"Weekend Haul"

Hello Blog friends, followers plus anyone who just pops by.  Hope you are all well and have enjoyed a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for your comments on my Lace collection .  Since that photo was taken there has been loads more added.  The spools I wind my Lace onto are made from Loo Roll/Kitchen Roll centres.  I cut multiple Classic Circles with SB Dies stick them together to give very firm ends.  Stick the circles on the the roll ends, decorate, once dry I wind my Lace on.  Keeps it tidy, save ages trying to unwind the one you want from the jumble.
I am not long home, what a fantastic time Hazel and I have had this weekend.   A beautiful drive up to Aberdeen on Friday evening, lots of fun with Sue Wilson & Julia Watts at the Papeterie, Aberdeen, Saturday & Sunday.  Sue and Julia were lovely, wonderful and talented ladies. Sue had the full selection of her new Dies ...... Oh!! decisions, decisions!!!!
I have quite a few on my wish list but here is my haul from the weekend.  In actual fact it is not really bad, one of the pots of Gilding Flakes and a Mask are Hazel`s.  Hazel bought some Dies which she said she will try out but would not have time to "PLAY" with the Mask and Flakes.     Hazel has to work long hours with the girls she is Nanny to, they are now off school.   She lent me her Flakes and Mask so that I could have a play with them. 
Here is my haul:-

There was lots and lots more I could have bought.
I am going to try some techniques we were shown that I have never done before.
Once I have mastered them I will "treat" myself to more goodies for my achievement's .....!!!!!
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate that you take time to do that.
Till next time
