Another busy week

Where does the time go? It's Saturday again and I've not held a crochet hook all week. Must put that right soon, I'm getting slight withdrawal symptoms.

But I've still managed some crafty stuff.

The embroidery group I'm a member of have monthly meetings where we sometimes have guest speakers. This month was the very talented Isobel Hall. She is a mixed media artist and uses everyday stuff others would throw away to make amazing objects. They looked and felt like ancient leather and started life as sugar paper, toilet paper, and bubble wrap. She transforms them with paint, wax, inks, glue and stitch, into things like these.

She also had some books for sale, I bought this one, which she kindly signed.

On Thursday I ran a workshop in a local sheltered housing complex making May Flies for an installation by a local artist for c-art. It's a small group but our contribution will be well received, I'm sure.

No crochet for me this week but my Mexican inspired hot stripes blanket has grown. I'm about a third of the way through it. It will have to take a back seat for a while as too much other stuff getting in the way. I've been preparing for night classes at Shap CDC. You just wouldn't believe the amount of paperwork required for 10 hours of class time!

Off to work now to bring in the pennies. Hope you have a great weekend.
