I have just spent a lovely weekend in Northampton (the Western Australian one) and I stayed at Horrocks with Di and Ian , who were wonderful hosts - crayfish for lunch was a treat and I behaved myself by sitting through an Aussie Rules game only falling asleep for a short time and then Eagles won. Sadly I had to wait until today to find out what happened in the rugby but the Hurricanes were beaten.
My class arrived well before me on the Sunday - they worked hard and created some lovely work. That is one of the exciting things about workshops - everyone learns something new and I always get new ideas from what people do.
The old paper napkins went down well and it always amazes me the different results you get
Joan didn't really want to sew......
We did a variety of different things
Wonderful from Leonie
And some more
And then she found my three fat sparrows moulding mat which she insisted were three fat chooks - who am I to disagree?
Jude produced these ethereal pieces
I am not sure whose these were but we started talking about additions to silk
Di was planning with rods
A few more additions to silk
Helen stitched some rods
She was also busy with napkins - this was lovely
And some layering
Not sure whose this was but Bonny who whipped her work away before I could catch it was working in pink
I think Dell did this one
A variety of activities
Simple transfer with some great results
Barbara's pieces were fantastic
Some casting awaiting
Some more of Barbara's work
And she found my favourite sponge alphabet stamps
And the sunset at Horrocks - thanks everyone for a delightful weekend - I loved all the work and enjoyed the surrounds.
