Fun at the Fling!

Have had the most lovely weekend, yesterday daytime I ran childrens workshop at Chelmsford Museum making stuffed owls and felt flowers, (all the children and staff were very lovely). Then straight after I went on the The Fling - Chelmsford's very own festival of assorted amusements. I met lots of other like minded people and other local creatives. It's so nice to know that there is actually a market for that type of event in Chelmsford - here are just a few of the things we tried..........

Claynation - modelling clay with the Hive Artists, lovely to meet some of the artists there, here's my sister Alie modeling her owl:

And my erm, patterny thing :-)

It makes Chelmsford look so beautiful, colourful and exciting, it's like it comes to life for the festival.

At the emotional baggage - I sat at the emotional cripples parking bay for a little while!

We made stuffed animals at the Make Do and Mend tent - Ian perfects his sewing on his rocket! (I made a brown flowery moomin!)

Alie and Katie's animals, very proud!

Ok, really not an attractive picture of me + bump! but this is for Cherry Ann Hall - I sat and was drawn by Ian in her Essex Girl chair! And what a lovely chair it was! Shame I can't say the same for Ian's drawing!!
Wish I'd taken more photos really, as there were so many quirky fun things there, late in the evening there was a beautiful fire garden. Can't wait for next year!
