WOYWW 209 - At The Crop

Hello all welcome to another WOYWW - it is so nice to be able to put faces to some more of you now after a fabulous day at the crop last Saturday - once again, a HUGE thanks to Julia and Jan for organising it all - and to Gordon, Shaz & Doug for doing lots of running around and work on the day. Julia, I am sorry,there are lots of pics here!!

As promised in my review here  (hope you forgive the link Julia!) here are my photos from Saturday - they're not very good, too much sun through the windows has over-exposed some of them
 Diane, Mary-Anne and Laura
 Mary-Anne and Janet
 Dolores (Cardarian)
 Cindy
 lunchtime!

Sam (Hettie) and her amazing lace making
 my fabulous ATC's  - from Dolores, Cindy
Shaz, Zoe
 Janet, Donna
Kyla, Sam
and these in the mail, from Elizabeth, Nikki
Jo (Jozart)
Jo (Twiglet) and Shaz in Oz


i have also done my "homework" - card sketch kit in the goodie bag we brought home..

I added some prima flowers, the rest was in the kit.

Looks like you all had just a wonderful time - what fun. I thought maybe this week would be kind of a let down after all the excitement last week, but I am loving all these ATC's. What an amazing variety!! So cool. Thanks for all the lovely pictures...it's kinda like we were there - at least in spirit!! Have a great week.

What a fantastic time it looks like you all had and thank you so much for your photos it really helps putting a name and face together. I couldn't make it across the pond it was a tad deep in some places for me and the swim a bit far. Maybe I will get there for another crop one day.

Great ATC's too.
