WOYWW 335 Full of crop photos!

So, we went, we ate cake and chatted, drank some tea (or coffee) and chatted and ate more cake... then there was lunch and more cake... a normal WOYWW crop, on a lovely warm sunny autumn day in Burbage
Some crafting even got done!  Hopefully I'll be forgiven this photo-rich post

 I travelled "light" and compact with some supplies.. always hard to know what I'll want to use, always end up taking too much of the wrong thing, and forget that one ink pad or stamp set...
 the hall looked fabulous ready for a quiz night.
Kyla made use of the stage to lay out her quilt for pinning..
 I did some work on a journal page, and also made some masterboard backgrounds for Christmas cards, although I seem to have forgotten to photograph those, and this post is already long enough  so I'll leave them for another time!
 a crowd gathered round Dolores' (Cardarian) beautiful quilt helping her work out how to do something or other (as you know I'm not a seamstress of any kind!)
It is truly gorgeous, Dolores!
Kyla busy pinning her quilt layers together
 Chief cook LLJ and Mary Ann catching up with a good natter.  Shaz's hat suits you Jan...
 Diane and David, Fiona all working away.
 It was wonderful to see Shaz (and Doug) - Shaz, you looked so much better than I feared you would after your ordeal. Hope you had a safe journey home.
From the bottom, Lizzie (you are no newbie now and it was lovely to meet you) Cindy, Doug, Shaz, Margie and Debbie
 Couldn't miss grabbing a pic of Shaz in her witch's hat.
 Diane, Dolores and David - great to see him actually crafting with us!
Fiona and Lisa Jane
 Cindy (who very kindly gave me a lift each way) doing some paperfolding making Christmas decorations
 Debbie and Julia having a good chat (told you there was lots of chatting)
and Kyla, now trying to sew her quilt together!

Thanks go always to Jan for the fabulous lunch, (and Fiona for the now traditional lemon drizzle cake!) and to all of you deskers for making such a great occasion.

Let's do it again soon.... lol!!

I'm not playing this week, but wanted to stop by and see what everyone was up to at the crop. Looks like you had a fantastic time, too. So many projects, so little time. I sure love your page you made and look forward to your masterboards, too.

Looks like lots going on those quilts are wonderful looking. I'd have to ask more questions then give advice myself or my advice would be in the form of questions would you be able to do this?? lol Great to see a few guys getting into the crafts my DH will only do crafts if it includes power tools lol
Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki ???

What a fantastic day out, Helen - great fun seems to have been had by all! One of these days I really must get to one of these crops - actually find out what they are all about... I think it would necessitate a weekend stay somewhere (oh, shucks, meals cooked for me!)as we live a good way away. Hmm - need to think on that....
Thanks for visiting - glad you like the photos - yes, I was particularly pleased with the rushes as well!
Take care. God bless.

Lovely photos, Helen! It's good to put names to the faces!Sounds like you all had a wonderful time! I can't work out whether that open bag is a suitcase or a large pencil case, LOL! Probably somewhere in the middle! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #31

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you took some lovely photos, as usual. I saw the Christmas backgrounds so I can be witness that you did more than most, frankly! I was trying to explain to Debbie how amazing her photo frames were; apparently I can only do that with hand gestures!!!! It was short but lovely...you have no idea how much it means to us that you put yourselves out to come.

Elizabeth said...
