Bristol Craftathon!


Well both Lauren and Wynneth made it to my house in reasonable time though Wynneth's journey was not without hold ups on the M5 and some bad weather too. I made them all a cuppa before we bundled Wynneth's hubby and Tilly the Wonderdog out of the door again so we could get on with the serious business of crafting . . . . except we didn't, for ages, preferring instead to just ooh and aah over each others crafting goodies! It took us rather a long time to unpack as both of them seemed to have brought just about everything they thought they would need over the weekend (except Bert!). We finally settled down after another coffee and a slice of delicious home made triple ginger cake (thanks Lauren for that) to stamping some images - although Lauren stamped hers on canvas. Wynneth had made us each a super little bracelet (mine had purple beads on it and Lauren's blue ones) - thank you Wynneth they're both lovely, as you can see from the photo of mine! So here you see Lauren and Wynneth in the state we spent most of our time in - chuckling! We've had a ball so far and now they've headed off to their hotel to check in and freshen up and Steve and I will pick them up again around 19:00 and we'll head off to our local Indian restaurant for dinner.

Tomorrow is craft shopping and then more crafting and perhaps we'll see Lauren's finished canvas - it's looking great. We haven't even plugged in our melt pots yet and that promises to be a bit of fun . . . . do check back for more piccies!
