Giveaway won and a day well spent

Here is a quick pic of a book I made yesterday, with some of the scraps of silk I had lying around the studio. We had enough sun this morning to take a quick pic so here it is!

 The colours are lovely and I am really pleased with the overall effect. I hope to do a craft fair in the near future and these books will probably be an element of the stock.

Today has been a good day too. As it happened I had plans to spend today with a friend but as she was unable to make it I dragged the gorgeous Paul over to Sandringham to the Game and Country Show. Bless him - he has a tough life! I drove all the way with the roof of  my MX5 down and his forehead has gone pink... but I bought him an ostrich burger and that seemed to appease him nicely!!!

Anyway, the fair was a great day out and the craft village was worth a visit; which is something we cant always say about craft fairs these days! As it happened I bumped into fellow blogger Maria of Creative Bumblebee, which has to be one of my favourite reads! She was marvellous and the stand looked great laden with treasures galore!

I recounted my tales of scarf felting woe and, once she had stopped laughing, she suggested I come on one of her day courses. I (of course) readily agreed, never one to disappoint a fellow crafter and I have signed up for a class to make a bag and corsage on Sunday 26th September. I can't wait. I hope the felted flowers will be a suitable addition to the mixed media jewellery and other items I am currently working on (more to be shared another day). So in 2 weeks I will head off to Leicester with my pack lunch and a towel (As Ford Prefect pointed out "If you're going to survive out there, you've really got to know where your towel is."). Apparently we need two so I will be extra prepared!!!!

And now the results of the Giveaway

All of the names are popped in a bowl!

They were mixed by the gorgeous Paul and he selected one.
