At our Young Embroiderers meeting today we had lots of fun wet felting and made felt beads. There was also some blowing of bubbles and flicking of soap suds but we won't mention that! The morning was spent making stockpiles of beads and after lunch we put them together to make various items of jewellery.
Some of the girls decided to make anklets as modeled by Imogen above and Abigail below.
Amun declined to model her beautiful necklace, which was stunning.
Here's Bluebell modelling hers... which matched her top beautifully.
Another anklet by Francesca
A bracelet from Heather
Shaan make a necklace that also matched what she was wearing perfectly.
Rhian made a bracelet and had enough beads left for a matching necklace. As ever it was a super day... girls, Mums and helpers... thank you!
We've also had another birthday this week which of course has meant another cake because apparently you are not too old for a birthday cake even when you are fifty something...
Happy Birthday Stewart!
It was just what I needed after a day playing with soapy water.
