Journaling in Cornwall

Morning everyone, I had a snow free journey down to Cornwall on Friday but was bombarded by humongous hail stones once I crossed the county line.  Amazing!  It's chilly dull and damp here but the bad weather seems to have blown out to sea so maybe we'll see some sunshine later. 
Our workshop yesterday in Bodmin was great fun and enjoyed by all :-)  We painted and stamped fabric, stitched our journal inserts, assembled our books and created fun covers for them before heading home with loads of techniques to use on other projects. Thank you ladies for a great day and enjoy using your journals. I'll be back down in May/June to host a weekend workshop so do keep an eye on the blog and FB page for dates and more info. 
Here's a few pics of some of the fabric covers 
  everyone crafting away - I love the bunting.........
 and some of the ladies with their finished journals 
Enjoy your Monday everyone, thanks for calling by and I look forward to sharing more crafty inspiration with you shortly.

  1. Hi Clare, first of all Happy New Year to you and all your followers. I haven't been around for a while as I've been bedridden since Boxing Day due to ongoing problems with my immune system. Unfortunately my body also carries the shingles virus and this time around it's been pretty bad. Fortunately I have been able to keep up with your blog thanks to technology and my wonderful tablet and I've loved all your latest projects. Glad to read that your journeys were fairly uneventful and that the class went well. Take care.

    1. Morning Margaret, Happy New year to you too. I'm so sorry to hear you've been unwell again. I know the pain can be so awfully debilitating from that virus. Sending you crafty hugs from a damp, dull and chilly Cornwall. Take care, enjoy browsing on your tablet and hope you're feeling a little better soon :-) Cxx.

  2. Love the photos of the ladies creating their patterns on fabric and their finished journals. Wish I could learn that and be in your class!! Glad you are having a nice visit with Annie too! We had fun at our crop this weekend as well, rained all weekend, cold too!!! Drive safely coming back home and oh yes aren't all the new Graphic 45 paper collections absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait for their release and I hope its soon!!! I have an order already filled out to give to my gal who orders our papers for her shop!!! The ideas are really going through my head so hopefully all will be out soon and I can get started!!
    Take care Clare, talk soon,
    Judy
