a) because I couldn't face packing everything up to take, unpack there and pack up again
b) there are changes going on at the centre and at least until September it's not possible to hold my class.
I'd prepared the example way back - a concertina card and envelope box to hold it - many thanks to Julie Kettlewell for the idea and the tutorial on her blog juliesjapes. Also to Amanda Bates ( thecraftspa) who also made these and provided the link for the envelope box. We also made a small lidded box - it had sweets in it - I saw this here http://pootles.co.uk/2014/05/09/rectangular-lidded-box-tutorial-with-roses-using-stampin-up-spiral-flower-die/ I think it's wonderful that there are so many generous crafters who share their ideas and provide tutorials. Thank you.
Here are a few photos
All ready and waiting
The ladies - ready to start
Below are the examples I made. I can't believe I forgot to take photos of their makes :-(
Afterwards I went out for lunch with two of the ladies - beginning to do things again :-)
Sunday was lovely as well. A very relaxed morning and then later we went to our youngest son's for a BBQ that ended up being cooked and eaten indoors as the weather didn't play nicely.
Today I managed a short walk and then did some crafting. I am a much happier bunny at the moment.
I do hope you have all been able to do things that make you happy. Back soon x
