It went well!!
Well I was terrified, my tummy was doing cartwheels - but it went well! What did??? Well at last month's WI meeting (first I'd ever been to), I learned that this month's meeting was to be a crafting evening!! Right up my street I thought, and offered to lend a hand... whereupon I was thanked - and given a box with lots of blank cards, some wooden embellies, and a book of 12 x 12 paper - and told that there would be 3 lots of 20 women for 30 mins each on the evening! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhhhhh I thought!! Why didn't I keep my big mouth shut, I thought!!! ANWAY, the night was to also have tables of Sugarcraft Cross-stitch..... so I scratched my head, and got down to coming up with some ideas of what the ladies could put together.... and although I was really terrified, I just showed them my samples...... gave them the materials.... and let them get on with it.... though I was there to answer the questions! In at the deep end.......as they say...
And it went really well - Everyone seemed to enjoy the table from the feedback.. and went away clutching their own artwork! I think there is a 10 year old girl or a frustrated blue peter presenter that loves cutting and sticking in everyone!!
As you can see from the pics (sorry one is sideways), it's quite a youngish crowd at this brand new WI - not a sign of jam or Jerusalem..... or even calenders for that matter (no buns large enough for me!!), so we all had a good laugh..... and I got lots of people who gave me their names for me to do some workshops with! So today I'm happy..... that it's over with - LOL!!
Just wanted to share my happiness...
Big Hugs and Happy Crafting
