leather

dear sue

Thanks so much for inviting me around to your place to make concrete pots.  It is was great to do craft at someone else’s house and lovely to catch up with you.  And in terms of the concrete, I am very inspired!  It didn’t make as much mess as I imagined.  Maybe the fact that you mixed it in a used flora margarine container rather than a concrete mixer helped?!!  Now I am anxiously waiting to hear how our candle holders and planters turn out!  How long will they take to dry? And will the tealight candles actually fit in the holes when the concrete dries? It’s so exciting.

And also … thanks so much for the leather. When I got home I dug in to my wallpaper stash to make some beads.  And threaded them on.  And cut the leather the right length for a necklace.  And how great does it look?  I am very chuffed.  It’s EVEN BETTER than I imagined.

I have enough leather to make four necklaces like this from the supplies you gave me, so please thank Mark for finding it.  He’s obviously got a thrifty eye!

OK, I had better go and get on with the jobs I was meant to do.  Less crafting, more cleaning …

Thanks again. See you at school!
