Had a lovely day today at the Craft Barn in Lingfield, Surrey at their annual Extravanganza, where they invite - this year 28! - demonstrators to delight us.
I got soaked on the walk to the station here in Sutton but after that it was ok and the sun (as usual for this day in the calendar) came out! I met some ladies at East Croydon who I often see, up from the Isle of Wight and we chatted on the train.
Once I got to Lingfield, I headed to the shop..... oh dear! Well most of it was on my list!!! Knowing from previous years just how busy the shop gets once the demonstrations get going, I shopped first... sometimes a mistake because you "want" loads of other stuff later.... here it is!
Had lunch with Anna and Kirsten who I had arranged to meet (we are twitter friends already - although I'd met Anna at Ally Pally and are both lovely) and sat outside in the sunshine... which was lovely after the earlier rain. Anna brought some gorgeously wonderful chocolate brownies.. yum yum yum!
Lin Brown and settled in.... she surprised me with this beautiful gift for my birthday earlier this week. How cool is this?!!!Those poppies on the front are a fab Memory Box die (now on my wish list!)
Anyhow Lin, it is fantastic, thank you SO much.
It was lovely to meet Kay and Alison again, too. Also nice to finally meet Neil Walker (of Neelz Expressions) and Jo F-y. Leandra was also there in fine form with paint and wonderful techniques.
Right. off to whack a pizza in the oven and then it's Andy Murray at Wimbledon in the tennis... laters!!
Will be playing with some of my new stuff tomorrow!!
