I left the artwork i wanted to show you at the Community Centre, so I shall have to share it with you tomorrow.
and now, to be frank, I’m fit to drop.
Today was excellent – well, for me it was!
The projects went down well, and it was so good to see folks get genuinely excited when they nailed a particular skill.
That’s what it’s all about really.
It’s not that I am particularly talented or better than any of the retreat participants. Really not. I have just done it all a few more times than them. So my job as I understand it, is to present a number of interesting and informative projects, and help them achieve proficiency whilst having fun and not feeling as though it is a task.
It is always fascinating to have our lovely friend and illustrator extraordinaire, Melanie, in the room. She perceives things so very differently, and because she isn’t a crafter but more of a fine artist, she just LOVES what we mere mortals achieve with her designs!
Mind you, this is the same woman who uses the stencils she designs as window dressings in her cottage!
Yep. Like Cafe Curtains!
So as we wave goodbye to the first lovely, lovely group, we say hello to the next incoming group. I already bumped into a bunch of them at the Spa this evening! All full of apprehension and excitement. I reckon we are going to have a blast. Especially now we’ve gone through everything once and know where the pitfalls are !! Thanks to the first group for being so patient and gracious.
Love & Hugs,
