As we were a little early we stopped for a coffee at a new (to us) cafe that’s opened up right next door to Treehouse, Javier and Sam’s Kitchen. Was the Best hot chocolate!then a wander around Emma’s lovely shop before settling down to our task with a kita tin (which Ma Kettle used to keep her darning threads in) and a little Liberty and not a needle or thread in sight!By lunchtime, we were a room full of happy students with gorgeous lined tins. Here’s mine – I’m so delighted with it! Beautiful tin……now lined inside…….and on the lid…….and even on the bottom!Wanna see the others? GJ’s gorgeous tinwith fab hexagon (wouldn’t be right with anything else, would it?) liningKerry’s sweet tinand pretty lining with button tooSusan’s cute dog tinwith the animal theme continuing insideMarilyn’s faded beautynow with fabulous bright insidesDebra’s more modern tinwith classic insideBronwyn’s conservative outsideand stunning insideand lastly Leanne’s gorgeous floral tinwith equally gorgeous floral liningIt was such fun to be on the other side of the table as a student learning something that I had no knowledge about and something so different to do and so enjoyable to do!
After lunch and another hot chocolate for me and GJ (mine matches my tin!)Di took us through the makings of some accoutrements for our tins. Unfortunately GJ and I had to leave early, but we have the knowledge and have started the makings for a thimble keeper, a scissor keep and a pincushion. Hope to show you those soon.
