Good afternoon all , how has your week started? Ok , I hope.
What a busy few days I have had since we last had a catch up. On Thursday I went down to the NEC with a couple of friends and we spent the day walking, talking, and oh yes, spending some money. We certainly had a few bags of goodies to carry home, and our train journey was fun. A little packed but the bottles of wine helped.
Then on Friday , I drove down to join Barbara , Dave, Paul, Jayne, Lisa and Heather , ready for an early start on Saturday.
The Clarity stand looked fab and we were all soon ready to go, when crafters were in and signing up for the free Make and Take,, within a couple of hours every single slot had gone..and we could have filled more
Everyone went away with a gorgeous piece of art in the form of a coaster.
And they all looked so different
I must admit at one point I was playing and made myself a little snowman..( from the snowflake plate )
At the end of the day Paul needed to relax his shoulders
Then in the evening we went to a most wonderful bonfire , organised by Norma, now there is such a kind and generous lady...so much yummy food, and great fireworks too..
Sorry, I was too busy taking it all in, so this is the only photo I took...grrrrr
Fingers crossed Barbara may blog some more...Dave is the one who captured the evening .
Soon it was Sunday and time to get names onto lists, and on with the day...
At one point we had an empty chair, and I heard a young crafter say to her Mum, that she would love to join in. Her Mum replied that it would be too difficult...so I asked her if she would like to join us. Isla joined in, took to it and at 7 years old was my youngest crafter of the show..
She loved it,
And I have a strong suspicion that Father Christmas will be delivering something special for her..
More gorgeous work ladies....
I time just flew...and it was so good to catch up with so many friends...and to meet new ones.
I arrived home at 8-45 last night..and still had a contented grin on my face...
Today has been about walking the dogs, catching up on some house work and now I am on to getting some projects made for Saturdays workshop.
Thanks for popping in,
Take care all,
Much love and hugs
