My Bessie Mate came down, from Norfolk, to take me to our usual visit to Alexandra Palace [Ally Pally] on Saturday. But, it didn't work out that way lol Going over Detling, on Friday, to meet up with 'Dragon Queen' [Lesley] I mentioned what a glorious day it was, and what a shame, to waste the Saturday, fighting our way through London traffic, and spending the day jostling in a hot, crowded place.
After a lot of discussion, it was decided we spend the day at the Craft Barn, and, then, off to Wakehurst Place, for a picnic. We met up at the Malta Inn at Maidstone and met Dragon Queen for lunch, then off to Sevenoaks to meet Kathy, another crafter, who has ducks ! Lovely people.
Saturday proved to be the most relaxing day - for me ! A long drive for Nicks, but thank goodness she doesn't mind driving. A visit to Craft Barn was great, from our point of view ! Spent as much as I would at Ally Pally, but able to look at the stuff in comfort. A cuppa in the cafe, a play with a dabber, and a decision to go back for more lol
The evening spent getting my new lap top up and working Thankyou Nicks x
Then the biggest news of the weekend
A final amount for MacMillan was announced, from our HugBinders event in March
A whopping £4005.43p. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still a few bits to sell, but Nicks is putting them on ebay and having a car boot sale.
A fantastic amount raised by so many wonderful people. John would have been so proud
