A Splendid Time Was Had...

... by all! Yesterday was fun indeedily... it was my first class back after the break and we got all hot and bothered playing with the Melt Pot. Calamity struck no sooner than I had got to The Stamp Attic though... one of my Melt Pots died! I mean, what is it with me and electrical goods at the moment huh? Thankfully Wendy came to the rescue and we had the full compliment working again soonly enough.


Big thanks to Val, Jan, Sylvia, Thelma and Annette for a fab day... as usual, we all had a laugh at my expense, mainly because no matter how hard I try, I always do a booboo and say totally the wrong thing... yesterday's pearl of wisdom was... "you just put it in and jiggle it about" *snort* Here's the class sample...


So... we were doing a UTEE Sampler... basically 10 different ways using UTEE, popping them all onto a decorated board and then adding a hanging... these are the finished projects... well, all apart from Annette, I never ever get a pic on Annette's finished piece because she always takes it home to finish it off... (which I admit...I always do that too lol)








Have you seen the state of the desk??? Actually this is after we had to move the sweeties away from Thelma... and before I cracked open the choccy... nomnomnomnommmmm


Right... time to go and get organised... I just so happened to grab myself a few beads and pearls yesterday (OMG, if you could've seen the little pots of beads, pearls and findings you would so have been there grabbing them... I had to really stop myself... ) I have a fancy to try my inky fingers at fashioning something wearable...like... jewellry!!! Don't hold your breath though because I have the fattest sausage fingers in the World, so fiddly things evade me... nay and thrice, I have the hands of a docker!! Oh and... I got a bead mat! Never heard of one of these but oh dear and thrice... they are the softest fuzzy cloth and I admit I did spend several minutes rubbing said cloth onto my cheek and drooling (you think I am kidding? lol) Thanks for looking... TTFN!

I had to smile at myself as I read one line as saying:
" have the hands of a docker!! Oh and... I got a BEARD mat!"
I nearly chocked on my tea lol
