Hello there. Time for another peek at other Crafters desks from around the world. Want to know more then visit the lovely Julia's Blog!!!
So I did manage to finish everything for the weekend of crafting, even had a few hours to chill out on Friday before packing up the car, collecting one of the ladies and heading for my friend's house!!!
Had a glorious weekend! One lovely lady described it as magical - how lovely of her.
After setting up we sat outside for drinks and nibbles it was a beautiful late afternoon. Then we began the first project. Made a box to hold four note cards and a card to go with it in case anyone wanted to gift it. I had also made a gift box with a candle holder, lavender candle and hand cream inside. Everyone seemed to have fun. Then a lovely supper with an Italian theme - yummy.
Some ladies stayed the night but I returned home.
On Saturday I returned at half past nine and we had a delicious breakfast before starting the next project - a Mini Album and two layouts using Memories and More from Stampin Up. I was very nervous about this as I'd not done anything like it before- but they loved it- said it was good to try something new. We sat outside for lunch and again for Afternoon Tea!!
On Saturday evening we went outside again for a drink and nibbles and then had a Spanish themed dinner. We all went home full, tired but happy! :-) I forgot to photo the ladies with their completed projects. I will share at some point when I have photographed mine.
Here is my work space tonight ( Tuesday) I have cleared up most of the stuff I took to the weekend sessions but needed to make a card for tomorrow's Card and a Cuppa.
Some photos from the weekend - sorry if too many
Goody bags for Friday

I am shattered today as I went on a trip to Upton Cressett Hall with the WI. Upton Cressett Hall
We began with a wander around Bridgenorth. Then it was off up a very, very narrow lane to get to our destination. Eventually the coach driver could proceed no further and we had to walk the rest. I was not amused as my joints and knees were not happy. Two ladies could not walk it but the owner of the hall went to the coach and collected them. It was not ideal though.
The Hall was lovely and in a beautiful setting but I was disappointed that we were shown very little and some of us felt that the owner went through the motions of showing us what he did and really wanted it over but had to suffer it as they need to promote the place. Rather sad really.
Had lovely cake and tea before departing - though there was quite an uphill climb and I am just not fit enough really :-(
Anyway a bit long I know but hope you have enjoyed. Looking forward to visiting everyone tomorrow. ( Wednesday )
