Go East

The Thornbury Craft Bonanza headed to the home of Hoppo Bumpo yesterday for a crafternoon filled with scones and jam and cream, chocolate cake, really bad jokes, and lots of laughs.

Bec even managed to fit in a trip to the oppy on the way, just to make me insanely jealous!

I made a little progress on something red.....

....but the most super exciting thing is that Tinniegirl has nearly finished this beautiful snuggly granny square rug which is for me and my couch!

I can't wait to inject a bit of colour into my lounging area.

A huge thankyou to Liesl for being such a wonderful host for the afternoon - can't wait for the next one!

Oh. My. Goodness. I missed THOSE scones. And you lot, too - of course. (Still hitting the Canadian fabric shops! Ho. ho. ho! Did someone say the words 'new suitcase'?)

The chocolate cake captivated my attention and the frosting looks so really delicious..

I had a ball ... and somehow did almost nothing?! Er, maybe except for chat and eat. Looking forward to the next TCB - especially if Tinniegirl is going to tell more of her jokes :)
