A few weeks ago I blogged about a new knitting group called Needles & Natter at Rosie’s Tea Room in Abingdon. It’s not just knitting. There are lots of portable crafts going on. One of the ladies that attends does rag rugging & asked if we’d like a demo and have a go ourselves. Try a new craft?! But of course I’d love to! So I went this morning, armed with a bag full of clothes from my OH’s wardrobe.
Armed with my bodger (yes, a bodger) & hessian and some old t-shirt material I set to work. I don’t think rag rugging will be making an appearance on my Folksy page, but I am thinking about potential Christmas presents (that means you family!) It’s pretty quick and the hessian enables you to keep track of progress, making sure that the lines are straight. The time this morning passed way too quickly and I really enjoyed learning a new skill. It’s another benefit of attending the Needles & Natter group. To learn this kind of skill could cost lots of money, but this didn’t. And I had a lush mug of Italian coffee! Thanks Liz & Dinny! x
