'retro stitch' @ carclew youth arts centre - the aftermath
Here was my half of the ballroom all set up and ready for my first class:
Let's just say it got messier and messier as the day went on, ha!
I think it all went really well - the kids were great and my assistant Jodie was amazing (she's a Graphic Designer, so had some fantastic ideas that really helped to engage the kids). I was so exhausted by the end of the day - luckily Anita had pain killers on hand at the end for my headache :P.
That night I attended an unofficial Yelp event at Steven ter Horst Chocolatier - oh my, chocolate comas for everyone!! Highlight was definitely the salted caramel chocolate tart, paired with my choice of chocolate ... salted caramel, of course! Hey, I like to be consistent ;) If you're in Adelaide, make sure you visit his shop/cafe/dessert bar on Unley Road.
I have an (enforced) annual leave day Friday, so will be spending time looking at my next tapestry homework assignment and finishing off a couple of infinity scarves. More about those later (when I've taken decent pictures!).
Oh, and Bella from Bellatextiles has asked if I could join her giving weaving demonstrations at the next Bowerbird Bazaar on Sunday May 5 - it's all go around here!!
