Monday Morning, December 15, 2014

Today is the last day of craft group in 2014. We decided to get together this morning for a “farewell to 2014 party” plus to make Broomstick lace crochet!!! Everyone brought treats and huddled inside the small storage room behind The Company of Angels school store. Christine Newell and her mother Audrey showed the craft group how to crochet infinity cowl, scarf, beannie and other knitted or crochet projects.

Christine prepared supplies for us.

Broomstick Lace Crochet, also known as jiffy lace and peacock eye crochet, is a historic crochet technique from the 19th century which is traditionally done using a broomstick!  They make for lively party conversations and lovely handmade gifts. Below is our lovely 9 year old Katia modeling Christine’s handmade broomstick lace beanie and infinity cowl.

Correct me if I am wrong, I think Audrey made this one…

The storage room at the back of The Company of Angels school store was lively and warm, but soon it got too crowded, I decided to sit outside in the Company of Angels store garden as the sun came up.

As I was crafting, Anicka and Katia rummaged through my craft box and asked me to make dolls with them. This is what I made with the children with the little time we had in the end of the morning.
