About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Mini Christmas crocheted stockings by Mandy - Free Pattern

These cute little Christmas stockings were made by Mandy.
There was no real pattern to follow so we worked it out easily enough by sharing crochet know how and made little stocking decorations until they were everywhere. Wil and Bev G made a heap!

Here are some pictures and a pattern!

A pentagon granny square folded in half to make a little stocking.

Make them in whatever colour you like!

Add some sparkle :)
or a bell on the toe!
Put a few sweets, a roll of mints or a roll of cold hard cash inside,
hang them on the Christmas tree
and you will be popular.

Card for a Couple by Elly

Elly is friends with a married couple who celebrate their birthdays in the same week.
So, why not make a gorgeous shared card?

Too clever Elly!

Bev G's finished projects

Today we were back at The Craft Group after a bit of a break.
Bev has not been wasting time - she has dusted off a few half finished projects, finished them off and brought them along to our "Show 'n Tell" time. 
You are inspiring Bev!

Here is her finished fabric box we made a few terms ago.

Here is an adorable wool embroidered blanket.


...with cute ducks!


!!! Look at those neat stitches !!!


So pretty!


Bev was given some bibs by Lyn who thought she would probably not get around to them. Bev found some cross stitch patterns in our "Swap Shop" and finished off the bibs.


And while she was at it, she finished her redwork we also did at The Craft Group earlier this year.


Thanks for sharing and inspiring us Bev!
(And thanks for helping out with our morning tea too! 
You are multi-talented and generous.
