My family history....

Here is my layout from last week's Craft Den class. Just recently I have had to show more of an interest in my family history, especially the female members, for medical reasons. This is my Great Grandma Kate. I never knew her but doesn't she look stern! She was Mum to four children, her daughter Freda was my Grandma who I have fond memories as a child. Unfortunately she died young from cervical cancer in her mid 40's. Just this month Kate's son passed away, Dennis was in his early 80's. Her other daughter Mildred is still alive and has some great stories to tell!

A great day....

I taught my second bag class yesterday at the Craft Den. It was a busy day but the seven ladies were lovely and all managed to complete their bags before going home. Here is Jill modelling her bag above and Ann is showing off her bag below......

Craft bucket.....

I had great fun yesterday teaching at the Craft Den. Everyone went home with a lovely hand crafted tote bag. This is our next project, a craft bucket. Mine is filled with sewing threads and equiptment but it could also be used for paper crafting as there is plenty of room for scrapbooking stash! The next class is on 23 July 2011 at the Craft Den if you are interested?

Bags, Bags and more Bags!

I am teaching at the Craft Den this weekend so I thought I would have another practice at the lovely bags we will be making. The one on the left has some cute cat fabric in it and the other is made from some lovely Tanya Whelan fabric. I'm really excited about teaching the sewing class, I have sewn for over 15 years and just love to go back and concentrate on my first hobby, patchwork and quilting!

I love summer....

I finally found 10 minutes to write on my blog! This is my layout from last week's Craft Den class. We used some great papers in bright primary colours. I had these photos in my craft bag for ages waiting for the right papers to come along!

I have triple embossed a wooden star shape with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and then stamped into it with a text stamp "Love".

Here is our lovely foster Lloyd chillin in the garden with my partner Martin.
