Wednesday 22 May

Hiya, it's been awhile, my apologies, I've been really busy with projects and such.
On Wednesday we had a bookies workshop run by Barb N.  It was to learn to make a 3 dimensional book.  Eleven of us got started with measuring and cutting and marking and then pasting and more cutting.  Then we could begin thinking about which pictures we would use and how to work out the cutting for the front and middle pages.  If that sounds complicated then yes it was until you had worked out how it all went together and then sorted your pictures.  There are photos below of us working away after lunch and the midday meeting.  And one finished page if also shown so that you can see what we were doing.
Show and tell was not very long yesterday, but there was still some interesting items.  There were some Christmas items, which are being sampled as prizes for the lucky dips at our Christmas Fair later in the year.  There was an ATC swap yesterday, unfortunately I was only able to photograph a few of the cards, members had already departed by the time I got sorted with my camera. (I was one of the eleven in Barb's class so that held me up).
