This would be an amazing world tour – probably something that WezWanders would head off on! Can I go too? Traveling to that many places would be amazing! Problem is I don’t have the money and I have a family to look after here – I guess for now my passport will just have to stay in it’s safe place.
Yesterday, I finally had a play with the Vine App – I’m not entirely convinced that it is worth the space on my phone (especially given the issues that have been had with it’s start up) but it was worth a try and was kind of fun. On the iPhone app there isn’t sound but when you look it up on the internet there is sound. I tried to post the video but I can’t work it out so here’s a link.
We laid all the squares on the floor to decide what pattern to assemble them in. I then started in one corner walking through how to crochet the squares together while my friend started the other side – that way I could teach her by showing her but rather than doing it on my own work I was helping her. I did six of the twelve squares and then sewed in all the end while she did the other six. I headed home and about 20 minutes later or so I got a picture of the finished article. I am so proud of her!
We also got talking about our lives growing up and also crafts and how they play in our lives. My mum taught me to sew, knit and crochet when I was growing up. Crochet and knitting didn’t stick with me at first and actually crochet only finally stuck with me in the last year or so when Mum went through it with me again (very slowly!). Now I’m teaching people but what changed things in 10-15 years. I have lots of ideas but I think that’s for another post. What do you think? How has our lives changed that makes us want to make things now rather than buy them if we can?
