Thanks to all involved - Killusty Crafts last Saturday

 A massive thanks to Lorraine  (and also her mum, Richard and her dad) for making sure everything went smoothly on Saturday. And I am lost for words to thank all those who came along, especially as so many of you travelled so far to get there. I appreciate that more than I can ever say. If I was just a little quieter than usual on Saturday it's because I was so touched by all the really lovely, thoughtful people that I spent the day with. I know that those of you who had never been to Killusty Crafts before certainly found a treasure trove in the heart of the country!

Musical chairs!

 A very welcome buffet - Lorraine and her mum had gone to so much trouble, not forgetting Richard who made the sandwiches:)

  1. Gorgeous cards Ruth, wish it hadn't been so far away! How did you cut the deco trellis die,as I love the card with the bohemian papers.? Also which border die did you use across the bottom, it'd be so handy for finishing off! Gemma ��
