Some 2017 dates for the Diary

Evening Everyone, I hope you're first week of the year has gone well.  I don't know about you but it seems like Christmas was months ago.  With H safely back in his alternative home and Oli out and about I've had a fun day here packing away all the Christmas decorations, and the car, ready to head off to Leicestershire to host my first Graphic 45 workshop of the year tomorrow with Elaine and her group of craft ladies.  We'll have our two requested projects well underway by lunch time and hopefully fully finished before we have to pack away late tomorrow afternoon.  So looking forward to seeing everyone.

I thought I'd share some events that are coming up over the next few weeks.  If your interested in coming along to one, just follow the contact details for more info and bookings: It would be  great to see you :-)
