Time Flies

Time certainly does fly and I can't believe it's a couple of weeks again since I posted on here!

In my defence, I have been very busy at my studio at Hylands with Andrea Neale, our silver clay specialist. We have been hanging images of our work in the stairwell for Craft and Design month.  The artists at the Stables Visitor Centre take it in turns to display their work on the walls but as our items are small and do not always lend themselves to display in a frame, we decided the share the space.  So I have taken photos of my handmade felt necklaces and brooches and hoped for the best. Sorry about the flash reflection!
I had a lot of fun making some large flowers from felt and have put two of them on the wall in large frames.  I tried to make the felt lacy and fluted and am very pleased with the results, these photos show the felt in layers

And one of the flowers in its frame

In the meantime, we have had a very successful Coffee, Cake and Craft Session with delicious cakes made by my daughter Jess - Victoria sponge, lemon whoopie pies and carrot cake! The lemon whoopie pies were a big hit!

Seven lovely ladies came to this mixed craft session, some were crocheting, some beading and some working with polymer clay!  A very enjoyable afternoon with lots of chatting and exchanging of ideas!

Next date is Saturday 4th June!

Last Thursday I spent a very pleasant evening with the lovely Hannah at Make, Do & Mend in Moulsham Street, running a workshop making owl cushions, the results are gorgeous as you can see below.

Such a busy week, Saturday was spent running another workshop at the Stables Visitor Centre, this time a crochet session for some very nice ladies who had undertaken the beginners course a couple of months ago.  We spent a very enjoyable day making beaded pot covers, the results are fabulous as seen here
