What A Lovely Day................
What a lovely day we had at our "Let's All Play In The Little Back Garden Workshop" yesterday ( Sunday) at Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire.
Kits were unpacked then much creativity ensued accompanied by much happy banter and the little miniature components gradually took shape.
Hedges and old fashioned birdtables were constructed from an array of materials, old toys gradually emerged from bits of card, cardboard and wood.
By the end of the afternoon, miniature tents were being pitched and miniature newspapers were being folded into the shape of little pirate hats for teddies!
We must add a huge thank you as always to the generosity of the ladies attending, we all managed to raise between us £28.00 in our Breast Cancer Campaign raffle on the day. Congratulations to the lucky prize winners who won a variety of rather lovely prizes, all purchased from Waterperry Gift Shop!!!
So there you are, another project over and already we are looking forward to the next one......
