Yesterday I took the day off and went on a basket making course with a friend of mine.
Look what I made! Yes, me! I made that basket! All by my self! Oh my goodness I am so proud of it.
I had the most wonderful day. My friend drove us over in the morning and the workshop itself was held in a huge poly tunnel filled with flowers and raspberries and hay bales :-)
I was so excited I had to try hard not to giggle! It was really fun learning a new craft and something so different to what I usually make. I loved the feel of the willow and the colours and wow the shape and movement once we got weaving.
We were a small group, my friend and I and 2 other really lovely ladies, the weaver and her daughter who was helping out. We could really relax and talk openly, we talked about life and work, yoga and meditation, health foods, gardening and crystals. It was simply heaven (especially as no-one interrupted me wanting their nappy changed or nose wiped).
After lunch we got straight back to work
It is so beautiful and I will certainly be seen flouncing around the shops with it :-)
