Feeling the heat..

Quickish post, I had a fabulous day yesterday at Sue Carrington's Triptych workshop. I didn't quite finish assembling it in time so said I would post the the completed project. If you click on the link you can see the original colour scheme but I think the heat must have got to me and I chose a vibrant colour scheme. My comfort zone is neutrals or muted shades but it's been so sunny recently I just couldn't help thinking of sizzling sunny colours!

Anyway it was a fab workshop as always. One of the joys of a workshop is meeting like minded people, some who have crafted before and some to whom it's a whole new world....and one of the things I realised meeting new crafters is that there should be a crafters dictionary or thesaurus because we really do have our own special lingo. There were some puzzled faces, but by the end you could see another crafty addict emerging and looking forward to the next workshop.

Lastly thanks for all your lovely comments from my 2 recent posts, it's quite scary being given the honour of producing a piece of work for another blog but I thoroughly enjoyed it and really do appreciate people taking the time to visit my blog and for leaving such lovely comments...A Humungous Thank you!
