Tooling up with Linda Williams

Hi there Presh!
Thanks for popping in.
Oh boyo! Linda Williams is in the building!
I told you she was the Grand Maester, didn’t I?!

And what did I tell you about her book??
Isn’t it brilliant?
Just being able to photocopy all the various pattern maps and use them underneath the parchment. There’s nothing this comprehensive anywhere else.  

here’s a little taster gallery from our other clever teamies, 
using a selection of the patterns and tools used in the book.

Who would have known that you can do so much with that little wheel!! OH has said Father Christmas will get it all for me !! ordered placed. Hope you & Tina feel better soon.

  2. Brilliant shows, all of them. Poor Tina, but what a trooper, and hopefully the giggles will have done her so much good. And Linda ..... what a natural she is on telly. I really cannot wait till the parchment retreat to learn even more. The book is on order, of course. Now, I hope you can take a little time to get that ear problem sorted before it causes permanent damage. Take care of yourself. xxx Maggie

  3. Happy Birthday Gail...it's mine today too!

    Loving the shows and had to smile when Paul was 'told off' by Linda, hilarious! Sitting back patiently waiting for my order to come (honestly I am being patient... all good things come to those who wait etc!). So glad I set the recorder for all the shows, Linda is fab it's so nice to have her on our screens. Hope your earache is soon better Barb and that Dave's nasty cold/virus/cough is improving rapidly. Take care one and allxxx

    Oops - nearly forgot the DT, once again fabulous artwork from you all. You can tell you really enjoyed working with the new book and all the new plates from both Tina and Linda. xxx

  4. Fab shows as always and great material, i.e. Linda’s book. As hubby is Welsh, not that you’d know it as he came to Oxford when he was 2, I made him watch and he also appreciates all the work. I hope you get your ear sorted, hubby is out in sympathy with you as his started playing up today ..... If it’s not one thing it’s another. I’ve got to catch up with Paul and Linda show. Learnt a lot so far so thanks very much ! X

  5. Loving the shows, both great presenters. I wonder if the gallery could be reinstated on the new website? I really miss it for inspiration. It would be a great place to showcase all our talented designers? Just a thought 😊

  8. The shows have been fantastic. Linda seemed very calm and came across very clear. So many useful tips, I need to remember them as I have to wait a while for the book. Going to have a play tonight while it is all fresh in my mind. Thank-you for increasing the interest in this beautiful craft. xx

  9. Hi Barb,
    Absolutely brilliant shows today. Linda was so calm and inspirational. Just her voice is very calming. I did laugh when she kept saying yours was better than hers! I've learned so much already and can't wait for my book to arrive. I'm pleased Linda showed us how to use the wheel tool as I've had one for years and didn't have a clue what to do with it, but now I know. DT samples were fabulous once again and Paul did really well too. Hope your earache doesn't get any worse. Love and hugs, Alison xx

  10. Indeed a wonderful array of shows. So quietly and skilfully executed by Linda.

  11. Gorgeous, gorgeous cards. They are so beautiful, every one of them. The team need a great big round of applause. I will have to save for this book looks amazing but hubby not working at the moment due to illness for the last 7 months so I’m watching the pennies. I think this will be my first purchase when I have a few pennies to spare.

  12. Wow, wow, wow! I loved the shows and the samples were absolutely amazing. I am stunned at the talent in the design team. Linda’s book looks great, but I am not quite ready for it yet, as I need more practise. However, it is definitely on the wish list for next year and I can’t wait for the day when I can produce work half as beautiful.
    Well done to Tina for battling on through her cold. I hope that she is feeling better and that your sore ear is better also. Linda did so well and was so good to watch. All in all a great Groovi weekend. Thank you. Annette x

    Loved, loved, loved everything about everything! Ordered everything! Now to sit back and wait for my four pending orders from the last ten days. I am most eager for Linda's book as I can't wait to play and learn.

    Thank you, all of you, for the shows, the offers, the samples, the hints and tips. It was a blast.

    Love
