Hello ...... no Saturday Shopping List this week, as I have decided to take myself off the list. Hopefully charlotte will not be too upset with me. I have really enjoyed putting the list together each week, but I'm feeling a bit of pressure at the mo. Along with lots of moans and groans, my Dad had is angioplasty today, he is through it now, thank goodness, but oh dear what a worry these parentals are!!!!! (Just trying to think which is more of a worry parents or kids, hard to decide really).
I have a Fair coming up on 6th December here and have to get my finger out, as they say!
Have'nt really a great deal to 'show and tell' today, other than these cards I have been making.
Consisting of .....1882 ledger page, bit of worn crochet, feather and of course a button.

This week I have been mostly preparing for....ooooh....I can barely say it........ the Julie Arkell Workshop. Saturday and Sunday 15th/16th at Stroud, Gloucestershire.
This was the list I was sent.......
This is what I have collected you think I have enough stuff?????
I shall walk in like a pack horse.

Anyway, I shall let you know how it goes. Right, I must go and pack and fine tune the 'stuff' to take.
I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.x

I have really enjoyed your saturday picks but I did wonder if it was hard work. You always manages to find a lovely selection of things.
Hope your dad is OK with angioplasty.
I think you'll need the day off on Monday after that weekend workshop.
Have fun.

ooooo... I can't wait to see what you make with Julie Arkell. You'll probably take way too much stuff and not have what you really want when you get there - that's the kind of thing i'd do ;)

Hello Viv How nice to have found your blog, we have met and spoken a couple of times years ago now. I was asking you about getting a card agent for my stained glass cards. pop over to my blog and see if you remember me!
I went on a Julie Arkell course a few years ago at Ruthin when we lived in Shropshire, it was WONDERFUL and i now make some of my own creatures. She is such a lovely inspiring person you will enjoy yourself SO much. Jane
