The last time I saw my knitting friend, Anne, she invited me to join a Coffee Craft and Chat session at her house as part of an “Angel Extravaganza” . We would be knitting and trimming angels with Christmas messages, to be hidden in and around Ellington, Cresswell and Lynemouth.

I arrived at Anne’s today not really knowing what to expect, but found a house full of very busy women, enjoying a well-earned lunch break with tasty homemade soup, scones, cakes and biscuits (timed my arrival perfectly!) I managed to knit an angel, added a pair of spare wings (thanks to Anne’s neighbour, Jude) and had a thorough lovely afternoon. Everyone was great.

The local church had initiated the project locally and distributed patterns earlier in the year .You can find the pattern here The knitters had been making angels ever since and over 500 have now been completed. I wonder where mine will end up?

About me

When I was tiny my mother taught me to sew and and my grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet. I’ve been making things ever since and I love trying out new crafts.

I live in Northumberland (within sight of the sea), with husband, son and labrador. My daughter and my mother both live nearby. We love it here, Sometimes the scenery even inspires my crafting!

There is usually a story behind the things I make and I wanted to share these stories. I hope you enjoy reading them.
