Quick post...

Good evening, hope everyone is enjoying the weekend ! I'm just going to share a few photos of the craft retreat I went on  2 weeks ago. It was fabulous and we left for Brownsover hall hotel on the Friday and sadly left kicking and screaming on the Sunday night as we didn't want it to end lol.......
This was organised by the ever so wonderful Susan Jones for the 2nd year running. Susan owns crafty bunch where I go to craft club. Now a lot of regular ladies went and also some others from far and wide. Here's some snaps of the hotel.

My room was in the converted stables

The crafty room....in full flow

We made a wonderful frame book on the Saturday with Sue.... And on the Sunday
a fabulous shrine with Fran Westmoreland. Will share photos of the finished projects after I've finshed tweaking them. The food and hotel was just fabulous.
It was amazing and thanks so much to sue for all the hardwork she put in.
No crafty projects to share, I've really been struggling with time and mojo lately. Have spent half of today doing college work before I fall too far behind. 
Take care thanks for popping in, 
Hugs Elaine xxx
