Artistic Friday

Friday lunchtime I set off for The Crafts House to submit myself to the process of being artistic ~ please remember there are degrees of artistic! 
The lovely C and I were booked onto a Spring themed class to make 3 things in 3 hours.  We always have the best time with Sandra, there's no pressure, the banter is great, quite often side splitting and the "refreshments" are out of this world homemade goodies ~ Friday we had lovely scones and yummy carrot cake.
First project was to make a bunny ~ we dressed her using papers then added paint for her arms, legs and face.  Finally she has a fabric bow in her hair and a button to adorn her dress.  She is then fixed to the lid of a jar ~ I think mine will be used for holding some of my stitching charms.

Next we made a bumble bee from fabric yo-yos ~ mine still requires the assembly to be completed so no picture just yet.

 Finally came the cutest little bunny peeking out of a watering can ~ there was a choice for finishing the bunny, you could either use papers in the same way as the first project or you could use paint.  Mine is painted a lovely green with added polka dots.  A wire hanger with beads strung and a dangling heart add the finishing touches.

We had another wonderful afternoon - thanks Sandra! 
Our Tuesday stitching group have another painting session booked with Sandra in mid April which I am really looking forward to.  If you're in the North East, or just visiting I can't recommend The Crafts House enough ~ it's always worth a visit.

What wonderful spring time goodies! I can't wait to see your yoyo bumble bees!! Hurry up and get it assembled lol. I love both of the rabbits and would second everything you've said about Sandra and The Crafts House - it's a fantastic place we have here in the North East to go and learn or just craft and chat.
