  • Learning something new

    Last night I signed up for a course in 'historical needlework'. I have decided to hang up the tap shoes for a little while and try something new! So, in this course I will learn a bit of history relating to crafts, things that Jane Austen would have done/written about, Victorian stuff etc. Last night I also found out that it won't all be needlework, as cardmaking was also mentioned. Should be a nice varied course. Expect me to be posting photos of my creations!! I don't know if I'll have a go at patchwork or ragrugging or something completely different. All I have to do now is cross my fingers that another 5 people sign up to make sure it actually runs!

        I've got a couple of weeks before it starts. First night is history and a bit of sewing and then we get a list of useful things we would need to take with us and I will then be rummaging around to see if I can find any needles/thread/whatever else may be needed!

          How fun!! Coincidentally, I just got a movie from Netflix called Becoming Jane - about Jane Austen.

          I sure hope you get another 5 "signers on!" It sounds like fun.

            How far back are they taking you?
            I'll pick your brains if it's Viking. You can pick mine if it's Elizabethan and Jacobean.
            Sounds fascinating.

              That sounds great.

              A bit of history and crafting all rolled into one, fab.

                Always nice to learn a new skill. All my crafting friends have tried a variety of disciplines over the years, some settling on one and others dabbling in many. Hope you get the numbers you need to get going. Look forward to hearing reports of your progress.

                  The trouble is I always told myself I shouldn't dabble in any other crafts as I don't have the space to store all the stuff and here I am dabbling. I'm half hoping I can use some of the stuff I already have squirrelled away so it actually gets used rather than sitting in some dark corner of a box being forgotten about.
