Well - we have travelled down to Barton-on-Sea for a Judith Maslen Workshop in all kinds of weather. Frosts, just plain cold, monsoons and last Saturday it was the hottest day yet. Everyone was just plain sticky and there was no air (well of course there was but it didn't feel like it).
We had two projects as always and we had to work hard - no time off for heat exhaustion.
This posting is about the first project - the 'Fantasy Swallowtail' - No: 1 in a new folder to be called Butterflies Galore.
A beautiful pattern which I proceeded to make a pigs ear of on the day. I put it down to the heat.
So on Sunday I started a new one and this will be a surprise to Judith as hopefully it has improved greatly on the one she saw me making.
Now I just have a few tweaks to perform on the second project. Just waiting for the place to cool down a bit. Even with the fan it is too hot.
Thank you Judith for yet another fabulous workshop - my favourite days in the year. And a big thamk you my companions - Charmaine and Jenny. Charmaine does the driving and Jenny laughs at my jokes. (They both do really).
