Meeting friends in Wantage

Yesterday Sue, Janet, Lucy and I all meet in Wantage, where the lovely Wendy owner of Stamp Attic treated us royaly by allowing us to use her workshop and making sure we were really comfortable, Wendy even treated us to Cake!

We responded warmly with a few purchases! Not just from Stamp Attic, Lucy and I visited a couple of charity shops while we were in town.

Gifts from Sue, we each received an empty yeast tin that we are to Alter! Sue also gave each of us a special edition set of her stamps made especially for us by Tanda. Plus look at all the yummy fibre ummmmm! and little UTEE charms she had made for us and buttons and beads and lots of other goodies all in the fabulous box she had made especially for each of us.

From Janet all the way for New Zealand a card that when Janet first blogged it blew me away. She also gave each of us one of the napkins with the shell design on it and fragments of shell her challenge to us is to make something using these. She had also brought for each of us a stamp depicting a bird or animal or plant from her home, mine is a Pukeko going to have to google that later. Janet had made a goodie bags as well and filled them with lots of other treats and goodies.

Lucy had a fabulous canvas for each of us. Mine shows the Alice moment when the Hatter stuffs the Dormouse into the teapot.

Unfortunatly Donna lives a bit far away in America to join us for the afternoon. With us in sprit Donna had sent each of us beautiful tissue holders. So useful something of Donna we can all carry with us all the time.

The best of the day was spending time with good friends, Sue had her Copics with her for us to play with. We all had a great time thank you all for a great day out.
