Photo overload and a Last Chance List!

I'm actually a little scared to start blogging again as I have so much to catch up on it's a little daunting!  And when I went to upload photos to put on here I had 575 on my phone!  Don't worry, I'll only post a few but which ones!?

Well, we have had three weeks of great Summer Camp in Shetland with children from all over the islands.  Then Shetland was host to the Tall Ships, which was really great (although the weather was a little chilly!)

It was then my sister's wedding so a mad preparation week of crafting (who am I kidding?! It was great!  I had to craft through the day, which meant my long suffering and amazing husband looked after our boys for nearly a week!)

The big day was lovely, I got to see all my family at the same time (last time I was on the mainland was May 2010) and got caught up with some great friends too. 

My sisters Lydia and Naomi on the Hen do.

My aunt Esther decorated this cake (my Grandma made it).  Awesome!  She takes orders...

My sister Lydia and I (Grandma made the dresses too!)

(sorry no photos of my fabulous sister and brother in law on my phone, check out my facebook page x)

After that we had some lazy days in Northampton, including a workshop with my first mainland downline Amanda (who is also my cousin's wife) and had a lovely evening, where I was very inspired by so many of her samples and ideas and will possibly CASE several if not all of them!

After that we travelled to York, where we had a few family days together. 

The Shambles...

The Roman walls...

At York Castle Museum, the blade is very old and still sharp! Hmm...wonder if they know what they're doing?!

Then a few days at my inlaw's home near Inverness.

So now I'm back, rested, raring to go with next month's classes and last chance list workshops!  So very exciting.

The Last Chance List is a fabulous list of great sets and accessories from the current catalogue that are retiring on Sept 30th.  They are unavailable after that and sometimes reduced!  It's only for a month so check the website on Sept 1st or email me. 


I'm planning to hold classes on each Weds evening at 7pm on the following dates:  Aug 31st, Sept 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th (tab at top with more details to follow shortly), with a last chance list workshop on Thursday 8th at 7pm.

Please please let me know asap if you would like to host as I can fit in around you and it means you get all the freebies (and possibly even more goodies than usual as some things may be reduced!)

Contact me at or on 01806 522482

Thanks for visiting me, let me know you were here x
