"I have loved every minute of the group and am still amazed at how lucky I was to win the classes. Poor Midi Lady Jane lasted as long as the classes did lol but now I have a new proper size Lady Jane mark 2 on her way. I have found I enjoy sewing and love machining. You dispelled all the horrible experiences I had at school in the sewing class where I hated the machine lol. i will be back for a class at some point xxx Thank you again xxxxx"
Ann was back before she left and will be getting ready to start this month's project, a reversible bag, with her new machine from today. If you would like to come and join us in the club here, or join the All About The Bags Workshop.

I was torn about what to share with you this week from the Get Creative with Loopy group. I loved seeing Rachel's children enjoying creative time, it's such an important part of their growing up. You can read my blog post about crafting with children here.
In the end, I chose this picture from Christine, it just about sums up the weather here this week. I just love it. I'm really looking forward to seeing what people are creating in the week to come.
Blocking or not to block? What is blocking? This is a subject that comes up at regular intervals so I thought I'd share this video that explains about why to block items and how I did it for this little bodice. I'd be interested to know if you block or not? Maybe you are like me and depends on what I'm doing.
What is blocking? Why do you block something?
This week Deramores have announced they have a new yarn in stock, Stylecraft Special Candy Swirl which looks delicious. As well, they are offering 3 for 2 for their own brand yarn, not a bad week to stock up on some yarn.
Hobbycraft have a wide range of products for just £1, great if you're thinking of stocking up for the school holidays.
And lastly, just wanted to share a link that was shared with me in my group this week. I was looking for crocheted flowers and Lor kindly shared this Craftsy link, lots of free patterns to choose from, as well as paid ones. I'm in crocheted flower heaven!
Have a good week and don't forget, I'm always around to help. You can find me in the Get Creative With Loopy group or contact me via the website.
