Refreshments turned out to be a delicious mini buffet and the (Optional) Craft was to make these pretty Christmas decorations with ribbon and beads.(In case you are not sure, due to my ham-fisted attempts............they are meant to represent Christmas trees!)
I made the green one first but decided it would be a bit heavy for the Christmas tree so made the smaller one for the tree and the big one will go on the window......catching the light.
Might start collecting beads to make some next year, have plenty of ribbon already. The lady who taught us buys up bead necklaces from charity shops and uses those. She also told me about a charity shop called The Big C that has craft classes in Diss, she said it's beside the Original Factory Shop and Poundstretcher, I didn't even know there was a Factory Shop and Poundstretcher in Diss! but apparently its on a small trading estate just on the edge of town. Sounds as if it's worth a look........ ASAP.
Many thanks for comments yesterday, sorry about the bit that sounded moany and pathetic. I am really pleased with the kitchen, it is so well finished and will still be fixed to the walls when, as Elaine said, archaeologists find it in 2000 years time!
