So today I cut it up and sorted them to colour.
The felt beads I made yesterday at our Schoolhouse Arts Dabble Day were put out to dry in the sunshine and are now ready for me to embellish.
Kezzy took Muppety exploring in our garden, and then she had to do some homework.
Over the Easter holiday we had to save Capri drinks pouches for textiles. On Kezzy's last lesson, she was given double-sided tape instead of masking tape as an aide for holding them in place when stitching. The double-sided tape wouldn't peel off, so the sides, back and front had to be remade. We have been saving the pouches again, ( I have got everyone at school saving them too!) and this afternoon, we had enough to complete the main components. The base and handles have to be made, which is the next lesson.

It's hard to think, looking at the photo, that two hours later we had a terrific storm! The groups swapped activities after lunch. The last hour was spent doing more playing on the embellisher or decorating the felt beads.
When I got home, it was a bit of a rush to get ready for Kezzys birthday bar-b-q. As Alan started to cook, so the storm started! The rain did not stop the fun, and the meal was finished off with a white chocolate fondue.
I had a committee meeting on Thursday, and it has been agreed that we use Writtle Agricultural College for our Regional Day, July 2nd 2011. They were so helpful when we went to view the venue and it has such wonderful grounds, I just hope that the sun shines on that day, so that we can picnic outside in the gardens.
In between writing my school reports, I managed to finish this fabric cuff,(at last) for one of the ladies at work. She was very happy with it.

Also had a phone call tonight that has made me lost for words - can't say anything at the moment as I have got a lot to think about and weigh up some pros and cons.

This cottage had a real old English garden.-roses and honeysuckle.
Then it was onto the Guildhall to see the exhibition. We were the first ones through the door

We have got Pauline Verinder doing a workshop for us in July called 'Boogie with Books' so there was nothing to organise for that.
We have now planned workshops for the rest of the year:-
October -Butterfly mobile with sheers.
We hope that there will be something to please everyone.
I shall be taking a short blogging break as I have my school reports to write, the sooner I start, the sooner I will finish!

Pauline and some of the girls put the exhibition up on Friday, so this was our first chance to view it insitu. It looked amazing!
The morning started off quietly, which gave us time to take a good look at every ones work and take photo's as well. We had taken with us plenty of sewing to do, but once the time the rain eased off we had a steady stream of visitor's to talk to and answer their questions.
Nickie and I got some very positive feedback from the public.
Several people have asked for a bigger image of my 'Fallen Warrior'hanging, so here it is.
We drove home tired but very quietly chuffed ( unusual for us to be quiet!!!)
