Another Beautiful Sunny Day

Hope everybody is enjoying this beautiful weather, Jessie's 18th Birthday Party is tonight, will try and get some pictures if I can get her to pose.  Sarah is going over to help Pauline (our eldest daughter) with setting things up and then coming home and loading her car up ready for the big day tomorrow, and as they have forecast another gorgeous day hopefully there will be a good turn out for the county fair.

I also had an email yesterday from Devon County Council asking if I would like to attend the Grand Western 200 Festival which will be held near Tiverton at the end of May, but I am going to decline this as it is £60.00 a table if inside and £30.00 a table if I take a gazebo and have a stall outside but then there is petrol on top of this and will I have enough stock as I have two other fairs booked for May, Sarah and I were calculating that I would need to take at least £120.00 to break even as I would have to buy a gazebo as well, shame really but I can only do so much and would rather have my health than the money.

I met our new neighbour yesterday and she seems very nice and is a crafter so it will be nice to get together although she does different things to me, she does mosaics, healthy dog treats/biscuits, cards and sewing.  I have made a card for her which Alan posted through her door yesterday, I do hope she likes it.

I put wink of stella on the flowers and butterfly to give it some sparkle and the image is from an old PC Crafters club that I belonged to and they are no longer around which is a shame as I bought lots of packages from them and some of them are gorgeous.

Am off now to make some soap and will catch up with all your blogs afterwards but I have to get this made as it takes 6 weeks to cure and want to keep my stock rolling.

Love to all
Enjoy your Easter Break.

Love Alison xx
