Fun With Mandy

I have had another lovely weekend away at
Cowslip Workshops I left home at 6.30 Saturday morning to drive to Cornwall for some Christmas Fun, it was a Christmassy workshop with Mandy Shaw of Dandelion Designs. What a great weekend it was , I have still some finishing off to do on my doll angel- Wings and Hallo to make - Notice her dress, I used my lovely tea dyed TOILE on her. Why because she was so worth it.
Mandy has a book out called Quilt Yourself Gorgeous published by David and Charles.It is packed full of lovely things to make and another book out next April.

She was very excited over the weekend as she had Channel 4 television at her home this past week. Its another Kirsti Alsop and Phil Spencer programme all about making Christmas gifts which will be screened in December.

Mandy also has a blog if you would like to hop over and have a LOOK HERE.

Thanks Mandy for a fun weekend and sharing tears together, why tears you ask? we got talking about DH and turns out Mandy lost her mum to Dementia last year so we had a good cry together. Crying together and laughing together is always a great bond.

I also have to THANK Jo at Cowlsip who puts up with me and Mery for the weekend. I would love to know what she is on as she is full of boundless energy and enthusiasm.

I never seem to get a photo of Jo but if you read Mandy's blog you will see her pictured as she was featured in the October issue of Country Living Magazine.
Well done JO.

P.S. Should have told you my Christmas pudding is a needlecase and I just have to make another of these little reindeer.
