Never too old!!

Yesterday saw me up at 6.45 and on the road to Harrogate with my lovely friend Sarah! We had booked a days workshop at AFTH with Dina Wakley.
I hadn't quite counted on a 50mph limit for most of the way and we got there in the nick of time! 
What a day it was though - quite fast paced - and a lot to take in, but Oh Boy! I learnt so much! Fortunately I did little samples and wrote down notes in my little journal

Dina's table
Our table
Here are two of the little pages I made….

….and here they are now!


They are in my large Dylusions journal and I don't know why I don't use this more! I started them at the workshop - Dina asked us to choose two samples to add to our journals - and then couldn't wait to get started once I got home!
Of course the journey home couldn't start until we had been SHOPPING! Goodies to show another day!!


Thanks for looking, Chris

What a transformation. These pages are fantastic. Sounds like you really enjoyed the workshop. I'm glad you are close enough to take workshops like this. You are lucky beyond belief.

Talk about trying to catch up. I can't believe how far behind I've gotten.
