It's all very well spending ages planning what I'm going to teach, it's another thing getting the ideas out of my head to create samples, and another thing again asking the students to trust me and give things a go...

And for the adult learning class, I seemed to spend ages last week mixing up paint (and gave myself blue fingers, natch)
The painting'n'sticking was still a bit damp for people to take home at the end of class, so I took it home to dry - it all looked amazing on my dining room table!
I don't think everyone was convinced with being asked to do this, so fingers crossed the stitching that will follow this week will reassure!
I topped off the week with the obligatory trip to this place:
Mixed feelings - I was very tired, but there were some excellent exhibitions and I took (fewer than previously) photos to use in class, and found a bargain box of 20 sponge brushes for £3.75!
