This weekend saw us meet up for the WOYWW crop, this time in a new venue with some new faces (and several not so new that have now become good friends).
The day started the usual way, coffee and something sweet and lots of chatting (many ladies crafted......I did not....I talked....A LOT!!!).
This picture came from the lovely Jan (a full report on the day can be found on her blog here
It was fabulous to meet the new croppers (is that the term? Not sure, but it sounds good!) and to catch up with everyone. Jan and Julia did a grand job organising it, Doug supplied us with hot drinks all day and Fiona kindly made the two of us a veggie curry and supplied one of her now famous lemon drizzle cake (seriously, it is delicious and does go like hot cakes!!).
As I said I didn't craft (I talked) but I did do a lot of die cutting and admiring of Shaz's dies and organisational skills and stamping of Helen's grumpy penguins!
The usual 'donations' table and raffle went well and I managed to donate some stash and also get some great storage bottles and tubes, stamps and a couple of inks and just over £100 was made for the Salvation Army Christmas collection.
It was a long but lovely day. Catching up with everyone and admiring everything from Dolores fabric stash, Helens amazing journal, Fiona's perfect stamping and folding, Mary-Anne's IT skills turned into crafts, Livvy, Morti and David cross stitch skills to name just a few!
Just wish we could meet up more often (hint hint!!!)
