What a super day I had last Friday, involving a trip up the coast to a gorgeous wee fishing village called Johnshaven, where I was "teaching" a purse making workshop at Starfish Studio. Of course this workshop wasn't to make just any old kind of purse! The aim was to brush up on some stitchery skills and get layering, embellishing & embroidering, with a vintage/shabby chic theme in mind!
It was a glorious winter's day with the sun splitting the sky when I arrived.
6 lovely ladies had also come along- the perfect number to fit around the table which sat snugly in Starfish Studio ( also open as a treasure trove of gorgeous handcrafted goodness to buy!)

I think the photos say it all really....several cups of tea,one messy table and plenty of stitching and chatting..... my perfect kind of day!
Haven't the purses come out so beautifully though?!
I just love seeing the different ways people inject their own creativity into a project..the differ colours they are drawn to and effects they create. So fascinating and inspiring!
And this could also be seen with the inner linings of the purse too, where some couldn't help themselves but add a wee surprise pop of colour on opening!
What a lovely day indeed! Thanks so much ladies :)x
