Ready...Steady...Go...

H folks...after all the frantic preparations...it's finally here...Day 1 of the Spring Craft Retreat at The Papeterie...I'm really looking forward to spending the weekend with all the lovely folks who are coming along to play...it's guaranteed to be lots of fun and the good news is Mr Nasty Cold Virus has hightailed it back to whence he came so I'm back to firing on all cylinders again and raring to go.
And a certain member of the cubbyhole crew will be mighty glad that the cubbyhole has returned to normal...the poor Furry Boy's snoozing space has been reduced to postage stamp proportions with all the kitting paraphenalia but he's such a star...takes things as they come and always happy to snuggle himself into the only available empty space however cramped.
And with a bit of luck Monday's first task of the day will be to move the big bundle of Fiskars samples out of his snoozing space...they've returned to the cubbyhole for a big "tarting up" operation...after a year of travelling the country...here...there and everywhere...in and out of demo and tools boxes...they're looking a tad battered bruised and downright tatty but with a bit of titivating and replacement of crushed ribbons and flattened embellishments...they'll be looking as good as new and all set for their next outing at the NEC in November.
And talking of samples...a naughty e-mail with a last minute (is there any other kind) magazine commission popped into my Inbox the other day...deadline for posting...TODAY but Mr Fuse and Mr Mojo worked their magic...
and another job bites the dust...
Toodle-oo for now...see you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh Kath - Buddy looks so peaceful and happy to keep you company whatever the conditions - my little Jack Russell Polly is the same - however, my craft room is still off limits. We had to empty it to install the new furniture so you can imagine the chaos that has caused - bedrooms, landing, sitting room and even our little summer house in the garden has boxes piled up. Cracking on with it again tomorrow - hope I don't crack first. Would love to have come to the retreat, especially as it is my birthday on Saturday - maybe one day I will make the journey and say hello. Hope you all have a super time. X

Buddy is so good just lying there if it was my springers they would have demolished something. Do your fiskers thick dies go through big shot ? As I love your bird that you use. Have a good weekend don't get lost !!!! Best wishes ginny. X

Ooh you tease! just a wee glimpse of your project to keep us interested. Glad you're feeling better. Buddy must sense that you have your wandering shoes on again. Maybe he's hoping to be packed up with the kits so that he can come with you. Valxxx
