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?

I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.
