Stained Glass Heart

You may remember I attended a stained glass workshop back in November, you can read about it here.  I enjoyed the workshop so much I just had to sign up for another.  Myself and my Mum signed up for the Stained Glass Heart workshop which was held on Sunday.  It just so happened that was my Mum's birthday, so it was meant to be, a girly day of crafting.

The house looked lovely and mysterious surrounded by fog and was a delight to look at as we drove through the park to find a parking space. You have probably seen numerous different shots of the house on my blog.  I love it, situated in the middle of the park, it is so beautiful.  I think I have just about seen it in pretty much all lights now, sunshine, snow, fog, night time.

The workshop did not disappoint and I was pleased to discover I had not lost the skills I had developed from the last workshop.  I am still a bit rubbish at soldering but I am hoping that is a skill that will come in time.  I didn't take any photos through the day this time as it was basically the same as before just with a different pattern.

Here are everyone's hearts finished all together at the end of the day.

When I got home I rummaged through my ribbon stash and hung it up with some of the pretty lace I bought last weekend.  It now takes pride of place hanging up by my bedroom window catching the rays.

It was a really lovely day.  I would recommend one of Mona's workshops to anyone, she is a lovely lady and the workshop I feel is great value for money.  I would happily do another one.  For those living further away than Chelmsford, if there are any workshops in you area, give it a go, I'm sure you will love it just as much as me.
