Run run as fast as you can!

It may seem that this blog has become all about biscuits- that would be no bad thing huh?- but it's just coincidence! This little chap was made at school by Anna. The idea is that he can travel off, run away, to explore and send a postcard back to the school. This term the children are looking at fairy tales- and this way they can use the Gingerbread man to bring in a little geography. So if you have small children, or not, and live somewhere other than Kent in the U.K I wonder if you'd be willing to receive this little guy in the post and in return send a postcard to my daughters school? Please leave a comment if you think you can help.
I also wanted to share my latest sample for City and Guilds. I did a sketch of a shell and have part worked it as a black work design. I transferred the image using tissue paper which was a new technique for me. I wasn't expecting to enjoy black work particularly, but Loved it! I do like the back of the work, less neat! I needed to leave this part worked for assessment but look forward to coming back to it at a later date. I am now working on fabric manipulation which I am enjoying slightly less, I think this is because I needed to work in neutrals and you know what I'm like- I need a little colour in my life!

I'll send a postcard to Anna's school, email me an address. Does the gingerbread man then need to be posted to someone else? Fancy keeping the chain going, how cool! x
