March workshop

It was good to welcome Jackie Cardy to a workshop again. It seems ages since she was last with us. Sadly 4 members were ill and unable to attend. However the rest of us had a splendid day. Jackie had suggested that we make a piece of felt and also colour brown paper in readiness for the day.She had also given an indication of inspirational materials.


I went along with two possible ideas and had decided that I would work in the pink/purple range. I have given up using colours that I don't like.

We put our design onto a thin tear able background and then stitched it onto our felt.Several outlined edges later we began to put in details and embellishment.


Lesley had managed to send soup and rolls , even though she was in Canada plus puddings by Clare and Judith and we were ready to start again.014015016

I glanced at my watch and it was after 3.30 so we had to begin tidying up.We had the usual show and tell . I was amazed , firstly about the amount of work managed by some of our members and as always, the range of work produced from the same basic idea.

I'm sure everyone really enjoyed the day and I feel convinced that we will see the finished pieces very soon. Thank you Jackie.

Reminder that there will be a play day on Sat 25th May at Bank Top. Heat treatments etc. Bring along your bits and inspirations and we will swap!!! FREE
