This week is a look back to the first Autumnal WOYWW crop that took place on Saturday.
About 12 deskers met up and it was great to chat, exchange ideas and eat cake! It was great to see both Shaz and MaryAnne looking so well after their recent illnesses and we missed Sam (Hettiecraft) who was unable to make the crop.
I took my camera but was too busy eating Fiona's lemon drizzle cake (seriously, it was so good I had 3 pieces!!) to take any photos.
We made and exchanged Halloween tags (I only made a few). I made some mummy ones with googly eyes.
Tags from left to right are: Dolores (Cardarian), Marcie Lee, Debbie (Tattered Rocks), Bluebeard and Elizabeth (Alteredbooklover) and Lizzie J.
The stamp in the middle is from Shaz Silverwolf. I mentioned previously that I have been struggling to find a decent wine stamp and Shaz very kindly gifted me this one (it is made by Stamps Happen and is exactly what I have been looking for-a huge thanks).
I took my half finished quilt and between all of us I think I have got it sussed....just need some time to actually finish it!
It was a lovely day, full of laughs, catching up, coffee, cake, a great lunch some more cake and even a little crafting! We had the raffle and Jan was selling craft stash for her brass band so I bought a few bits and pieces (well, it's for charity, so it would be rude not too!!!!-amazing how we can enable our crafting addictions when we want to!).
A great day out. It is never long enough to catch up properly with everyone but I love seeing others craft in the flesh (Fiona's delicate hand sewing, Morti's stitching, MaryAnnes amazing wool creations, Debbie's finnibar inspired creations, Cindy's delicate paper folding, Helens journal and Shaz's colouring to name just a few).
