Canberra Brown Owls - May 2016

So here we are again.  I find myself thinking Brown Owls is only once a month and it's just not enough, yet here I am wondering where has the last month gone!  Hopefully you feel the same way too about Brown Owls!

 So I'm thinking we are only a small bunch (or should I say parliament) of owls this Saturday, so feeling cold with this weather we're having I went searching on my Entertainment app and found Oliver Brown in Dickson.  Sounds like the perfect place for a Autumn/Winter crafternoon!

So no set project this Saturday.  Thought it would be the perfect chance to catch up on some of your projects from previous months or something new you just wanted to try.  Although if you need inspiration - try these xx

It's a wrap - April 2016

So I'm much more on the ball this month, and am sharing our April meet up the very next day!  And even if it is now May, it's ok as we met up on April 30 at the gorgeous surrounds of the National Arboretum right here in Canberra!

This month we were inspired by Mollie Makes issue 24 featuring the cute little crochet flowers that were featured on the cover of the Mollie Makes magazine.  With a little bit of learning stitches, UK terms versus US terms, picking colours and hooks we were set!

Lots of chatting and coffee too xx
So another great afternoon.  We meet the last Saturday of the month.  So stay tuned for our May meet up.  Keep up with all our news over at our Canberra Brown Owls Facebook page.

It's a wrap - March 2016

So, just over a month late in sharing our projects from our meet up in March.  Where did that time go?

So we decided to go for a Mollie Makes - Easter theme and we made cute little Easter Egg Cup Pin Cushions.  What a fun idea that was!  We were inspired by the gorgeousness of the Atta Girl Says project featuring these cute as pin cushions.  Click on this link for all the project inspiration and details. 

So here's some of our cute makes of our day at the Magpies Club, Kippax.

Cuteness in the making xx

Definitely a fun little project and a great way to use some of your egg cups, that have been sitting in the back of your cupboards for a while!
