What a fine Saturday Danielle and I had soldering on her kitchen table!
Here are Danielle's first little pieces:
Once Danielle had mastered the basics we moved right along to dobbers which are technically more challenging being circular! Here are the results:
A little Becassine and a family photo combination :
and then a celebration of brides from Danielle's family photo collection:
Finally, we had a joint effort for Danielle's lovely daughter Francesca - made from a fabulous biscuit wrapper from Florence which Danielle had stashed away - too beautiful to stay in a box - I prepared a large and a small dobber to frame the best bits and Danielle soldered it - how fab is that!
After soldering our socks off Saturday, Sunday was the time for a bit of R&R. Danielle took me to Petersham Nurseries where they have lovely plant and lots of designerly gifty stuff which is a joy to behold:
As well as lovely, lovely flowers and some ornamental cabbages - Danielle has some of each in her garden!
After an excellent Sunday Lunch with the family it was time to pack up my car and head home again. Next time we are going on a shopping trip round London so there will be no holding us back from bagging a bargain! Thanks to Danielle, Nick, Francesca, Christian and Finlay for a fabulous weekend!
