a new craft ?

Marzipan flower making ~ my 1st attempt at a rose

DH and i went to the local radio station today where they had a gardening exhibition, information about local allotments and whats on in local parks etc over the Summer, also local garden centres were selling plants to raise funds for "The Ruby Rainbow Appeal" The radio station celebrates it's Ruby (40th) anniversary this year and are sponsoring Rainbows Hospice as they are trying to raise £400,000 to build a new wing for older teenagers and young adults. It was £1 donation to have a try, how could i resist

The tutor was very nice and quizzed me on my hobbies as we chatted during the 20 mins it took me to make it. She's had a go at stitching but said she has such a dislike of anything to do with numbers and counting that she took an instant dislike to cross stitch !!!

Although i enjoyed it and am pleased with the end result I don't think i'll be giving up the stitching LOL
