the craft group in Quorn is called Chester's free range Chook's , It was a quitting group to start with but over the years we have diversifier into any craft . This year we were given a name of who we had to buy a christmas gift for. I got Ruth which I was so happy about because she is into beading just like me so what to get here was easy , a mix of beads and charms. Roz got me and did I get lucky , she gave me this amazing pashmina and a kit to make a lovely needle case.
I decided to make every one of the girls a christmas beaded bauble. The only problem was I only had the idea on Thursday morning while we were shopping . I had to make 10 by Friday at 10 am . I got 7 made by getting out of bed at 6.30 . Having a quick shower and get breakfast and then get into beading again. The two I was short I made last night and will give the two ladies who missed out at Wednesday craft . I also brought so cheap christmas crackers , opened one end and put in a beaded scissor charm and a fantail toffee in each.
