag class is Saturday 5th June 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm.
Hand-knitted bed socks = luxury for feet! How lovely would it be to knit some socks for someone you love very much? This pair have been in the shop for a while, but I knitted them for my mum so that when she gets back to the UK she will have cosy toes. We are starting a sock class on Friday 4th June 1.30 pm and the following two weeks. We will be knitting a pair of these together and if you would like to join us then please do get in touch for details.
Finally a photo of Button, anyone who has popped in to see us at Halfpenny Home has been introduced to Button and captivated by her and her fluffiness. She is just so lovely and here is also a photo of her when she was just 10 days old and tiny. Isn't she gorgeous? Nicola x
