WOYWW - the Crop

I know I should save this for Wednesday, but there will be too many photos so I am doing it now...
I spent a lovely day with some WOYWW friends new and old - lovely to see some newbies coming, Erika and Margaret, it was fantastic to meet you.

Of course, there was cake, chatting and crafting.. then some more cake... and that was before Jan's gorgeous lunch.

 following Lauren's post for Paperartsy yesterday,I was so take with her idea of making a scarf for the monster, I had to have a go one one of my Christmas cards - great idea, Lauren, it's perfect.
 group shot, thanks to Gordon for taking this, Jan will have more on Wednesday...
 and I think for the first time ever, Jan had time to sit and do some crafting!!









so, it was a great day, full of fun and laughter and not a little cake, all of them were gorgeous!












I was gifted some atcs (I didn't even think about making/taking atcs this time...) but I will photograph those for Wednesday.
Thanks as always to Jan and Julia for organising such a fun day, to Gordon for the lift from the station this morning and Erika for the lift back tonight...

It was like visiting old friends. I decided to look at the photos and ignore anything else for the time being. I knew everyone by sight except for two people (not including Christine's husband). It was such a joy to see all these people I've come to know through their blogs and recognize based on their photos from crops or on their blogs. Thank you for posting these so quickly.
