WHERE DID YOU COME FROM, WHERE DID YOU GO,
WHERE DID YOU COME FROM, COTTON EYE JOE?
Another mad week in the life of this Welsh gal! Mostly taken up with cooking, arranging, setting up and attending of the WI Barn Dance :-) As well as making chocolate brownies for 80 people (and I'm on a diet, that was tough!) I was tasked with sorting out the raffle.
Hence why my desk looked like this last Friday:
I'm a great believer in a few quality prizes and it never hurts to gussy them up a bit. This seemed to involve getting everything out onto the workdesk!
Neet, this lot of ribbons that you passed on at the last Crop has been invaluable - thank you!
All ready to go.....
The WI Committee got together (with their other half in tow) and set up the hall on Saturday afternoon:
The bunting I made looked very pretty draped across the hall and was complemented by the gingham table decor the other girls had done. It's a lovely village hall, I spent a lot of time here in my youth up in the library where my mum was librarian and at youth club. Both my brothers played a lot of snooker here too!
View from the stage.
Mary is exceptionally good at set dressing!
It set the scene perfectly!!
After a really good feast (the girls excelled themselves) the dancing began, to the lovely music of Coppercaillie, a seven piece band.
Everyone joined in through the night, it was brilliant fun and even better when things went wrong :-D The chap in the white and blue stripey polo shirt is my brother Steve who was down for the weekend - we danced every single dance!
The caller was fantastic and we did all sorts of different dances....
Here's Steve in the middle with other chaps being Angry Rams, would you believe - this dance had us all in stitches.
We just laughed all night, it was a really lovely way to raise money for our WI. And people have already asked if we're doing another one!!
Have a happy crafting week xxxx
