Weekend Away and Winner

Hello friends

I'm back home after a wonderful weekend in the Cotswolds.
The weather was 50/50 but it is November and I've never known a dry birthday yet!
If you follow me on Facebook you will have seen my photos,
if not sharing here.  I went away with my crafty friends and
we stayed in the very lovely Three Ways Hotel, Mickleton
 for a chocolate themed weekend.

I had the big surprise of my room being totally chocolate themed,
I slept in a box of chocolates!

The door was cleverly painted to look like a chocolate bar.

Even the bathroom tiles and toiletries were themed.

We took a trip to Broadway to look around the gifty shops.
I adore the quaintness of the Cotswold villages.

We put our glad rags on in the evening for a very nice meal.

The following morning we went on a chocolate themed car treasure hunt,
back to the hotel for a hot chocolate and a cookery class,
chocolate truffles, mousse and pudding!
I intend to try out the recipes so will be sharing those.

Today is my actual birthday, I'm dodging the rain to do a little bit of
shopping and spend the evening with all my family.

Now crafty stuff...did you purchase a November Charity Kit?
This was the Note Holder kit.
If so it is time to check to see if you have the winning ticket.

And it is....

If you have the winning number please email me at
and I'll send out your bag of goodies.

Note Holder die is due back in stock again soon, these sell fast! 
If you missed this kit it is still available to purchase on the website here.

Take care friends, have a brilliant start to the week.
