Someone is going to be very angry with me, :o( I came out of the Art Centre at Caistor tonight, and realised I hadn't taken one photograph. I think part of my brain is dead. Some photographs were taken and I have been assured that copies will be sent, so I hope I will have some to post.
The truth is, it was a manic night, and I completely forgot the camera in my bag. I took loads of things to demonstrate, show, play with, and once the knitting needles came out there was no stopping them. About fifteen ladies sat round a big table, all chatting merrily away,and playing with all the stuff I took.
There was making yarn out of plastic bags, knitting video tape, and crochet around the drinks can squares. I showed the key ring fobs made out of vinyl and gave away four kits to make them. The zips which you sew together to make a purse and gave kits to take home and make them. The necklaces made out of a fabric tube filled with glass marbles, five ladies took bags of marbles home to make their own.
We played with making tea light holders from drinks cans, and fusing plastic bags. Everyone was so enthusiastic to learn something. I think they will look at their rubbish in a completely different light from now on, and think before throwing stuff in the bin. Anyway, they have lots of ideas for future workshops.
I had a text message from Sue tonight. The cat we took in today is micro chipped and the owners have been located. They have been looking for her, put posters up, and are very pleased that they are getting her back. So another happy ending for Burton cat Rescue.
Did someone mention Super Scrimpers? Well I am getting a phone call from Jo, a researcher for the programme, tomorrow morning, to discuss my money saving tips and if they want to include me. So you never know, watch this space. Goodnight.
