You have to love Paper Patchwork


Last weekend I had the honour of spending two days being taught by Hels Sheridan.  If you are not aware of the talent this lady has have a little look see at her blog.
The first day she taught a class on Paper Patchwork and the second day on Paper Blocking.  Both days were filled with so much more than the project themselves and the time flew by.  Hels is definitely a giver of information.and a really nice lady. I would definitely recommend that if you have the chance you take a class with Hels, you so will not regret the decision. I also got to spend time with my  pal Lou who is totally barking mad but a sweet kind beautiful person.

I have also now left my job of nearly 7 years.  It was huge decision to make and took a lot of time to get to the point that I was able to make the appropriate decision. What is next...............Not sure, time will tell.  One thing  I know is that I will not be working in a job that has any pressure at all and that's for sure.

I  am sponsoring  this months  CC101 challenge. This is a group I belong to and all members of the group have had to complete Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry on-line workshop.
I decided that the example I was going to use for the challenge was going to be one of the projects I started at last weekends workshop with Hels and finished off at home during the week. The theme of this months challenge is Vintage or Christmas.  My project combines the two elements.
