Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Craftathon 2017

This year it was my turn to host craftathon. It started on Friday afternoon at the Nags head where Jan, Catherine and myself had a lovely lunch. We went on to the centre where we got set up and met with Kathy and Cherry.

After some crafting we walked a few steps down the road for a lovely meal at the Spread Eagle then gathered for drinks at the beefeater. The stay at the Premier Inn was not without its trauma but lets not go there...

We eat at the beefeater on Saturday night, again not without its moments but it was still a nice evening. We met up for coffee, chat and last minute crafting on Sunday morning but Catherine had headed off to comicon to meet one of her idols :). Thankfully we weren't there long as a childrens party was going on next door and there was a guy in the kitchen in his underpants apparently..... Anyway I had a great time, hope everyone else did too and we are already talking about next years!!!

Thanks ladies xx
