YOU'VE GOTTA HAVE FRIENDS.....
And I do! It amazes me that lovely deskers are willing to drive such long distances to come and eat cake and chat basically! It was so lovely to meet a few new faces as well as welcoming old favourites :-D
The whole day was wonderful - it was great catching up with everyone. Especial welcome to Kathy K, Margaret (Glitter and Glue) and Erika whose first meeting it was. There are a whole load more pics on my previous post...click here if you want to see them.
Because such a lot of time was taken up cooking (!) I haven't been that prolific when it comes to crafting. I needed to make one more doggy bandana for Reg, a labrador:
And so you find me cutting out yet more Christmassy fabric. There's a mug of ginger tea, my mobile cos I'd just texted a friend and the feather stamped images that Helen did for me at the Crop. My sewing machine had been dumped there because I had to clear the dining room table in order to feed my guests!
I wonder if Reg will like this combo?! Lol.
I'm constructing a grotto today in the school where I used to work and decided to run up a quick string of bunting...
I'm just cutting the triangles out with pinking shears and am not going to line them - it's just to hang up in the room where Santa and his Elf helper will see the little ones. That's a quick job to do this morning before I head off.
Margaret (Glitter and Glue) came for tea on Friday evening and brought me this gorgeous little cottage with a battery tea light inside - it's so sweet!
I haven't fixed the ridge tiles back down but you get the idea - thanks Margaret, I love it!
Hope you're all keeping safe and warm in this very chilly snap, it was -5 this morning!
Have a great week :-D xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
