This time, not only will I be seeing the lovely Louise and Miss Debs again, but seeing Caroline from gran plumley who was also at the granny chic day too, This time I am going to a workshop with another bloggy pal, one who was also at the granny chic day, but on the Saturday, not Sunday, so our paths never crossed, and that is the lovely Letitia, aka Mrs Bertimus.
I can't wait to actually see her and her work up close and personal - as it were. Heaven knows what I will be making. I think I need to find an image to trace, I have an idea (of sorts) in my head so think will just go with that. I'm meant to be wearing a daffodil in my hair but as I'm working every day again this week that plan is looking a little off of the beaten track but I'll do my bestest - mind you, if I do that, Mrs B has to be wearing a Carmen Miranda style turban on her head which I'm betting she doesn't do! (I'll let you know)!
The other person who I'm super excited to be seeing is my other bloggy pal A from Lazy Daisy Jones. We've been chatting in blogland for over a year now but haven't met as we live super far from each other, but she is coming up for the day too - squeal!
Of course I am also very nervous and worried that everyone will take an instant dislike to me and I'll want to cry but let's not dwell on that - for now!
I'm also joining in with the mand-a-long started by Daisy and Chrissie over on their blogs. I've started my first one today. Took me flipping ages to learn how to do the magic loop/circle thingy. Thank heavens for You Tube again - it's a crochet dream for a visual learner like me. I've got too many stitches though but I'm not thinking about that, no siree, I'm just carrying on like everything is fine!

Happy Mother's Day - whether you are or not. I made my mum a bookmark, a lavender bag and an extra special bookmark from my Handmade Home book that I mentioned in my last post. I can show it now if you like...

It's my mum as drawn by my 5 year old. I then backstitched around it and sewed it together, with some fusible interfacing to stiffen it. I'm pretty impressed with it and she loved it!
