Painting tutor Pamela Slater coped well with 5 participants working in different mediums. Jen chose to work in acrylics, Moira oil and Sue, Frances and Pirette all went for watercolour. Everyone went away happy feeling that they had achieved something. I even had a little dabble in oil painting on Sunday, which I really enjoyed and it has inspired me to have a go at some more.

Thanks to a cutting error on the glass at Bricomarche Culli and Steve didn't get the front of the barn finished until Monday, however, it looks fantastic, just needs the painter (me!) to finish it off, but that will have to wait until after the Mystery Blanket workshop as I have 12 bedrooms to prepare before next week!

I am afraid that we won't have the weather for the knitting workshop that we had this time last year, it is starting to warm up a tad, but has been very windy and there is more rain forecast for next week. Never mind lots of knitting in front of a toasty fire.
The cranes have been migrating the last few days, you can hear them coming before you see them, it sounds like a flock of demented chickens and then you see hundreds of them gliding along on the thermals, an amazing sight.
