Big day nearly here..........

Hello everyone, wow I can't believe it's over a week since I last popped in to say hello.
I've had a busy week stocktaking at work.....although this only goes on for one day it's really tiring......I can remember a time when I used to go to the pub after we finished now I'm just ready for my bed!!!
Lots going on at home as well & to be honest I've just felt really lazy!

Today I had to force myself to get moving as some of the housework hadn't been done for over a week so I really needed to get out of the arm chair...... I've been trying to finish my hand warmers, I finally finished last night so I could share them with you today but I forgot to take a photo......oh well there's always next time :(

So as you all know tomorrow is my first meeting..............

I know, I know........I've been going on about it for weeks but I'm excited & also a little nervous.

What about it no one turns up???
What about if loads of people turn up???

You see I'm quite shy & don't really like talking to new people, I have to at work but that's different because they're paying me to do it!
But in real life I'm a bit timid!!

At the moment about 25 people are due to come....(OMG!!!) .....but I know some people will pull out at the last minute.

So this afternoon I've been packing all my things to take......

ahhhh biscuits....better not forget those!!
Tablecloths because the tables are covered in paint & I want it to look pretty.
I've also had to pack needles, wool, books & there's a lot to take.

While I was packing up I thought I'd make so badges to take......what do you think??

So then I thought if I'm selling the Cloth Magazine then why couldn't I sell some things of mine, well at the end of the day I've spent hours doing this so if I can make a few quid then why not!

So I'm taking a few craft bags, some pretty covered note books, corsages & some Cath badges.
(oh & some more biscuits!!)

Talking about Cloth Magazine have you checked out their web site yet? Click here
I can't tell you how happy that made me!!!

So I'm all packed & ready to go.....thankfully I'm getting the 7.15am bus to work tomorrow so no one will laugh at my very bright trolley. It's the first time I've used it as OH will NOT let me take it shopping!!!

So that's it.....wish me luck!!!!
