A chance to shine!

Everyone has something to offer in a group and each person adds value.
I like to spotlight someone and this time it's Jo Jo, She has reached deep within her self this term in particular and bursting with creativity. And her sketch book just shows it, I love the "art class rules!" Yae.

The bits & bobs boxes are left over tea boxes they were just asked to decorate it however they felt, just for fun to keep printing stamps and of course bits & bobs in. Harmony covered hers with left over raping paper and cut out a design from and old card, there's a message on the inside of the lid ;-)

A design Harmony made for the inspiration for the bags were making, there are small stitches running through this one.
And a start on the bags has begun; Sophie had to unpick all of her stitching as the side piece's didn't line up, much to her disappointment and she hated me for a good 10 minutes for asking her to do so but all ended well after she and I battled with the sewing machine, Sophie this is shaping up to be stunning. Jo Jo is making a felt purse which is so sweet can't wait to see them finished.

OK lastly we did some weaving around Easter and I 'duh' I didn't photograph them. The brown, gold & green one is a sample I made with a group a few years back and it's good to show a finished one as the task can seem daunting, mine has a button,beads,wire,fabric as well as threads and ribbons. The red one below is my daughter Jodie's (14)  she's up to her eye's with school work so hasn't gotten round to finishing it; anyway as my memory serves me they came out well and the girls enjoyed making them, Harmony turned hers into a bracelet, what an original idea! and we thought they could be included in a bag or make a whole bag with this technique.
