I suppose I'm not really sticking to the rules as this is technically not a real old story,but it tells a story of my days- so I can play right ?
It's been a busy busy time for me over the weekend.I've been out visiting an aunt who has flown over fom Australia today- she comes over every year - she is now 81 ( couldn't believe it when she told me today ).The main reason she used to come was to attend doll fairs over here and to go to the antique shops/markets to stock up on lace for her dolls. She actually used to pour the clay/porcelain into the moulds, fire them and paint them and then dress them.She doesn't do that now as the market has died off - but she visits her doll making friend.
So that was today - yesterday I was up bright and early with my tote all packed at 6.30 ready for the off to a hotel in Surrey called Branksome Place. I was going with Jane who comes to the Eclectic Keepsakes monthly crop that our friend Deb comes to as well.The day was run by the lovely ladies -Janice and Lorraine at Scrapagogo..I've been to a few of their weekend retreats and they are always extremely good.
We set of at about 8 o'clock as it was about an hour and a half's drive away - on the dreaded M25..
Anyway- we arrived safe and sound just as the day was starting.
The hotel was a weird mix of Olde Worlde and new hi tech.
There were four classes during the day - we had only managed to book three of them .
I haven't finished the first one so will show that later..
This was Kirsty's class.....
All in all- a fine day out.It went so quickly too.
So not technically a proper story but hope you enjoyed it anyway.I'll be off now and back to visit all your stories later..
