Christmas in July 2017

Hi all, sorry for the late blog, sometimes life gets in the way of fun, unfortunately.
We had a great Christmas in July, thank you for those that came, lots of chatting and laughter. Dilys, Christina and I showed everybody the amazing art work we did on a recent class with Helen's (Ross aka Lorna Blue) friend, Vicky Phelps drawing crazy birds and faces. Next time I hope you all join us because Vicky is an amazing teacher and Helen is a great host (yummy food).
Here are some photos of our great day and amazing Secret Santa gifts.
Bye for now, hopefully see you in August, have a great month,
Linda and Dilys
