A floral workshop.

Good afternoon everyone and thanks  for popping in. 
I do hope that you had a lovely weekend.
It was a busy one for me, I went to the Stitches Trade show 
At the NEC yesterday,,,
It was a fab day , but there were many of the usual companies missing , and the show was much 
Smaller than usual. 
I did place an order for some new products for us to use...
So that was good...
Something to look forwards to in future workshops. 
Saturday saw us having a floral workshop in the Lake District. 
One of our regular Crafters asked if we could use Pixie  powders as she had some 
And wasn’t sure what to do with them..
So we had a chat about Pigmant powders, such as Brushos , Color Burst and Pixie Powders. 

We used two lovely stamp sets from Hobby Art...
The October florals ....The Magnolia 

And the November florals ....The Irises 
The large Iris stamp is just so good to colour...

After lunch it was time for my favourite design of the day..

Look at these stunners...

And then after tea and cake we made ATC’s ..
And swapped them with each other ..

Such fabulous little pieces of art...
I love the one that I as lucky enough to bring home,,

Thanks for a great day ladies...
And to the regulars who were unwell and couldn’t join us...
We did miss you..
And hope to see you back with us next month..
Then don’t forget the retreat in April..

I have been trying to catch up with things today..
Tomorrow will be getting ready for Wednesday’s workshops 
In Hazel Grove..
More messy play...

Take care all..
Date night tonight for Karl and me...
So I had better get a move on...

Love and hugs 
Jo. xxxx
