You are invited....

Hello friends
I hope you are enjoying our Summer, I think it is safe to say warmth 
has arrived - hoping it will stay for a while as it is lovely to wake up and open 
all the doors and windows.
Not my window or view unfortunately but I stumbled across this photo and thought
it was perfect.

Today an invitation to the Charity Event (I finally got around to typing this up!)

I know many of you live too far away but I promise to share photos of the day.
I've mentioned a make and take - it is possible that I will have these available on my blog -
nobody should feel left out!
Sally and Janice are coming along to demonstrate stitching on cards -
if you follow their blogs you will already know how stunning this is.

More raffle prizes arrived yesterday - Hobbycraft have now donated and
my author friend Carole Matthews is also contributing a prize.
The raffle table is laden with so many goodies!

Take care friends, enjoy your Sunday.

Morning Christine,
Sounds like your event is coming together nicely. I would love to come, but I'm already committed to a
strawberry tea event organised by a friend. This is being held in aid of Parkinson. Why do these things always clash? I will be with you on the day in spirit on the day.

My kit arrived yesterday-many thanks. I wish I was able to visit your shop next Saturday but its too far from sunny Southport for it to be possible. The list of companies donating gifts is growing nicely-well done.

I have a view like that from my windows Christine, but I live next door to a farmyard with a beef herd, so if I open my windows, my house gets full of flies!

Janice said...

Hi Chris, what a lovely day it has been today. I sat out in the garden just reading my book for some of the day. Went in for a salad lunch with a glass of rose wine followed by watching Andy Murray win Wimbledon. Had a refreshing shower and am now in my craft room catching up with emails etc and of course, checking out your blog. Janice xx

Janice said...

Hi Christine

Yes, the Summer has definitely arrived! We've enjoyed eating all three meals in the garden the last few days, and the BBQ has been working well!

I really hope to be able to come along on the 20th as we return from a 10 days away in the New Forest and the Isle of Wight on the Friday, so am looking forward to the visit :-))
Sounds like everything is coming along nicely. You've all been working so hard. I hope Elliot is doing well.

Hi Christine, what a glorious day it has been today and it is my son's 35th birthday too.
I am sure you will get lots of people to your studio for the charity event but I will have to settle for second best by seeing the pictures on your blog.
Hope you enjoyed your day.
