Phew! I’ve just about caught my breath after a busy Valentine’s day of card orders and bouquet making. I shall not be upset if I don’t see another red rose for a while!

This … Continue reading Christmas Fair Season

She’s a great teacher, giving clear instruction and … Continue reading A great creative evening
