My friend and I treated ourselves to a lovely evening of creative stitching with the fabulously talented Vicky Trainor of The Linen Garden yesterday. She held a workshop at our favourite Sugar Plum Tearoom at Homeward Bound.
What a lovely time we had cutting, stitching, chatting and enjoying tea and cake and we all created something beautiful.
There's nothing like getting together with other like-minded crafters to give yourself a boost of creativity and I think we'll all be rifling through our fabric stashes today looking for bits and pieces to make another brooch that will of course be better than the first.
But just look at the beautiful creations we all took home! A whole gardenful of prettiness!
I'm really looking forward to the next workshop - whenever that is - but in the meantime Vicky now has her own mini-shop within Homeward Bound to inspire and delight.
And of course, even if you are not a stitcher or even a local, Sugar Plum is always worth a visit when in the area - afternoon tea there is to die for! :)
