Postcard workshop.

Today we held the postcard workshop at Schoolhouse Arts. Everyone was very keen and some arriving half an hour early!Debbie bought in a piece of work that she had made for the Etsy monthly challenge, and she won! Well done Deb!

Marion bought a piece of work that she had started at the 'Stitch to Paint' workshop. It is lovely to see work when it is finished, this was a great achievement for Marion, who does not like to get messy. Oh dear! Today was going to be another messy day!

Today's objective was to make two mixed media postcards, and as you can see from the photo's below everyone did really well. A special mention to Jayne and Doreen who had NEVER done F.M.S.(free machine stitching). Everyone painted, spritzed, sprinkled,zapped, burnt, stitched- hand and machine and made some wonderful postcards-or nearly postcards.The postcards will need a bit of hand stitching at home to complete them, and then they are going to be posted to Nickie, by the time they have been sorted and franked, they should be nicely distressed. Nickie is then going to take photo's of them as they are delivered and post them on her blog. They will then be posted back to their owners.

Debbie very kindly made lemon and chocolate muffins for our afternoon cup of tea. The lemon ones were delicious I was told, and I can recommend the chocolate ones.

I just managed a photo of the last tasty lemon muffin before it was eaten by, guess who????????

At the end of the workshop, Marion who does not like to get messy, said that she had had a great time and wants to come to another postcard workshop!!!!!
