Bonny Scotland!

Hi Everyone

The sun is shining and all's well with the world... I spent a lovely day in the sunshine yesterday (hope you did too!). I arrived in Scotland and ended up driving over the Forth Bridge in glorious weather (which makes a change).

I had fun playing with some of Resonate's jewellery bits and pieces with Angela the owner...
Pendant Set

Butterfly Book Embellishment

...and then today went off to Culross to help Donna McGee (Artist & Venue Manager for Resonate) teach a Modrock class for a toddlers' group creating flowers for the Culross Festival - it was a lot of fun... and quite messy... a definite hit with the toddlers and also their mums! They are very creative in Culross...

...even their coffee is a work of art!

Apart from working with the community on various projects, Resonate also runs assorted art and jewellery workshops and has a fab Aladdin's Cave of an art shop. So, if you're in the neighbourhood they are well worth a visit! (Starting in June, their new opening hours are 10am to 4pm Wednesday-Saturday.)

Happy Crafting!

Beginners Needle Felting Kits from Efco

Hi Everyone

Efco have brought out 4 Beginners Needle Felting Kits which, if you've never done it before, are a great way for you to have a go at needle felting. There is a donkey, polar bear, sheep and rabbit to choose from and each one will end up unique with its own expression.

Because of the nature of the needle felting, and because there are small parts, the finished projects cannot be used as toys, however you could hang one on a piece of elastic as a room decoration or, if you make all four, I think they make a great mobile for a child's room!

So, if you've never tried needle felting and fancy giving it a go, you could try one of these new Efco Felting Kits!
Happy Crafting
