Spring Term Sugarcraft

The new Spring Term for my Sugarcraft started this evening.  We are making daffodils, snowdrops, pussy willow and irises.  Along side this we are also making a pastillage card with roses.  All very exciting.  The group was in bouyant mood and there was much chat and banter, the time flew by.  I am meeting the lady who sits next to me on Friday, so we can go for a coffee.  Another thing to look forward to!

Tonight we made the buds/inners for the roses and I think another flower, but I really can't remember - what am I like??? - and the buds for the pussy willow.  I've not actually done the pussy willow yet - they will go on the white wire.  Ah, I remember - the smaller buds are for the snow drops.  For next week, I need to decide what colour roses I want to do.  I don't think it will be anything flambouyant.  My first thought was to do them blood red, ready for Valentines Day.

There is also a cake decorating workshop at the beginning of March.  I'd like to do that.  It's not yet been decided what style we shall be doing - Mothers day, Easter or Christening.  It will be with a sponge rather than fruit cake.

I'll try and post after each class and show you the progress. 

I have found a Mother and Toddler Group in Gosforth - on a Tuesday Morning, so I shall take Mary-Jane next week.  I have also been told of a Music Group that is held twice a month, at the same venue.  We shall go to that as well.  The next one is on the 20th January.

My head is busy with WI and Knitting Stuff.  Today has been a busy 'head day'.  I also made online acquaintences with a lady who lives a few miles away, who sounds very much like me when it comes to all things Knitty.........  Until tomorrow, Adieu!
