What a weekend - Craft Stash and courgette!

What a busy weekend. My brother was down visiting the folks for the weekend from london (Bro, next time check WHICH weekend is Fathers day!) and it was great catching up and surprising my Dad when we picked up my brother from the station (though there were LOTS of questions from him as to why my mum was driving in the opposite direction to where we were meant to be going!).

I also finished my Elderflower cordial and my parents brought the batch they made along and we had a blind tasting - all very nice (Gussie's recipe is a corker) and I even managed to get a 2nd batch on the go at the weekend.
To top it all I also got my first yellow courgette from my veggie plot which my OH made into a thai green curry for tea - lovely!

I also went to a craft show at the weekend in Somerset, it was run by Sincerly-yours and was a great event. Debbie Moore was demonstrating and there was lots of goodies on sale that I have never seen in my local craft shops - needless to say my purse did not stay in my pocket for long! The lure of free tea and coffee meant my OH came along (complete with a book to keep him entertained) and I could leave all my lovely stash with him whilst off I went, like a woman possessed, to seek out more loveliness!

I will keep you posted with how I get on with the new products....

I also got some lovely post from the Crafts-Beautiful forum ladies for this months ATC swap. The theme was black and white and these two are from Lesleyanne (the cat) and Shelleyhope (shaker flower) - I love getting nice post.

I must admit I have not been crafting tonight (updating this blog and the crafts-beautiful forum- there are just not enough hours in the day!) as I had my new gym routine today-so I am shattered and a little bit sore! But I am sure its worth it (after all, according to the adverts, I am!
Happy Crafting
