A "Fascinating" Time

I will be drawing again very soon: it was surprising to me to discover how much I need my own space to be able to dream and work. My friend is staying elsewhere now, so have my drawing table, etc back! I am also currently trying to find out what time of day is best for me for painting and drawing: something I had not thought about previously, but has been prompted by a book I am reading.
In the meantime, Saturday was spent at Craftacular in the delightful company of Deadly Knitshade and The Fastener from Stitch London. As well as eating wonderful heartshaped raspberry tarts, we also learnt how to make a "fascinator". (This was especially timely because I will be attending a wedding next weekend.) The photo shows my less-than-conventional creation: the lovely Amy from the make lounge taught the workshop well, so that it was both fun and successful learning.
