On a personally note some of you shall already know this as you may of you follow my personal Facebook page. That I joined Slimming World back in January this year. As I wanted to do something for me and it also helped improve my energy and health. It was a brand new group which I thought would be good as we where all new to the new lifestyle. I set a target well 4 targets since I started and have been at my last one since last November so very happy Ive been at target for a year. S i am going to enjoy this Christmas but not go wild with too much Christmas goodies or chocolate. Ive got two dinner to attend this week along so its going to be difficult but we shall have fun.
I have also moved house during the year so settling in a new place, ready for new adventures in 2020.
Wow what a busy but great few weeks we have had. We enjoyed our weekend away to join The Quirky Quilters Group for their two day exhibition. With a stunning range of different quilts. We have shown a picture of the room of quilts. There where several other stalls apart from us attending to add to the whole weekend. With Fabric, leather wool and applique templates or bunting etc as well as a raffle, sale table and a demo table of sashiko, EPP, and skills on a sewing machine It was very busy all weekend and we met some lovely people.
On our return we had a quick repack for an evening at Happy Patchers Quilting Group as they had an open evening with special guest Wendy Gardiner who wrote the last The Greatest Sewing Bee Book. Another great evening, Tuesday was to repack again and get ready for Wednesday afternoon were we spent at Sturminster Marshall Craft fair at the village hall.
The following weekend was a busman holiday I along with my friend and craft demonstrator Karen Clare we helped out our friend Angela Dearlove with her first big show at Create It in Kent with her Whimsical houses, which have been on Hochanda ans going to be on there again in July along with make and takes and workshops. It was a great show and we all enjoyed the experience.
We have some exciting new here at LaceyMays Haberdashery but it shall have to wait till next time as we need to get items complete and the pictures taken to show off our new project.
Meanwhile have a great crafty bank holiday weekend if your not working.
