Sunday, a day of rest.

Good evening all and thanks for popping in. I do hope you have had a lovely weekend, mine has flown ....

Today has been two long walks with the dogs, one in the sun and one in the rain....a rather large basket of ironing , some cooking and some cleaning....but tonight is going to be a catch up on tv sort of night....a much needed evening relaxing with Karl...

Yesterday was our regular workshops at CJ Cardcrafts in Stockport , where we have an inky workshop in the morning and then a Groovi workshop in the afternoon....

I even took my 'arm and hammer' toothpaste so that my hands were clean ready for the Groovi class.

The morning ladies made the most wonderful pieces of art , and we had chocolate cake for Susan's birthday....Thanks Janet.

The afternoon ladies made two beautiful projects too, and Wendy , one of our regular Wednesday crafters made the beautiful blue piece of Groovi Right....

I am so proud of know some of the ladies have been coming to my classes for over five years now....they really are like my family, and when I say I am proud of them , I really am....

Another lovely friend of mine Fi is not well enough to come to the Groovi class , so I set her an online challenge...sort of homework.....and yes she got ten out of ten for her two designs....look,,,

And I even got my name on this one,,,

Plus some tassels.....thanks Fi , I love it....and for those who look closely there are two angels with radiation Fi and me both used to be wonderful is clever...

It did mean that I missed our Paul on Hochanda , so I am looking forward to catching the show later on catch up.

Enjoy your evening all,

Much love and hugs

  6. Looks like everyone had fun creating at your workshops on Saturday. I had fun at Emma's groovi Scotland workshop too and I learned so much. Now I just need to practice more to improve.
    Hope you managed to catch up on your TV programmes last night. We ended up taking our daughter back through to Edinburgh last night, but as she had been out all day it was half ten when we left to go through! As a result it will be a lazy morning sent crafting. Have a good week. xx

  7. Beautiful projects from your ladies and Fi's homework projects are fab. I was spoilt yesterday as my daughter cooked dinner for us all as a thank-you for having her children so much. Not a problem really as they are a joy to have. I still need to catch up on programmes. xx

  8. Looks like you had a wonderful time at your classes Jo, I so wished I could come too but you're way far away :-) Glad you had a nice evening with Karl, my sweet peas are doing well xxx

  9. Those puzzles are beautiful! Great work by everyone. The groovi pieces are great, I love my leafy swirl. Xx

  10. Wow Jo these are stunning, love the Groovie parchment looks stunning. Not usually my thing but when i see it it looks so nice.
