Say Hello To Spot

Yesterday I attended my first workshop here in Jersey - Little Bonded Books with Gina Ferrari. I have done this workshop before but I wasn't entirely happy with my efforts so I decided to give it another go. I'm glad I did because I like this one much more than my first attempt.

Today I had two workshops booked.

The first one was with Christine Witham. When assembled all the pieces in the picture below will make a corsage. This was a thoroughly enjoyable workshop and I learnt a new technique that can be used for many decorative purposes.

This afternoon however was a different story all together. Again it was spent in the company of Gina. The result (below) was Spot. Not quite what I had imagined but that was my fault.
We were all enjoying ourselves so much that I stitched the arms where the ears should be and the ears where the arms should be.

The workshop was held in the Parish Hall. There was four workshops going on at the same time and ours was the noisiest. We all had a great time and couldn't stop laughing.

This evening we are going to a lecture by Gina - more of that tomorrow.

Oh my - I was oohing and aahing over your lovely book and corsage pieces and then Spot just got me!

Much more fun having your arms where your ears should be :-)

Hope you have a fab time!

Reminds me of the Vauxhall Corsa dolls...C'MON!

I think you were all being very naughty, laughing too much and not paying attention in class! I'm back on firm land after a much better crossing home!

I hope you've put poor Spot's arms back where they should be :o)) Sounds like you had a scream!!
