Spring Crafting - New Beginnings

Welcome!

 

Welcome to 2 Coombe Cottages! It's one of a pair of semi-detatched cottages, nestled in the foot of the Mendip hills in the Southwest. We are blessed with beautiful things: huge trees, murmurations of starlings on the Somerset levels, swathes of daffodils, hedges laden with fruit, cows to watch, hills to climb. We've always loved to create, and we hope you enjoy our records of the things we do.


Card-Making on a Rainy Friday

 

On Friday, inspired by some sunny spells on Thursday and thinking forward to Spring and Easter, hoping the persistant grey would shift, we collected together our little boxes of buttons, paper scraps and threads, as well as the big drawer of card-making supplies (and don't forget a saucerful of PVA - it sticks the world together, don't you know?).

A liked the buttons, and played about with greens and yellow to feel springy.

E was drawn to some yellow corrugated card and bird images.


B went for purple, and Easter eggs!


All in all, a satisfying little craft project: sitting around our Laura Ashley table cloth adorned table, paper and glue crowding for space with our tank of frogspawn turning into tadpoles (another post to come!), a rather folorn looking stephanotis and a still-growing-strong windowful of Mother's Day blooms - gyp, carnations and statis. A reminder of all the crafts we used to do together as children - nice to converge and connect.
