After Breakfast on Sunday morning Clare called to collect us and led us, in convoy, to Dunelm Mill and Hobbycraft. One of our number (in true red arrows fashion) peeled off at the roundabout for a mini scenic tour but soon realised she was on a lone mission and re-traced her steps and caught up with us. We spent a happy hour ..... SHOPPING - followed by a refreshing coffee in the restaurant cum coffee shop in Dunelm Mill and then there was nothing for it but for us to wend our weary way home.

We HAD thought we might have to contend with snow but none of us (in our wildest dreams) would have thought this might be the reason for a delay in our homeward journey and (frankly) I'm glad I was not alone in the car as I fear no-one would have believed me ....
|YEP, a JUMBO JET on the A49 just south of Hereford caused a traffic snarl up whilst they dismantled traffic lights at a crossing to allow it to pass! Who'd have believed it?|
Once Debs has left (after yet another cuppa and a little light crafting - the maze book we never got round to covering) and I had put Lauren on the London bound train it was time to reflect what a wonderful craftathon 2013 was and to look forward to 2014.
Thanks to Clare for organising this fabulous weekend and thanks to: Cherry, Clare, Debs, Lauren and Wynneth for making the weekend so fab and to Sir Andy, Ian and Celia for their special guest appearance! Andy - I can't thank you enough for your cards and gifties - especially that gel!!!!
