Rain definitely did not stop play at our annual picnic and games but it did see us retreat inside.
After a very civilised “picnic” sat around the tables we got to enjoy all the different games that people had kindly brought in. Who knew we had so many people with a competitive streak? Or so many hidden talents? I think we even shocked ourselves; I certainly had never realised how good I am at throwing ping pong balls into egg boxes!
A big thank you to everyone for coming and an even bigger thank you to those that brought games to amuse us all.
Wishing you all a lovely summer holiday!
See you in September…
From one extreme to the other – torrential rain in May followed by an unprecedented heatwave in June! Thank you to everyone who managed to find the energy to join us for a wonderful demonstration into making silver clay jewellery.
Tonight saw us enjoy an marvellous demonstration from Hilary Bowen who showed us how to produce a beautiful ivy leaf pendant from start to finish. We were all utterly inspired by some of her stories behind the pieces of jewellery she has helped people make during her workshops too. I am sure that lots of us will be going away and giving it a go or signing up to one of her workshops.
Thank you very much Hilary.
Thank you to all our Disparate Housewives WI members who made it through the rain to support our Annual Meeting tonight and to our two new visitors who we hope to see again next month. We’re pleased that the promise of Prosecco and chocolates tempted you all along!
A wonderful evening was had by all today as we either learnt a new craft from a fellow member or brought along a UFO (unfinished object) for some much needed attention.
Thank you to all our Disparate Housewives WI members for putting on a great show this evening!
Tonight saw us doing ‘Bollyfit’ with Shailly. From the experienced dancer to the complete beginner; everybody had a lot of fun!
Christmas has come again to Disparate Housewives WI and it’s time for our ‘festive florals’.
Everyone had a lovely evening making either a table centrepiece or a door wreath whilst sporting their own festive jumper, hat or jewellery. This month’s ‘pop up café’ definitely helped to get us into the Christmas spirit too.
Thank you very much to Louise for an inspiring evening showing us all how to improve the look our gifts with some fancy wrapping. We all enjoyed having a go at wrapping our own bottle of Champagne to take home too.
