Crafting in Cumbria

Good morning all, 
I do hope that you had a lovely bank holiday weekend. 
It was our Cumbria workshop on Saturday , and 
we had a play with some fabulous Stamps from Lavinia Stamps. 
Although we had a couple of ladies on holiday , we still had a full class 
as we had a couple of new ladies join us. 

I couldn’t get everyone in the photo...

Our first card was a nice quick warm up card...

Just to get everyone into the swing 

Then after coffee, a design that took a bit more time....

But look at these beauties...
Fabulous work ladies and gent 

After lunch it was time to get into the Christmas spirit..

If only I could have kept them all, 
That would have started my Christmas cards off a real treat...

Soon it was time for tea and Sheila’s homemade cakes..

And before we left we made our ATC’s and did our swapping..

I love the way my little collection of artwork from my friends is growing..
I love to look at them,,,
Each one individually made..
And so special. 

It was funny driving home,,,
I had to remember to stay on the M6
And no drive on autopilot and end up in Cheadle Hulme,,
The journey only took an extra that was ok..

On Sunday Sheila and Graham came down for the day, even though we 
had rain all day , we still had a wonderful time..
And we cooked a Sunday roast...
(Poor Sheila, she saw me two days in a row!!!)

Yesterday we picked up the little man and he has been on a sleep over...
At the moment he is still fast asleep..

He loves the bike/stroller that we got him for his Birthday ..
He is growing up so fast..

Just time to put some washing in , 
Before he gets up..

Take care all
Much love and hugs 
Jo. xxx
