Ombersley Church Fete

My creative sister Tessa and I had a stall at the Fete yesterday. The Arts & Craft tent was a new innovation but seemed to appeal to quite a lot of people. It was a first for us but very enjoyable and we learned a lot. The "hearty hens" and the quilted bag are Tessa's. I made clay jewellery and displayed some drawings and watercolours I did ages ago. The jewellery attracted lots of little girls who were keen to have a little spend. It was lovely to see how solemn and serious they looked as they decided what to buy.

Ineke Berlyn workshop

Sorry - no photos to show you. The workshop was great - screenprinting using discharge paste to create a fabric ready for stitching. Oh boy, did I enjoy myself! Ineke is lovely - the only tutor I've come across who bakes cakes for the students. Other tutors please take note!
