We were all quiet to begin with as we studiously followed Ann's instructions but by the time the chocolate biscuits came out (brought by Sandra - another Sandra, not me!) we were loosening up and getting to know each other...... I sat next to Holly who is expecting her fourth child, she revealed that she is a midwife and helps to deliver sex education in schools - I am in awe! how does she find the time to fit all that in and craft too? (staying up until 2am was the answer!)
Sarah, Sandra and Anita sat across from us and we all confessed to a little envy when Sandra told us that her husband had surprised her with vouchers to spend at the Craft Den before going to Hong Kong on a business trip!
We used Laura Ashley papers and stamps, adirondack dabber paints and inks and made lots of mess!
The chocolate biscuits soon disappeared, they were those gorgeous chunky chocolate ones from Marks and Spencers.
As you can see, the book is starting to take shape - it is unfinished as yet so I will give you a peek when its done. all I have to do is bind it, add ribbons and finish a few tags....I'll have to take a leaf out of Holly's book and stay up into the early hours!
