So after a fourth night of coughing and spluttering, I am not in the best of moods, however I have decided to share some pretty crafting which happened the other Saturday. Every 6 weeks or so, my church organises a craft day at the church centre and lots of people of all ages come and enjoy painting, drawing, crafting, sewing, really whatever takes your fancy.
Normally my friend Anna performs all the prep however as she is snowed under with lots of work and study, I offered to prepare and organise this one for her. She said ''Yes'' and so 2 Saturdays ago, I had a day with some lovely people sharing our joy of crafting.
We have some exceptional painters in the church, Hazel being one of them. She is currently part of an exhibition, well her paintings are, in the Cathedral. A new attendee was another church goer who is amazing at pen and ink drawing. He drew the most detailed picture of the Well Cathedral music school I have ever seen.
We also had a number of children attend who did some beautiful canvases, some simple, others very detailed. Anna came with her daughter who produced a wonderful piece inspired by Van Gogh's Sunflowers. Anna was completing some lovely cross-stitch but when she puts brush to paper she is also a very talented young woman.
Me, I was so busy watching and chatting, and helping I didn't complete my piece but it includes some collages, stamping and glitter. Watch this space. So here are some pictures of our day, plus the finished book for the hen weekend which realised after posting I hadn't put in..............
