Finally back to crafting!
Feels like ages since I’ve been in the studio and it was nice to be back making. I’d spent two weekends on a paediatric first aid course which was essential to my usual job and actually interesting and fun!
In the studio I had a good clear up and felt better for it. I wrestled with my sewing machine trying to complete a piece of embroidery on some water dissolvable fabric. I decided to put it aside for a while because it was too annoying!
I also started on another Frida’s Flowers crochet block and that at least was ok. Not sure I’m going to finish the blanket for this Winter though!
We continued with some crochet on Wednesday night’s crafty class for adults and also got out a few other projects to finish off. Children’s class on Saturday was all about making Father’s Day gifts and we decoupaged some mobile phone stands which looked great when finished.
To add to the arty mix of the week, I went to the private view of the Peter Randall Page exhibition at The Gibbard Gallery in Harlow. It was really excellent and the sculptures were beautiful.
