Our Very Last Workshop Last Saturday!

Our very last project is this early 1900s little German style shop, offered in both 1/12th and 1/24th scale.
We must start by thanking all the lovely ladies who came to our very last workshop last Saturday. What a super bunch of creative ladies you were and we hope you enjoyed it. And even though the day was tinged with a little sadness for us both, it was still a fab day!

By the end of the day there were some pretty awesome chequered floors in various colour combinations - you were so imaginative! 

This one was painted in a silver and pale grey colour - simply stunning!

This was probably the most versatile project we had ever undertaken and everyone had a choice how they configured their shelves, whether to have a central door, what colour to decorate this in, etc. We are so looking forward to seeing photos of everyone's finished projects! 

It never ceased to amaze us how everyone starts off with the same kits and instructions, but after each person has interpreted the project and added their own creativity, each one always looks different and completely individual. 
The Bicester Avenue Garden Centre has been such a successful venue for our workshops these past three years.  Apart from the new massive tables they have recently acquired which in turn gave us more space to spread out, the staff have been fantastic, so friendly and helpful....and the cake is fantastic!!

Thank you so much to everyone's generosity for our raffle on Saturday, your donations raised a truly wonderful £36.00!! So along with the lovely donations from all you ladies who came to the June workshop, we are delighted to announce that we will be sending a cheque for a total of £52.00 to Breast Cancer Now, on behalf of you all. Over the years we have raised several hundred pounds through our workshop raffles and other sales, so thank you everyone. What a lovely lot you are!
