I'm lucky enough to be doing my placement with my great friend Helen at Nelly's Treasures and today was my first day. I'm doing a mini blog-within-blog about my experiences both to help with my report and so that others might know what to expect from a placement.
Today we were based at The PrintHaus, where Helen does her printing. There is a really nice community kind of atmosphere there and they run workshops and things at certain times so that everyone can have a go. Also they run Snapped Up Market, where I shared a stall with Helen once and started out my crafting life many moons ago, so I can testify that that is very exciting indeed!

Then I did a bit of observing Helen doing some more printing (red this time) and then I did a bit of ironing. And I thought I was rubbish at ironing but I'm not at all.
After lunch I had to work by myself a bit, firstly cutting out imagery with little scissors to be made into brooches, which was a bit fiddly but looked really good and then threading drawstrings into drawstring bags. And that was about it for the first day! What was also really great was that we listened to Radio 6 Music, which I'd never heard before and I thought that was pretty darned good.
