WI Crafty Christmas Fair

Yesterday, was our WI's (to which i am treasurer) annual crafty christmas fair , 
crafty because we have hands on crafting, 
so craft stalls for you to buy pressies and crafting for you to sit and have a play, 
of course there are the refreshments with soup for lunch, tea ,coffee and cake
(of course cake, after all it is the WI)
we haven't had the final tally yet but we think we raised about £300 after expenses
so a great day all round, 
here are some of the crafters having a play.

Sewing Retreat....fantastic!!

I have been waiting a year for this and this weekend just gone i went off with 7 other ladies to a converted barn in the middle of no where, (phone signal was non existent) for a sewing retreat, 

normaly on these occasions not a lot is produced but feeding off everyone else we were all very productive, and this is my collection of makes

oh my what a fantastic weekend, great company, great food, the start of some new friendships and a continuation of others, some of the ladies i havent seen in about 4 years (as we tried to work it out lol)
on the way it was chucking it down and bloomin cold but the sun did come out each day after a frosty start not that it mattered i only stepped outside once to take the rubbish to the bin lol.

what a fantastic weekend, thank you kirsty and the rest for a fab time.
cant wait for the next time.
