Hello all. I am a Nursery Nurse working with special needs children within a main stream school and love it. I have worked as a NN for 34 years and wouldn't change for anything. I have always crafted in some way or another since the age of 7. At present I do a bit of patchwork and quilting, jewellery making and card making.

First time at NEC
Lilian and I decided to give the SECC a miss this October and go to the NEC instead.
It was great. It took us all day to get round the many stalls.
We took part in the Matthew Palmer watercolour class. I was very pleased with the result.
The next day we spent doing several workshops including a sunset pastel snow scene class with Jeremy Ford. This picture looked unachievable when we started but the result was fantastic. I have bought mounts and frames so I can put them on my wall.
We didn't buy much this trip as we were hand luggage only on the flights we booked. Quite a good strategy to keep pennies in our purses.
