6 + 7 My kitchen all set up for my Tapestry Crochet Workshop before my lovely crafty peeps arrived, and then everyone busy hooking away.  It was a busy afternoon, I think everyone had fun, it was great to meet some gorgeous crafty ladies, I have a lot of room for improvement in my teaching skills, but I have to start somewhere and while I was way out of my comfort zone, now I know what to expect, I think I can do better next time! :)
