Ally Pally and the result of my Giveaway
Hi folks, well I'm back from my weekend jaunt to Alexandra Palace at the weekend. I stayed overnight on Saturday with two of my CSQ buddies, Jo and Elaine. We rarely see each other, so this was a real treat for us. It was just a shame that the other part of the quartet, Lesley, couldn't make it to be with us :(
On Saturday, we spent the day mostly shopping, meeting a few of our friends from the Chocolate Baroque Guild and stopping for tea breaks. On Sunday, we managed to watch more demonstrations, which was great, as we picked up some great tips, especially from one of our crafting friends Linda Brown from LB Crafts. She was demoing Pan Pastels, which I have had my eye on for a little while. I am itching to have a go with some of these now!
In the afternoon, sadly, it was time to say goodbye to each other, and for Elaine and I particularly, knowing that we wouldn't see each other for several months now, it's always quite hard. We formed our other Blog as a means of crafting together, but our busy lives mean that it has been a bit neglected lately.
Now, onto the subject of my Forgotten Friday canvas. My OH very kindly drew a name out of the hat, or paper bag in this case! It was my namesake Judith. I have emailed Judith to let her know, so the canvas will be winging its way to her once I have her snailmail address. Sorry folks to those of you who missed out on this occasion. However, I know that I will be in this position on another occasion, so keep your eyes out for more projects that I will be offering out in the future.
Thanks for stopping by today, xx
