Craft Camp was a welcome respite from The Current Crazy. I finished my Liberty dress (above), made two Schoolhouse Tunics (one black pinstripe which I am wearing as I blog at you, do you like it?, one in a navy Japanese kimono fabric), a pair of navy linen pants and a black and white check skirt to wear to an interview the following week. (It did not bring me success). I also hemmed several skirts that had been languishing in the mending basket for months, did a bit of knitting, and made quince and apple crumble. Magda drew. Jan joined us on the final day and dazzled us. Literally. Amelia quilted, Caroline sewed pj pants, a dress and bunting, Jenny did amazing things with wool and felt, Janet sewed clothes and refashioned a bag of jumpers, Kate made gorgeous drapey clothes fit for a Greek Goddess/Roman princess and Sue crafted her usual amazing tailored jackets and skirts. It was rather misty and damp. Until the sun appeared on the Sunday. Appropriately. I forgot to pack my camera so have only an iPhone photographic record. Some of it quite blurry, but fun. There was quite a lot of cream. Cream Camp, really. All round fabulous.
