Hi everyone, I have some bits of news. Ballinameela Art Club meet every Wednesday night from 7.30 to 9.30. Everyone is welcome, come along, have a cup of tea and see what we're at. We have a group of painters who meet every week and in September the crafters will be back to keep us company again from the second Wednesday in September. It is all very informal, you don't even need to bring anything along with you, see where you would like to sit in and do a bit, if you like it come back next week, if not, no problem. Most of us are going to go to the American Tea party being held in the Community Centre next door on Friday night. I'm hosting a table with Janice, it'll be lovely, for those of you who haven't been to one, you're more than welcome. The host decorates the table and provides a main course, usually consisting of cold meat salad, and then desert, tea and coffee. The Committee in the Community Centre are hoping to do this every year so we need to set a high standard this year to get the ball rolling. Janice and I will be bringing a bottle of wine or two so if anyone wants any more than that they are more than welcome to bring their own. There will be background music to give a nice atmosphere. Rumour has it that babysitters are being booked to stay very late on Friday night as most of the tables are going to settle in for a late night. It only costs €10 and all proceeds go to the Community Centre, so a good idea all round.
Janice and I will be getting home to bed early however as we are attending Yvonne Tune's class in Kilkenny on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to a nice relaxing day with the ladies, catching up with some people I haven't met in ages. It promises to be a lovely day. We will bring any deserts left over from the night before with us to share to help get the creative juices flowing. I'm looking forward to looking around Marion's shop, I think I might be a bit low on some things! ha ha, as if! but sure it would be rude to go there and buy nothing! So some nice things planned; I'm really looking forward to them, give me a text or call on 085.2801937 if you want any details on any of these happenings.
Happy Crafting, Midi.
