Crochet at The Eden Workshop

Today was my first class held at The Eden Workshop, nr Penrith in Cumbria.

The work space is on a farm in the beautiful Eden Valley, the views are breathtaking, even in the good old Cumbrian drizzly weather.

Jane  (who you see in the photo with the tray of cups) is the owner and marvellous host.

There was six lovely ladies that attended today's class for beginners crochet, and they all did brilliantly well.  Taking away Granny Squares to continue at home. 

Lunch was included - all home-made and deliciously good.   Leek & Potato soup with Cider Bread  (yeah, cider).

Followed by roast vegetable tart, new potatoes and salad.

Then Tarte Tatin, which I gobbled so quickly because it was quite simply the best pudding I have EVER eaten, that I missed taking a photo  :)  (I think cider might have been in ingredient in this too)

Actually, it was hard work going back to crocheting after all that - a quick jog around the wind swept, grass soaked fields would have been beneficial to wake up all back up!  (Like, coz THAT'S gonna happen!!)

Happy, smiley ladies all showing off their crochet.

Due to demand I will be taking another beginners crochet class on the 9th March, followed by crochet flowers on the 23rd.  You can find the details on The Eden Workshop website.

What a great day.


I would love to hear from you, questions, comments and salutations all welcome.
