Christmas Workshop Day

The last Christmas pudding is made, the last Santa stuck in place.  Well not quite, but everyone has been really busy at the Christmas Workshop Day today.

The last person has just left, carrying their goodies, both what they got for their projects, and what they bought after the classes were over.

Everyone had a good time and spent nearly as much time chatting and laughing as they did crafting.  But that's what it's all about, having fun and enjoying yourself.

And of course there were the muffins, freshly baked this morning.  There was never a problem getting everyone to stop for a cuppa and a muffin!

The October classes will be posted shortly.  We are both knackered and heading home for a cuppa and an early night.

We're having a Blonde Moment!

Since it's my birthday on the 4th of October I've decided to have a blonde moment.  Or rather, I'm having a Blonde Moments sale.
