I had a fun morning at work.
The first one I tackled was a window decoration - a translucent sheet with various creepy designs on them - just waiting to be coloured in.
I chose a spider :-) That was pretty easy to start with.. Then I tried the coaster - a foam spider shape with slits in so you could weave some coloured ribbon through it.
|Awesome Coaster :-)|
Then there was another self-adhesive shape to stick on the back to hide the ends of the ribbons. Then you finished it off with some stick on eyes, mouth and fangs. Lovely :-) I am really happy with that - I'll put my mug on it.

I was really pleased with how this came out! Tracy had chosen to so a mobile - which had a LOT of pieces. She had to colour each one in - and she was making such a good job of it that it isn't quite finished yet. It is going to be epic!!
So now we can put them on display and encourage the real kids to sign up for our session! :-)
I managed to finish it too. It is called "The Girl from Station X - My Mother's Unknown Life" about a woman who discovers through her mother's diaries that she worked at Bletchley Park during the war. it is fascinating - I loved it.
It was a very pleasant afternoon - but now I'm sat by the open French Windows listening to the rain. It is nice to be cool!
We shall see if this is the end of the heatwave!
