What fun we had today at Dalmally Station , the tea room serving delicious cakes both on the platform and inside in the ‘pop up’ tea room  Daffodils in pots filled the air with the scent of Spring.

What do you do with a gaggle of serious studious students taking time out from their Phds and studies ? Play with soap and water and wool ….with a definite outcome! A three mtr whale later has been created by my visitors in their home town and we made felted fish to dangle in its mouth ( for  adding during the later parade )

So academic rules out the door and hands on a new skills …i think you will agree they had tremendous  fun , created something useful, learned a new method of stress theraphy (fulling )DSC_3532    laying out the design
