Loobi Hoop!

Hello on this lovely sunny Monday.  I hope you are having a good day.

Yesterday I went to Loobi Crafts in Leighton Buzzard for a Dabble Day with some friends and we made a total of 8 projects.

Anne, Cobnut Crafter was there.  We first met at a Loobi class and it's the first time our paths have crossed since we started following each other.  So it was good to catch up in person again.

We had a lovely lunch and lots of cake and everybody enjoyed the day very much.

Here is one of the cards we made using a new Woodware set called Embroidery Hoop.

I was so tired when I got home I didn't even lift the lid of my laptop so I am again behind with my visits  but will pop in to see what everybody has been up to over the next few days.

I would like to enter my card into the challenge  at Crafting from the Heart #153 (Anything Goes)

Aquarius said...

What a lovely cross stitch card. It amazes me just how tiring it can be attending a crafty workshop - I slept for most of the evening after the last one I went to!! They are always fun though and it sounds as if you enjoyed yourself.

Loving your card Barb. Sounds like you had a good day at the workshop but I can understand you feeling tired as they are often quite intense days but so enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the workshop with Oyster Stamp and may need a couple of early nights before then lol! Nearly forgot to say, lovely card too Lol! Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

The hoop & stitching look so dimensional. This is a new brand to me,and I like it very much! It's good to be tired from fun. You can always catch up later!! We all understand. Hugs & TFS

Cobnut Crafter said...

Hi Barb, It was so lovely to see you again on Sunday and have the chance for a bit of a catch-up, although the crafting was pretty intense and we also needed time to eat all that cake! Like you, I was pretty zapped in the evening. Your card is lovely and your stitching is a lot neater than mine - so I clearly need a bit more practice. Thanks again for sharing a link to my blog. Hope to see you again at the next Dabble Day - or sooner! Anne xx

Jules said...

Hi Barb

What a great card! I love the theme . .. and of course the cross-stitched heart!!

Pleased you had a good and productive day.

I am way behind with catching up with everyone's blogs. Just grabbing a few minutes now before I start cutting a mountain of card for invitations and prepping for making 80 dior bows!

Hope your batteries are now back to being fully charged.

Love Jules xx

Janice said...
