"The other Gift Bags"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  How wonderful it is to be part of this great sharing community.   It never ceases to amaze me the amount of talent that people share so willingly.
Thank you for calling to see what I get up to.  I am here to answer any questions you have about things I have used or how I have used them.
Thomas, Robert, Mum and Dad are all fine after a good nights sleep. Boys off to the great big park in Cupar Angus this afternoon with mummy and some friends from school.  Because they live so rural other than playing in their garden they have to be taken to friends or to places like a park.  Here in our little village we do actually have a park that they can go to.  Very small as far as equipment goes but plenty space to play ball games.  The land for the park was donated by the man (long since dead) who owned the village which was built for his workers along with the school.  The school, a long time closed, now lies empty.   Although it still looks sound I am sure if sold off it would have to be demolished.  The villagers did try to raise money to turn it into a village hall.  Unfortunately there was not  enough of them and they could not get any help from the Lottery Fund.

These Gift Bags are the last of the ones I made for sale in the Tearoom.  Elaine will be back over the weekend and the Tearoom will open for business on Monday.  Will leave it a couple of days then pop along with them plus the other bits and pieces I have done for selling.  All money being saved for  going to Birmingham in November for the Hobbycraft Show.
Hazel (Baskets of Joy) Kate (Culliesocks) Elaine and myself are flying down on the Thursday afternoon we are booked in at the Airport Travel Lodge.  We will do the Show Friday, I know a few others have booked into the Hotel, really looking forward to meeting them.    We have decided if anyone is interested we will be staying within the Hotel on the Friday evening if you want to join our "Blogging Bash" you are more than welcome.  It`s a while yet I know, just to keep you informed if you do want to join the "Happy Hoppers"

I have a Tutorial for these bags back 4th November 2012

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate that you stop by 
Till next time

  17. Hi Patricia, Gorgeous, gorgeous, gift bags, they will be snapped up pretty quickly methinks. So glad you are doing so well for your 'NEC Fund' ha ha, you will need a jumbo jet to bring all your goodies back in.
    Have a lovely weekend, I'm shattered as have been on an all-day distress inks and markers class, by the time I got home I had a massive headache, think it's a combination of all my concentration and also the heat, fingers all inky now ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
