Happy St Georges Day - and what a sunny one it has been!
Well, it does look like we are coming to the end of a very long Winter. Everything is starting to green up and the blossoms are coming out on the trees. Beautiful!
It was so lovely over the weekend, GC and I managed a couple of hours out in the garden - our first spring in the new house - and I received my first bit of suntanning, I looked a bit like a beetroot when I came in!!
It would be so lovely if it lasted, unfortunately it was not as warm yesterday but I have just looked and the forecast is good again for the rest of the week.
Anyway, in celebration of the warmer weather I have set up the SUMMER workshop brochure. We have got all of the usual classes and Liz is coming in to run a Home, Sweet Home Canvass workshop in May.
How do you fancy having something like this hanging in YOUR home and all crafted by your own sweet hand? Well, here is your chance! You can even pick your own colours to match your decor AND get the choice of two different times during the day.
Saturday, 11th May
10 - 12.30 or 2 - 4.30
£25 per head
all materials and refreshments included
Booking is essential (and places are going fast)!!
Now, as usual, the first Saturday of the month is Nicky's Colouring in class - packed full of help with the using the Promarkers - but now with the added joy of using the Flexmarkers. So if you fancy finding out how she achieves this:
Come along on the first Saturday in the month, 2'til 4 - playtime with the colouring pens, we all big kids at heart!
But, before we get to all of this fun, we have got Cate's Crop this Saturday. So if you fancy a play with your scrapbooking - just imagine, a WHOLE day of playing with paper and embellishments - rock up at 10am and enjoy yourself until 4pm.
Full details of all these classes are in the Summer Workshop Brochure.
So there you go, lots to tempt you. But, in the meantime, there is lots of more serious stuff ....... those of you that have been coming to the shop over the past few weeks will have noticed that the Turnpike Road has been in the process of being dug up. Well the fun is continueing ..... aparently we have another 10 days of fun. So, for the rest of this week you can get to us from the roundabout on the A4. Next week, you will have to come to us via the Fir Tree Lane end of Turnpike Road.
I have been promised that PROPER diversion signs are going to be put out on the roads, but I have to say that I am not going to hold my breath (that could be dangerous!).
Now that bit is the bad news, the good news is that I have been told the Turnpike Road will be open over the weekend - hurrah!
To celebrate the sun shining and the Turnpike Road being open and the Bank Holidays that are coming up and, well, just about anything else you can think of, we are having a
