Another trip to Hatched and Patched.........

Yeh I know what your thinking I was only at Hatched and Patched about a month ago................but I promise it was ages before that and I would be lucky if I got there once a year and just cause one visit was at the end of last year and the this at the start..............lol..........anyway that's my story and I will stick to it............

Anita and Jo Jo were supposed to meet me there and Jo Jo's dh is a "useless" (JoJo's words) hobby farmer and that stopped them coming the night before...........I was very sad..............but I had talked Bloom into coming the day before so she and her family come along for the day anyway.............(so nice to meet you Bloom's Mum)

Now Jo Jo your dh is in big trouble with us as since you girls couldn't come we had to do you proud and make up for what you missed out on...............let me tell you we have made you VERY proud..........unfortunately I can't show much as it is all for secret projects but I did get some pics of Anni's beautiful shop........and some books I will show you later............and Anni was having a SALE.......so that made it a bit better...........

some quick easy projects hanging in the window............

a baby shelf........

more lovely things..............

more fabric..........

I like this one hanging above the old fire place........

then of course we had to go out for lunch..............and wow was that good.............

is your mouth watering Jo Jo..............does it match the desserts Anita and I had............

this was mine.............

they all looked so good............

So sorry you missed the day Anita and Jo Jo but maybe things will work out better next time............Nundle is not that long away...........

Thanks Anni and Margaret another great visit.............

.........take care til next time.............
