I have had the loveliest day today delivering a 'needle felt' workshop for the WI. Best of all I met loads of new ladies. I attend as many WI workshops as I am able to get to and get to meet ladies from different WI's. Usually it is the same crowd that book for the different workshops and I had wondered why so few people are interested. It turns out that the ladies had desperately wanted go go along to a workshop but they were always fully booked up. They had booked this one as soon as it was mentioned and I was chuffed to bits that they thoroughly enjoyed the day. We made brooches this morning and then after lunch everyone made a teddy bear. There was so much good natured laughter at the shapes of the bears and various bits of the bodies and I am really pleased that everyone pretty much finished theirs to take home. I have booked for a ribbon workshop in July as it is something that I would love to try. I am now though, absolutely shattered and rather glad that Tony is cooking tea tonight. I think a nice glass of wine will go down a treat this evening.
