My Open Day

Hi Crafty Friends

Well, it was a massive project, but my 'craftery' (aka the conservatory) is now a proper useable space.
I had an open day last Saturday, with crafty bargains, a make and take and my lovely friend. Maureen did sterling work manning the kettle.

Thanks also to Wendy, for loads of help (mainly involving heavy loads!) and also to the builders (M. Jakes) for some excellent work, and for helping out with really heavy lifting.

Thanks to all my lovely crafting friends who could make it, I had a really good time, and hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.

here it is, nearly ready

as you can see, lots of items for sale

Most of these storage units are also for sale, so I'm hoping to get a bit more space for crafting tables

This is a super sunny spot for morning coffee

And here are some of my visitors, doing a lot more nattering than crafting!
When it got full, I was too busy to take pics

My lovely OH built this for me (over many years), it just needed a bit of finishing off by the builders. I am so proud of what he did, and pleased I have it, as both a memorial to him, and the start of new things.

I'm looking forward to a lot of crafting in here.
