HAVING A BREAK

would be great, but I don't seem to be able, this week has just been a whirlwind of activity - some bad, some good and some just absolutely brilliant!!
On Monday I went to a workshop at Paddy's Place, well...I was amazed, the fantastic Sylvia Woods showed us the most fantastic techniques involving felt, lace and a heatgun and I made the most gorgeous book covers - haven't done much with them yet but here are two of the pieces.


Tuesday was craft at Sale followed by picking up my grandson, Wednesday trying to catch up on housework and washing and another craft club. On Thursday I tried and failed to get to grips with the mountain of craft stuff. Then...on Friday my fabulous youngest son took me to lunch, we started by going to a new place in Manchester - Jack Spratts on a side street near the Town Hall, for coffee and I would recommend it to anyone visiting that area.
In between times I ahve done some work in my journals, including a new one which will be garden based as a tribute to my late Dad


And finally an example of my pearshaped crafting - made a tag and then realised the script stamp was upside down!!!!......


Thanks for looking,
Chris
