Another busy day in the life of your touch of craft. Up at 4am! and on the road before 5am we certainly know how to live. We arrived in Hinkley before the sun was up and then it was all hands on deck as we had to be ready by and yes you got it we were! just, phew. Very pleased to say we had another good show and back home in Bury by 7pm.

bye for now

Our trip to Leigh

Hello everyone out there,

We have a card class on October 26th, 6.30pm start. We will be making a paper poinsetta out of punches to embelish a card and at least one other, that is still in my head! should be a fun evening.

It has been a very busy week for us, as Amanda and I went up to Leigh in Lancs on sat to do a show. We left Bury at about 1.30pm got a phone call from John about 10 mins later we had forgotten some important bits and pieces in John's car so we turn round back to the shop, at last we are on our way! We arrived at the hall with 25 minutes to spare before the hall closed for the night! So unloaded the car in record time and just dumped it in our allocated spot. We had the evening to ourselves so went to a Toby carvery that we had seen on our way in and had a lovely meal, little did we know at that time it was the last food we would eat until late the next evening.

We spent the evening in the room sorting out about a thousand little jars of embossing powder having spent hours and hours sorting them into a unit the previous 3 days and hammering a front on them so they didn't move! I think it was the 6th attempt at loading the car that did it, the cover popped off!!!!!!!!!!!!! We know how to live it up. hehe. We had a super show and met some lovely people and look forward to seeing them at our next show up there.

We arrived back in Bury at about 10.30pm straight to bed and ready to start the new week..
