When we are doing what we love,we don't care about time.For at least at that moment,time doesn't exist and we are truly freeMarcia Wieder
It's been a while since my last post but in my defence I have been very busy. Classes, SECC, demo weekends, 4 all day classes AND the very last Artsycrafts 3 day adventure. Added to the mix has been exam time for the sproglets (they both did very, very well) in spite of Mr Perfect and I being "study buddies". Two weeks of relearning stuff I'd forgotten more than 40 years ago!!! At least offering advice/help on the art projects was easy. They had the most amazing ideas but required just a little help to put them into practise. I also have been upgrading a house that I bought so that my mum/sproglets granny could move back to Scotland to be near us. Nightmare. Anyway hopefully I am now on the home stretch with it.
Artsycrafts was amazing. I think that this one was the very best. Lin and Leandra are truly thee most talented, inspirational individuals I have ever met. Yes I know I've met T!m Holtz but they are right up there with him. Pop over to Lin's blog to have a look at the gorgeous projects
I have learnt so much, from Lin especially, and I'm really sad that there are to be no more of them. But I realise that it is a huge undertaking to stage these classes both in time and energy. I'd also like to say a big thanks to my "table companions", Ruth, Rachelle, Liz and Kerrie (aka Wendy). Those that know me, also know that I have real problems remembering peoples names. Despite the fact that Kerrie wore her name badge throughout, I remained convinced that she was a Wendy??

I will get round to posting my finished pieces soon!! I have almost completed the sewing box and the rusty relic but my fabric book is going to take some time. These are few of the pieces that are nearer completion.

A few weeks ago I taught a Ten Seconds Studio metal embossed mirror frame class. 8 ladies came along to take part and learn to use the TSS tools and moulds. I wish I'd taken more photos.
