The hubby has a craft! The last few times we've been down to Hobby Craft he has been gazing longingly at the Quilling sets. (wanna know what quilling is??) To be honest - and I've said this to him - I really didn't think he would have the patience for quilling but he's kept on coming back to it saying he's really really like to give it a a go. So I bought him a beginners set (at a rip off price of over £30, only to find it for £20 on ebay after, grrrrr), and I have been prooved wrong!
Have a look at these lovely, delicate, detailed snowflakes!
So now our evenings are spent with us crafting together! Which is really nice as it happens, although it SOUNDS very middle aged (although, I'm now 30something and he'll be 40 next year, so maybe we ARE middle aged) and gives us a whole new topic of conversation (much needed since neither of us are venturing out to work at the moment, and we share 24 hours of the every). He longer rolls his eyes every time I want to show off the latest little thing I've made because he's doing the same to me now :oD
He used up all his white paper within the first few days so I ordered him 4 packs of papers as a treat, and some dried lavender for myself. Thanks to the bank holiday we only got them today and we've been hopping up and down since I placed the order. Typical that his would come on the day he's off out for the evening, but for me that means I can get the sewing machine out without the vibrations knocking his hands. In fact, since I have got the kids fed, washed and tucked into bed... I think I'll make a start!
