Fun at Hobbycraft...

Hi folks...the wanderer has returned safe and sound from the trip to Hobbycraft Glasgow and yesterday turned out to be another scorcher of a day...blistering hot so was I a happy bunny to discover the store was air conditioned...don't think I might have survived otherwise...not particularly busy which wasn't a big surprise...what would you rather do when the sun has his hat on and I do suspect that most of the folks who joined me for the demo were just glad to take the weight off for a while and enjoy the nice cool air...
but a big thank you to my lovely bloggy buddies who made the trip to come say hello...it was lovely to see you again and thanks for making me feel that I wasn't completely "billy no mates" and a special huge thank you to the lovely staff at Hobbycraft who all made me feel so welcome...especially the Manager Susan and my 2 new bestest buddies...the lovely Lyn and the ever so cute Tom who looked after me so well especially Lyn who kept me fortified throughout the day with cups of coffee...thanks a million folks for your wonderful hospitality and fun company...
the drive home was miles better than the drive down...I wasn't looking forward to another 3 hours of being blown to bits by the air con but the minute I left Glasgow the sun disappeared and it was cloudy all the way to Aberdeen with the odd bit of fog and a little sprinkling of rain and the perfect end to a fun day...fish and chips at Scone on the way home. I'm planning on having a chill out lazing around doing nothing kind of a day but I'll be back tomorrow to share some of the demo samples.
and a fun pic from Friday morning...as I loaded up the car my "what would I do without him" adorable Furry Boy came trotting out with a slipper with that "don't forget your slippers Mum" look on his face.
Hugs for now

Sounds like a good, creative day. Your samples look wonderful...\love the blue snowflake!

Kath, what a pity you didn't get more to see all your great pieces, their loss. Now I bet if had been pouring with rain you wouldn't have been able to move. Folk are funny it was cloudy here in fife but you should have seen the tail back on the way through Cupar with them all heading to St Andrews and the beach, did they think it wouldn't be cloudy there too.
I was Glad I was going to Perth, and was turning left at the junction and not right.

I suppose you can't blame people for wanting to be out in the (rare) sunny weather but it was a pity for you after all your hard work. Just showed hubby the photo of Buddy putting your slipper in the boot and he said -'He's delightful isn't he?' Hope he didn't miss you too much.
