On the road today!

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.
Very late today.
We have been trundling up the country in the van,
all set for a busy weekend.

In fact, we're still doing it! But the A1M is shut, so it's detour time to Heather and Len's.
Ugh.
Let's see if I can post this from the van .
The fastest blog in the world!

Set up tomorrow at Leyburn.
we are holding our annual Clarity Open Day up north 
at the very prestigious Auction Rooms, Tennants at Leyburn.

We set up tomorrow,
in readiness for our guests on Saturday.

It’s a ticket only gig, but if you turned up on the day, 
I bet we could squeeze you in.
I shall leave a dozen tickets at the door just in case.
They’re only a fiver. 

So who’s demonstrating....
Well, we have 

Maria Simms
Sam Crowe
Jo Rice
Emma Burns
Tina Cox
Paul Church
Mandy Branston
Myself

I would say that that’s a pretty amazing line up!
Between us, I should think we will cover all bases. 
Only sorry that Dee Paramour is not with us.
She’s not well enough to make that long journey just now,
especially because on the Sunday
I am shooting off up to the Crafter’s Companion shop to do a demo,
and Paul Church is chasing down to Peterborough 
to do 3 hours of live TV !
Which means we couldn’t even drive her home.

    1. Hi Morag, I have only just read your update from Yesterday and I just wanted to add my sincerest condolences for the very sad loss of Penny, I'm so very very sorry. I was in your shoes only 6 months ago and I miss my little shadow Trevor so much, I'm lucky in that we have 2 other dogs to keep me busy but my little Trevy was a very special boy. Love and hugs xx

  4. Hello dear friends. I've been waiting patiently for today's blog, so I could thank you all for your lovely, caring words yesterday. There are no words to fully describe how caring, supportive and wonderful you all are. I'm off to bed now as hubby and I couldn't sleep last night. so I feel as if I'm in a bit of a haze right now.
    The friend I was coming to Leyburn with on Saturday has cried off this evening. But I've found a lovely lady who goes to our card class to accompany me instead, so I will definitely be there.
    Love and Hugs to every one of you. xxx

    1. Hi to all of my lovely blog friends - I hope that you are all as well as can be and that you have all had a good day. Can I ask - is it only me who forgets where she has put the pieces of parchment that she is working on, or are finished ready to mount onto cards?! Thankfully I found what I was looking for eventually and have put together my first Groovi card to give away - not thinking that the previous ones were good enough! It is a thank you card for my new special friend at the hospital - our own 'Star Baker' - hope she likes it! Off to bed now - love and hugs, Gilly xxx

  45. Good luck with your busy schedule this weekend, I would like to thank you for the beautiful items in my diamond club package that arrived yesterday. I won't spoil the surprise for any that haven't received theirs yet, but each one is something I would have chosen myself to have, they are beautiful xxx

  46. Hello Barb, hope you arrived safely, and get some time to relax before your very busy weekend. Please wish Dee well, hope she gets better soon. My club package also arrived yesterday, and it is stunning, looking forward to playing with it. Take care. Bx

  47. Really disappointed that my friend and I can't attend Leyburn after the silly car accident on Monday. Have found a new car but can't get it in time to make the trip.
    I am more sad that I had given the ticket to my friend as part of her birthday present, will have to find a super alternative.
    Hope it goes well

  50. Hello Barbara

    Firstly I am sorry to hear Dee is not feeling well enough to join you this weekend. I hope her health improves.

    Sending best wishes for a good weekend for you all. I will have to watch Paul on the computer as Freeview is off air at the moment.

    Love

  55. Wish I could be there with you all - but I am booked in at a workshop elsewhere. What is it about 24th Sept - I was spoilt for choice for places to go! I know those of you who are going will have a lovely time.

  57. Hope the setting up is going well, Barbara. I've had a ticket for Leyburn for months but won't be able to get there as, sadly, we have a funeral to attend. I did let the office know in case someone else could get in instead of me :) Looking forward to next year now!! Mxx
