Second Class!

Class2c2601

Today was my second class and from this moment forward shall be known as Ribbon Gate ... I could do with some ... da da da music here for impact! Oh yes ... it is now a well known fact that I have a complete inability to measure anything remotely fabric connected ... but luckily I suffered from the same inability when I ordered the ribbon so there was plenty of spare :0) They are all now officially Hilary lengths too ... so don't panic if you are on the next round of this class.Class22601 Ribbon Gate will not be rearing it's ugly head again. As you can see from the picture ... it was quite an important element of the project! I realise most of you are going to think I have gone completely mad ... but basically I misjudged the whole ribbon thing on this project ... the timing ... the length and sadly we ran just a little short of time!

Class2a2601 There was definitely nothing second class about the lovely people I spent today with though ... we laughed ... we chatted ... we worked hard and ... erm ... we laughed :0)

Did I love it as much as my first class? ... you can bet your bottom dollar that I did! I was in my element talking about Tim's ... the man that can build a house ... on sand ... with just a bottle of glossy accents and an edge distresser ... grunge paper.

So a big bloggy shout out and a big Thank you to ... Di, Kerry, Carol, Dot, Hilary, Ann, Carol and Jill ... I had a fab time :0)

So now it's your turn ... What you been up to?

Glad your second class went well - you'll be an old hand at this teaching all too soon. BTW if you read my blog you will see you are not alone - I left the paint Dabbers at home for a painted box!!! and I have been teaching for years.
Thanks for your instructions for the gatefoldy type card - you made it so easy to follow.
Hugs Sue xx

Glad you enjoyed your 2nd class as much as the first. What lucky ladies getting to to that gorgeous project with you.

My day today? Well, I am now officially declaring that Christmas is over until 1st December as my OH and I have boxed and bagged up all the Christmas lights now they are dry and put them in the loft and my poor beautiful tree has gone to be recycled, Boo! Hoo!

Looks like a lorra fun to me, you go girl!
My day? Wasteful. Turned up at hopsital for visitng to be told we couldn't - outbreak of virus. Came home, started some work - wrong stuff sent...you know, some days it goes like that..but at least I didn't have to use ribbon!!

Hi - it does look like it needs rather a lot of ribbon!!! You sound like you're enjoying it despite the minor misdemeanors... laughter is what makes the world go round and if you were perfect and you didn't have a laugh, im sure your ladies wouldn't enjoy themselves so much and the time would just drag. I like the finished project. You are a true Tim idol aren't you???

See you tomorrow for WOYWW?? x x x

I once miscalculated ribbon requirements for some wedding invites in boxes. So I have a total understanding of where you are coming from on this. Still got over 200 metres of it !! Lovely screen though !

Stop putting pics of your d**n classes on pleeeease; I'm so jealous :( I know they all had a fab time and your projects are fab - of course. At least I have booked myself a weekend crafty course in Harrogat at the end of March and am really looking forward to that - never been on one before. The only problem is it's the same weekend as the Fashion & Embriodery show at the NEC which is the same time as the Hobbycraft show and as you can get into both shows with one ticket I had planned on doing an overnight stay but can't do that now.

So pleased it went well, Linda and I love the project. It's a while since I bound with ribbon and that's got me hankering after doing it again - I love ribbon and twine used like that :) Gorgeous. You'll soon be a seasoned tutor, like the rest of us, ROFL :)
