Crafty Weekend

Well it was a foggy start to the weekend, especially as I was travelling to Melton Mowbray for the Scout Hut Crafters weekend.
Saturday was a quiet day as many had previous engagements. Well I say quiet, it did get a little rowdy when some ladies were nearly wetting themselves with laughter!

See the man in the background, well they were being rude concerning his drill!

I got this JBW design done, woo hoo I stitched!!
It is a gift for someone, I shouldn't show it but they won't know until they receive it!

Sunday was a bit busier

I have started to put together my Hexagons, this is my first group of seven!

We did a friendship exchange and this is what I received from sue, A gorgeous beaded fob on scissors and some fabrics for my friendship quilt! 

This is what I stitched for Sandra, Amitie Broderie Couture.
And made into a Bits n Bobs tray, there were some more goodies but I forgot to take a pic!

Polly gave me another bit of fabric for it the Friendship quilt 

And Lyn gave me three to choose from and I had to chose the cats now didn't I! 
I have also had some from Maddison, I forgot to take a pic.
Here is what i got in the Raffle, some Body shop Vanilla Fragrance Oil

And look I made a beaded bracelet, the lovely bead ladies did a tutorial, I am quite proud of it!!

 Lorna cooked some lovely food, she does for the weekend ones!
