Yes, I had my first taste of craft exhibitions here in Cardiff.. have I anything else to say. Not really!
Besides loving the fact that I had a chance to visit the new football stadium and the free coffee, the company I was with made the greatest highlight of my whole day. It seems to be a common complaint that if your into your yarn, these exhibitions are not for you.
I felt that if I were a card maker, bead threader or stencil stamper then this would have been heaven for me…. but alas, not a single strand of wool, acrylic, hook nor needle was to be seen!
Thank heavens there was a Hobby Craft store across the road that was still open!
I’ll not be booking to go again but thanks to the excellent company of the girls who came with us and thanks to June for organising it all with the craft club ,it turned out to be enjoyable day.
I did buy a couple of beads and trinkets as you can see and met some lovely people that fed my imagination without starving my purse!
But now to positive things, I have been creating goodies for Lynn again! A KINGSIZE blanket.
Its going to look fab, fresh and snugly. I’m loving the look of it so far.. what do you think?
Also my Lollo Bear… I really freaked when I run out of yarn but thank to Hobby craft I found some similar yarn to finish off his arms and legs. He’s so adorable with his fluffy eyes (we cant use glass or solid eyes on the wards as they are a choking hazard) Its a good match eh! And my fab cruet set which I picked up at the charity shop.. isn’t it cheery!
And now an announcement..
the 10th Of October 2012 is my Silver Wedding Anniversary..
So to my beautiful husband who has given me a fantastic time of being married .. to the man who can still make me giggle like a teenager and to the man who helped me make our beautiful son Alex, I wish you a very happy, healthy and jolly anniversary.
And I promise to try and nag you less… its official!
THESE ARE JUST FOR YOU RICHARD BUT THE IMAGE IS TO BE SHARED WITH YOU ALL
Silver topped jam centred muffins and kisses to you
