teaching, Canvey and Stow on the wold

Just Had a great few days. Last week I had a visitor from Australia working with me. She was a wonderful lady called Jeannie and she came to spend two days with me to learn how to make a silk bowl. Her family thought that she was very brave coming to stay with someone she didn't know especially as she was 78 hard to believe when I met her. She traveled from Cheshire where she was staying with her son to Swindon by train. She was brilliant and nearly completed a bowl while she was with me. I felt I had made a friend.  After we saw her off on Friday we went to my mothers at Canvey for Easter joining Sarah Andy and Fraser who were there already. Fraser enjoyed his chocolate rabbit hunt on Sunday. We hid them round the house and garden and he found them all.
I then spent Tuesday teaching embroidered bowls at Stow on the Wold Embroiderers Guild.

I had a brilliant time at the weekend at the Uttoxeter Quilt and Embroidery show. This little Chameleon caused a lot of comment. He is my latest piece of work and great fun to make. he is about to pounce on the Dragonfly but unfortunitely has lost his tongue. Well actually he has forgotten that it is curled up in the back of his mouth.
