Happy New Year!

First of all, happy new year to you all - hope it brings health, wealth and happiness.
And nextly, thank you to the ladies who attended the class on Wednesday, as t'was a lovely day. I promised on the last post that I'd upload sneak peeks of the January birds and trees class. Well, below are the piccies: alright, so one of these classes has gone by and there is a repeat of it next week, I know we are a little behind here. But December turned out to be chaos, with Christmas cards being made by the bucket full, and crafter-in-charge came to visit me in London for a weekend, Christmas shopping had to be done, and then we have all been ill :( On my part, ill frequently, yucky yuck. I know December and winter do bring lots of germs, but there do seem to be some nasty ones going round of late! So, the cards were made after the Christmas cards, and with chief blogger i.e. moi being ill, I couldne post them. But here they are for those who are on this class, this Saturday 15th January.

And these, below, are sneak peeks of the cards for the February class, because we are now organised, not ill, and Christmas with its pretty preparations and masses of cards has gone for another year.
It's called Buttons and Bows, and the first class of it is on Friday 18th February 2011. It is 10.30am - 3pm at St Cuthbert's Church, Lytham Road, Preston. The class is £23 and includes all materials and plenty of tea and biscuits. If you would like to book a place, email us at

Look, you get to make your own buttons, stamp on them, with stamped ribbon and delicate stamp effect backgrounds...

Dot pattern punching and make your own flowers...

Plus we are starting a gathering again! At St Cuthbert's Church Hall, in the same place as the above-mentioned class. Our first one will be on Saturday 12th February 2011, 11am - 3pm, £3.50 which includes tea and biscuits.
If anyone is interested in putting their name down for this gathering, let us know,by email (further up in this post) or by commenting at the end of this post :)
We need to know who will be attending so as to have a rough idea on the numbers and amount of tables needed for crafting.
Come along and bring a crafty project, be it knitting, card-making, sewing, scrapbooking etc - every crafter welcome!
Back to the city tomorrow for me, everything packed, may need to take out the kitchen sink before I go..the packing is definitely lacking in crafty goodies, but at least have got a new book in it by Cath Kidston :) Hope everybody has had a good weekend and happy crafting!
