It's Julie Arkell time, guaranteed correct time twice a day!
While we were waiting for Julie to arrive at the studio, we rooted through Louise's stash of fabrics,
bought vintage goodies from the well stocked shop,
and got to know one another whilst drinking tea.
We were all excited and one of the girls's said "when Julie arrives do we curtsy" haha.
Julie put up all her display's to give us inspiration and idea's for the day's makes.
"Finding the words"
clocks and watches,
and bunches of wild flowers,
beautifully displayed on old shirt's and jumper's.
We were all a bit giddy to be doing any sewing, but sew we did and I decided to make a bunch of the "wild flowers"
these are what I've started on but still haven't finished, we've been off work this week and have been on days out here, there and everywhere, so no time to sew.
A few flowers,
a watch and a rabbit house, still lots of sewing and ideas to carry on with.
Louise and Miss Debs made us a lunch to be proud of and we all nattered the afternoon away but all too soon it was time to say our goodbyes, I chose a couple of thing's to come home with me.
One of Julie's "tic toc" watches now resides on my arm, set at 20 past twelve, just in time for lunch,
and "tender" or Miss Rosie, is now nestled, snugly on my jumper.
Thank you Louise, Miss Deb's and Julie and all the lovely girl's that I met, for a truly wonderful day,
can't wait for next year!!
