eyes down

We had a great time trying out our hand again with some more life drawing last week, this time with charcoal and collage.  But poor Estelle... she got a bit chilly posing for us even though we were concentrating really hard to get our collages done quickly.  Our collective thanks go to the ever patient Kate Hardy for her guidance and encouragement, and to Estelle for sitting for us with such fortitude (we'll make sure it's warmer next time).

Thanks too to everyone who baked and bought cakes for the Cake Break from MS.  There was an opportunity for second helpings at our Friday coffee morning at the Create Place, just a few doors along from our evening home at St Margaret's House.  What a lovely morning.  A warm welcome, a cosy atmosphere, lots of chat and laughter between cups of tea and some truly delicious cakes.  (Jackie - I need that recipe for the delicious orange and almond cake, please!).

We also had a chance to see what the Create Place has to offer - lots of handmade goodness for sale, and a sewing class in progress upstairs with Amanda.

If you fancy it, you too can drop in on Friday mornings to the Create Place Sewing Cafe (machines for hire at £7 per hour).  Other courses are listed on the website.

More news soon on what we have lined up for you at our next meeting on 21st June.

Happy holiday weekend!
