Where have all the days gone?

Time is flying by and it's been a whirl of appointments, hard work up my quarter acre allotment, harvesting, cooking, filling the freezer for winter, oh and gardening, weeding, pruning, lawn mowing, cleaning chickens who are moulting making their run look like a feather duvet has burst - the list is endless.

But - on the music front I had my second lesson last Friday and another tomorrow - I am using both hands! (Badly)  I have had to cut my long nails shorter than they have ever been before - sigh - I guess a little sacrifice will be worth it in the end.

I actually went for an 'arty' day out on Sunday - to the Anglia Polymer Clay Guild - over the border into Suffolk - I know, brave aren't I!   So if you live in East Anglia and want to get together with like minded polymer clay enthusiasts - then that's the place to go.

Enid gave a super demo using acrylic inks on polymer clay - and the use of foil on polymer clay too.
 It was a great day out, and I met lots of new people, who share tips and knowlege generously
 There were some youngsters there too  - lots of concentration going on
Lots of  great makes displayed on the table, 
Here are just a few that caught my eye
All colours and styles
 And all made from polymer clay

 The work that has gone into this bracelet
and matching necklace!

The next meeting is in two months' time!
Get in touch if you fancy going - it's only £3 for the day.

WOW Lottie you find all the bargains, £3!!

Looks like you had a fab day. Can you email me the details and I'll see how far it is from me. Is it a class or is it just a free for all?

It's probably too far for me being Suffolk, but you never know!!!

Cheers, Sam xxx
