This week I held my second biggest class ever with the lovely ladies of the Jambusters WI. With 70 members it took some organising to get them all to make a card, but it made for a fun evening with baskets being passed down the tables and everyone having the opportunity to chat with friends. Everyone made a card and it went very smoothly with one exception. I hadn't remembered that WI ladies go 'off piste' at times and I hadn't anticipated the first lady to stamp on one table using the green ink instead of the purple to stamp her flowers!! Luckily I realised in time before the stamp with purple and green ink turned to a nasty brown blur colour and all continued well.
Of course the WI are renowned for the their tea and baking and being such a big group this surpassed any expectation you might have had for tea and a biscuit. I have to confess I was brought two delicious cupcakes, both different and both homemade. I had to eat both, it would have been rude not to.....
Thank you ladies for your very warm welcome, delicious cakes and the fun you shared in making cards. I look forward to seeing many of you again soon.
