I was lucky enough to take a couple of workshops at the weekend with Donna Downey in Birmingham, I was so pleased as I missed out last year because of work. It's been quite a while since I'd been to Birmingham so found a lot of changes (for the better) around the Bullring.

Donna and her Husband Bill are both so friendly, and were so very kind to invite me to dinner after class.
We really did have some giggles in class when Donna misheard a conversation regarding babywipes and dado rails - I'll leave that to your imagination :) Makes me think of the quote by George Bernard Shaw: "England and America are two countries separated by a common language"

Next class was Speckled Nest, so much easier than I thought and loved using Golden fluid acrylic paints.
