Friends,fabric and fun

The last two weeks I have had such joy getting back into my creative crafts and catching up with friends.coffee and craft commenced after some months break. Linda made some lovely book covers and Kerry was completing a crochet gift.
I was working on a patchwork hanging under the title of Winter Wonderland for the guild. No pictures yet as I will blog about it at a later date.lots of embroidery, applique and imagination thrown in. My Dollshouse miniature hobby has been in the back burner for some time but two of my houses went in an exhibition on their own this weekend past to raise funds for the RNLI and I believe the DAME group raised over £1300.
Both the storybook cottage and the crooked house I built under the tuition of Rik Pierce, an incredible tutor

It was also lovely to get together with some miniature friends for an evening out.
One of the reasons I didn't make it to the Dollshouse exhibition was that I was oil painting all day with Julie Douglas on the Saturday. I have been wanting to paint animals for some time but not quite ready yet to paint Smudge so did a pig.
This little one was my colleague's pig . I must ask her its name.

I was amazed at how much I got done in a day especially since it's months since I had a brush in my hand. Many more hours to go though.

My precept Bible study starts back this week too and we are looking at Philippians. Throughout this study we are reminded to rejoice in all circumstances and this is something that I have been reminding myself especially after such a difficult summer dealing with stress and anxiety. I am thankful for the support of my friends but firstly I thank God for all he has done for me. He brings a joy that can be found no other way.
