A rainy crafty day in Greenwich

 My friend Claire wanted to make some more lampshades for her new house, after our success at the lampshade making workshop, so we decided to make a day of it. She is lucky enough to live in Greenwich, London (jealous, Greenwich is great!). So we met up an Biscuit Biscuit, a ceramic painting cafe. It was a very rainy Saturday so it was quite busy in there but we managed to find a table in order to get on with our painting. Claire was very organised and had a Mondrian-inspired design for her plate (you can kind of see it to the right of the picture). I didn't have an idea of what I wanted to do. I chose the star bowl and had fun painting and sponging it. I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes out.

We then went back to Claire's house to make the lampshades. She had already picked out the Paris fabric and another fabric she got from John Lewis. I met her new puppy Heidi (cute) and then we got to work (via a lemon cupcake!). We have now made four lampshades together and I think they look great!
