After a lovely and eventful week off (well 5 days because I couldn’t stop myself from working) I feel refreshed and organised. All the accounts are up to dste, and plans for out “Home made Christmas” are underway.
Sorry to mention the “c” word, but if we’re going to make a majority of our gifts this year. We need to make a start.
On Monday we had some great new sewers in. Molly 5, Olivia 10 and Grandma Ellen. After mastering the sewing machine they made cushion cover and stuffed hanging love hearts.
Sherie was next in, she brought THE MOST amazing chocolate cakes, unfortunately they all had gone before I could get a picture. Anyway Sherie had never sewn before, but wanted to make cushions for her Kitchen sofa, and just look how well they turned out.
Monday Evening we had a meeting about our Woman Stanley exhibition piece. We put the wheels in motion and have made a great start on it. It was a lovely atmosphere. Creative women at there best. Baby Connie Dolly was pasted around for cuddles and was a charming as ever.
Cake and Craft was the busiest its ever been, both spaces being used to capacity. Great to see so many crafters getting together socialising and doing what we love.
Tuesday saw a new daytime Garment making class and the 5th class of the evening block, its great to see peoples confidence grow and we have some great garments coming together.
We also got some cool new recycled shelving fo our fabric.
Wednesday was a quiet day, and I think with the school holidays Babies cake and craft will be quiet, but lets see how it goes. Although we now have a new time of 11-1pm. this may be a little easier.
Thursday we had patchwork. some great pieces were made, Margaret had only used a sewing machine at school so after a quick refresher, she was off and made the beauty.
Vee had an embroidery commission. Remember the knitting girls? Well they are off on a hen weekend and are going in fancy dress as the Stepford Wives. Roller and all.
So there is no confusion it’s now embroidered on there pennies.
We we also have a great new groupon deal, on beginners crochet. Usually £40 now £24, but we would love you to book direct and get the same great deal.
Well that’s all for now.
TTFN love linsey #TEAMDOLLY
