WOYWW

Good morning all - my own desk is empty today - I am having twinnie time at Annie's.

So, I thought I would share my friend's new work space with you.......





Jacquie has set up a great little crafty spot on the first floor of a local village shop.
She is going to be holding all sorts of needlework workshops including bag making, patchwork and basic sewing classes. Her buddy Caroline will be helping too.

You might remember the fab bags that Annie and I made - well Jacquie was the lovely lady who invited us to her house so that she could take a practice workshop and show us how to make the bags.
I am sure she will be very successful.

Her workspace in the shop is beautifully set up with lots of materials and haberdashery on hand for purchase. She has a cutting table and a sewing table where her machine is set up and where others can take their machines along to sew too.
On the far wall is a fab display of patchwork/quilted bags and other items - I can even spot one of my draught excluders there too!

If any of my local blog buddies want to find out more then just pop into "Connections" on the Main Road in Pontesbury (about 7 miles from Shrewsbury) on Thurs, Fri or Sat and have a chat to Jacquie.
She is a really cheery person with a great sense of humour so I am sure you would find a good welcome.

Have a happy Wednesday everyone - I will try and join in Julia's blog hop later in the week once my twinnie duties are sorted!

Oh, that does look inviting, Jo. Those lovely patchwork pieces are fabulous - and your draught excluder is fabulous too. Wish I lived close enough to attend some of the workshops Jacquie will be running.

Have a wonderful day with Annie and the twins. Hugs, Elizabeth x #55

All the best to Jacquie as she starts her shop. It does look like a very happy place to be. If I were on that side of the globe, I would pop in for sure. The bags look so amazing. Nothing better than supporting a friend! Winnie#79

Well, that looks an inviting space to go and craft in!! Shame you're 3 hours away!!
I made the cowl pattern so it's very simple.
Chain 14
Basically you're doing a treble in every other chain for first row and then chain in the spaces for the others. Keep going until its the length to wrap around twice and crochet the two ends together. That's it! Simples
