My First Ever Lin Brown Class

Wow what a fabulous weekend we've just had with a double helping of Lin Brown classes.  On Saturday at the first workshop we made a variation of the above.  If you fancy a go, Lin still has places on another class she is holding, you can find all the details here.

So we have just been given our kits and the first thing to do was choose our colours and paint our frames.

Left back to front - Jax, Lin S, Jacqui
Right back to front - Helen, Janet, Emma

Lesley and Jacqui on the case.

Lin B giving a bit of helpful instruction.

Then everyone got stuck in and was well away.

Having fun laughing and joking, even though we were apparently quiet!!!

Lin explaining about the next steps.

Lunchtime and the lovely Jo popped in to see us.

Followed by a rummage through the mdf bag of bits and pieces.

We were soon back to it and out came the chocolate!!!

Jax and Helen standing up on the job!!!

Right then Lesley, where does that piece go??

Emma - After deciding the layout, sticking on the doors

Janet - Checking out the placement and layout

Lesley - Does this look okay there or shall I move it to there??

Jax - sticking the doors on

Helen - Putting her compass together

Jacqui - All finished - great crackle

Lin - Adding finishing touches of treasure gold

And finally mine!!!

In the evening Lin B had booked a table for us at the American Diner next to the Travel Lodge we were all staying in.  We were joined by Gabrielle and Andrew, Jax's hubby.

Me, Lesley, Jacqui and Lin

Day 2 will follow in another post!!!!!
