Craft Group tonight!

Craft group is on again tonight, 7:30pm at the Post Office Hotel.  See you there! Bring a friend or 2, the more the merrier.  Knit, sew, create, mend - plus you can have a glass of wine or cup of coffee at the same time!  Or if you are hungry or ran out the door without dinner - you can order yummy turkish food from Antalya across the road.

If you like knitting - take a trip to the Yarn Barn -  in Reynard St. Coburg, an Aladdin's cave of wool in every colour of the rainbow - and more!

"Stitch 'n'Bitch" , "Sew & Glow" whatever you like to call it - Craft group is on TOMORROW night, 12 May at the POST OFFICE pub, corner Reynard St. and Sydney Rd. , 7:30-9:30pm.  I have booked the big "boardroom" table for our first try at the pub.   We had a High School for Coburg meeting there a few weeks back, and it is a HUGE table.  
There have been some major renovations  at the Post Office and it is looking really good, with the kitchen due to open very soon. In the mean time you can order meals from the wonderful turkish restaurant Antalya across the road, and they will deliver to the pub!  There is also a portable wood fired oven on a trailer (I kid you not, we drove past it last week!) parked out the back on Thursday - Saturday nights for wood fired pizzas.  So pack up some portable craft and come along tomorrow night!  See you there!

Babushka Jeans bag

Here is the bag I made from the Babushka fabric from Spotlight, and pair of old jeans from the op shop.  Apologies for the rather dark photo, I thought I would try out the inbuilt camera on the computer, but it is hard to get the angle and lighting right.  If nothing else, doing this will make me have to learn how to use the digital camera, iphoto and so on!

Craft from Christmas last year - using instructions from the wonderful "Australian Home Sewn" magazine, I made up a pile of notebook covers for gifts for friends and family.  The hardest part was choosing the colours and trims to suit each person!
