Six crafters, a cottage and a cake

Some time ago six crafters got together for a weekend of fun, craft and food. Jean, Gail, Julie, Hannah, Andrea and me. We stayed in a delightful cottage near to Skipton. We visited the nearby craft shops, The Stamp Man and Samuel Taylors at Embsay to checkout the goodies and of course we parted with our money!
Here's a display of the lovely projects Jean and Gail prepared for us. We made money boxes, hangy things, cards and a mini album. We crafted day and night so don't think it was all fun. At one point we had collected all the lamps in the cottage and arranged them around the table. Nothing was going to stop us crafting!
Jean, Andrea and Gail were determined to finish that book before retiring to bed.

Did I mention food? Well the food was delicious especially the cake and it was lovingly prepared by Jean. Thanks Jean.

We enjoyed ourselves so much we're going again in November!
