Feeling quite sad that next week is my last week with Hartsholme Community Contact Centre in Lincoln... won't see them again for a while...until the jewellery making sessions in January :-)
Janet, Pam, Andrea and Caz have shared cups of tea and stories with me over the last couple of weeks and I will miss peering over the rim my teacup, watching their delight at creating their own unique style.
Thought I'd share with you, the fab' Christmas table decorations they made today...
They took their usual seats, (funny how people nearly always return to the same seat week after week), and were faced with a mountain(!) of (recycled and new), baubles, ribbons, buttons, beads, foliage, embellshments(!), indulgences(!) etc...
"Take a plate and have a play" I told them.
I love the way this group just "dive in" to the materials - they seem to love them (almost) as much as I do! And time goes soooooo fast! We have a cuppa, put the world to rights and create something beautiful too!!!
Anyway, I showed them an example of one I'd made earlier,(just like Val) and said "Go! Create!" and this is what they came up with...
The following session we made these lovely boxes from wallpaper scraps and trim, buttons etc...
... I got the wallpaper from my local Interior Design Shop - they gave me an old sample book.
Looking forward to hearing how the two above were received from Pam and Janet's family and freinds.
