I packed my basket
As I was going here:-

Louise had invited me over for a making day and she had invited others too. Amongst them was Sally from Red Robin who I had chatted to via Bloggy Land but not in real life. It was lovely to meet her and we had a super day chatting, sewing, making, sticking and eating CAKE. Have I told you I love cake and eat it far too often resulting in my body being too big for lots of my clothes. I also met Louise's mum and we had a wonderful time chatting away as if we had known each other ages. We also had 'things' in common. She was from the same area in Sheffield as my Dad, she had my Aunty Ann's book which her friend was in and she even knew K's mum and dad. Isn't it strange how you sometimes have common threads with people you haven't met before. I didn't take anything with me but I did have it in mind to make some hexagons to make into a cushion and that is what I did.
|Hexies in a row|
I hexed all morning (to Louise's surprise) and in the afternoon I decided to undertake some cutting and sticking to make cards using just a small portion of the vast array of vintage bills, letters, wallpaper, books and lots of other scrumptious stuff in the workshop. This is how they started
Lot of papers to choose from

A lovely relaxing day. Thanks Lou.
