A Lot of Natter!

Hello friends
As mentioned as a post script on my blog yesterday - yes the Tool n'One has
arrived - I don't think I've ever been so relieved to see a parcel!
They have all been posted out to those who pre-ordered but I promise another
batch is on its way (good job too as I haven't got one!)
I've received a few requests asking me to let crafters know when they are
back up on the website - not a problem, just drop me an email.

Elliott was a huge help in organising the sending of them.
He looks tired, he isn't sleeping quite so well at the moment (not me overworking him!)

The Knit and Natter yesterday was a great success, met lots of new lovely ladies.
Cakes were a plenty and I promised them all they were calorie free!
Well....wouldn't that be nice!
 Here are the first group who arrived (my Mum serving cake),
at one point we ran out of chairs!
Thank you to those who visited and I very much look forward to seeing you 
again - in fact next month!  We decided this should be a monthly event so check 
back soon for the list of dates.

No crafty project today I'm afraid, I spent the day in the shop joining knitted squares!
The sun is shining and we really need that for the Bank Holiday - 
I hope you are enjoying your long weekend - what are you up to?

Take care friends.

It's been dull and damp here so far Christine, and I have a chest infection, so I'm staying in bed for a while. At least I can keep in touch with everyone via my laptop, and not spread the bugs around. (And cyber cakes ARE calorie free, so everyone here can tuck into the leftovers. So glad your knit and natter went well.

It seems a great day was had by all Christine, not surprising when you are tempting everyone with such a gorgeous array of cakes! Hope Elliott feels better soon, give him a big hug from me. Anne x

Hi Christine. Pleased to hear the knit and natter went so well. It's good to see that Elliott can still share that wonderful smile even though he's so tired ~ many thanks to you both for getting 'the Tool' out to us so quickly.Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend. Hugs (plus an extra big one for Elliott!),

Hi Christine. Thank goodness "That parcel" arrived. It sounds like the contents came in and literally got posted straight back out again : ) Great team work (sorry your struggling with lack of sleep Elliott, as an insomniac I am used to it but you must be really fed up with it! I hope you get back to your normal amount very soon.)
So glad that the Knit and Natter went so well. It is great to see a pic of your Mum, you both have the same lovely smile : ) Oooh, gorgeous looking calorie free cakes....I wish : ) I have a basket of ironing to do then I am crafting : )) Have a great time. Take care.

Hi Christine, your knit and natter day looked fun and a great picture of your lovely Mum. My naughty postie didn't bring my tool-in one yesterday so roll on Tuesday, I will be stalking him. Hope Elliott feels better soon and you all enjoy your Bank Holiday.

Hi Christine. So glad it was such a success yesterday.
Elliott does look tired but he´s still got his cheeky smile.
It´s just an ordinary weekend over here but I´m off to a Fair this afternoon run by an animal charity to get some funds.
Have a good weekend everybody.
Love Val in Spain x

Hi Christine, It looks like it was a really fun day yesterday. Knitting and cake - lovely.
As I was unable to join you I did so in spirit and I have some more squares to send to you. I'll pop them in the post on Tuesday.
Like Mrs B my ironing basket is beckoning :( but I'll put on a good DVD and plough my way through it.
Enjoy the sunshine (it's very grey and overcast here)

Morning Christine, so glad the charity day went well. Everyone looks like they were having fun. The cakes look gorgeous and from past experience I know they taste wonderful.....did get my dress yesterday (thank god for Phase 8 stretchy dresses) so no cake until wedding is over!!.
Hope your sleep pattern gets back to normal soon Elliott.
Get well soon Lacelady.
Can't wait for the tool in one to arrive. Thanks to Clan Emberson for working so hard to get this out to us.

take care all..xx

Hello Christine
I think Elliott needs a glass of warm milk, and a story.... I don't care how old he is.... its the thought that counts! lol
So glad they all enjoyed the day and the cakes look amazing, clever Mum!
Take care
Love Marg

Morning Christine,
Pleased to see your ladies having a great time, lovely photo with your Mum, delicious cakes too.
I know how Elliot feels I don't sleep very well, I tend to read when I wake in the night, usually sends me back off.
Have a good day.
