Cake, coffee & art (part 1)


Yesterday (Friday) was the World's Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, and as usual the Cubby Hole played host to one of the events. Aside from copious amounts of Tea, Coffee and cake, there were opportunities to be creative.
Sue Roddis showed us how to make magnetic bookmarks, there was bobbin lace making and Jean from Fineart 53 did a watercolour session. This is what I came up with under her guidance, not bad for a first attempt. No doubt it will appear on a Christmas card soon :)

Come back later for part 2 :)

  2. Your robin is too good for just a card,Nigel. You should frame it and hang it on your wall.
