Elizabeth, Jan, Julia - the start of it all and yours truly.
What a great time we had and were welcomed with open arms by the lovely Jan our hostess and her husband Gordon (not forgetting G3 of course)! Julia was as mad as ever, she makes me laugh so much, along with Jan they are a perfect duo. And then, our Elizabeth down from Ayr on holiday, the gentlest lady you could wish to meet and her EM, Alan - who I think might even be a closet crafter, he knew what Distress Inks were for goodness sakes! Impressed we were. :) And not forgetting Julia's husband Barry who was so patient waiting to be fed after a long hard day whilst we were gabbing and trotting around Shopkeeper Gal's craft shop.
Oooer, I almost forgot, I've seeeeeeen Queen Julia's craft room for myself, you would love to be let loose in there! I did remark, whilst sitting in Jan's garden later in the afternoon, that 'I'd love to do a supermarket streak round Julia's craft room'. Oops, of course I meant a 'supermarket sweep' to gather up all the lovely goodies she plays with - but hey, ho - as always, I got it a bit wrong!
Phew, what a fabulous day - I was totally whacked, not from real tiredness but just the excitement of it all.
I took Friday Feast with me for dessert - recipe will appear
Thank you ladies (and gents) for my truly Golden Day!
