The Craft Bug in Chirk


On one of my weekend jaunts up to visit Mum I had a few minutes to spare in Chirk and thought I’d pop into The Craft Bug, which I thought was a tiny little crafting shop. It turns out that it’s a little cavern jam packed with goodies. The girl manning the shop offered me a coffee the minute I walked in, which was a really nice touch. The back room has a crafting area where they hold classes and crafting groups regularly. I loved it.

Find them at 23 West View, Chirk, LL14 5HL. They also sell online – click the image at the top to check it out for yourself.

Patchwork Bedspread (and an explanation)

My life has been without crafting for some time now – has it reached ten weeks yet? It’s no secret that September is always busy for me, as a sixth form tutor with UCAS references to battle with, but this autumn half term has been exceptional. Upon returning from South Africa I managed two days at work before Mum was taken into hospital. I fetched her out this Saturday after travelling between North Wales and London every weekend for seven weeks. No time for crafting in that schedule – sorry!

Nan turned 88 last week (don’t tell her that I publicised that fact) so I did manage to squeeze one small project in during the week before. Dad chose the fabrics from my collection and I made this patchwork bedspread for her. She tells me that she is not intending to use it as a bedspread though; this piece is destined to keep her knees warm this winter!
