Well that was a lovely weekend away.
Saturday I was demoing at Emerald Crafts in Lyndhurst,
Oliver - the shop owner was very welcoming,
made a smashing cup of tea too!
The shop is crammed (and I mean crammed!) to the rafters with
craft goodies - dies, stamps, papers, knitting wool, art equipment...
and more and more!
When I finished for the day Mum and I took a little look around Lyndhurst,
it's a lovely village with lots of gift shops.
We found a nice pub/restaurant for dinner and then back to our hotel.
No late night raves and clubbing for us! ;)
Our hotel overlooked this gorgeous thatched cottage -
this is my idea of heaven...must start doing the lottery again.
The following day we took a trip to Lymington, another picturesque village.
And look what I espied... no escape from that boy of mine!
Before we headed home we took a trip into the New Forest,
it was wonderful and exactly as I remembered it as a child,
now that doesn't happy very often when you revisit a place!
It was beginning to look very Autumnal.
Hoping to return next year to demo - it would be good to go in the
Summer or Spring, although I think I would love the New Forest whatever the season.
I hope you all had a great weekend, I will be back tomorrow with crafty stuff!
Take care friends.
