More Thank Yous...

Hi folks...OK here we go with the first of many posts about my adventures at Stitches...I'm starting off with a huge thank you to my bestest bud and Fiskars colleague Enfys for her welcoming hospitality at Hotel En & Mike and for keeping me company walking the show...needless to say there were many "talking the hind legs of a donkey" late night chatty sessions and lots of fun and laughter along the way...thank you my lovely friend and I look forward to seeing you again at Hobbycrafts at the NEC...only 3 weeks away.
But I'm jumping to the last day of the show...because everything in between is still en route...starting off with a fun Decoart/Tando Creative Mixed Media workshop with the adorable Andy Skinner...making a Copper Patina Industrial Winged Tag...
dabbing your fingers into paint to create various effects resulting in the obligatory "I'm having great fun" mucky right up my street and a big thank you to my new friend Marie from Artful Artisan for her fun company and the endless supply of baby wipes...
and thanks to Andy for the give-away stencil...stamp set and paints. 
But I suspect I'm coming down with a cold...the downside of being in a confined space with lots of people for 4 days perhaps or was it the woman sitting behind me on the flight home who coughed non stop all the way to Aberdeen...sharing her germs with everyone on board but I'm currently dosing myself up with Manuka Honey and Hot Lemon because Simon Says Stamp Happy Mail arrived in my absence...can't wait to dig in and play.
I'll be back tomorrow with more Stitches News

  1. I'm even more jealous now! Although you can keep the aches, pains and cold. Lots of hot toddy's laced with that fancy honey. Rest now - you deserve it Kath, big hugs to both you and Buddy Karen x

  2. Sorry to hear you are coming down with a cold - hope the dosing keeps it at bay.
    Love the tag Kath. Andy Skinner's messy classes are fun.

  3. What a great tag Kath. Tim and Andy in one show....brilliant. Get well soon xx

  4. You are always welcome Kath, and thanks for the company and laughter - it's a coloured golf ball type of day, so stay warm xx

  5. Such a fabulous tag you have created there Kath 😀 And how generous with stencils and stamps is Andy.
    I am sure you and Enfys had a great time chatting too x look forward to viewing your SSS makes

    Best wishes

  6. Oh no Kath, I do so hope the cold is not from me!! I had myself dosed up to the hilt to stop me coughing - fingers crossed it is because you are tired after slogging around for days, rather than a cold. I saw those kits being prepped on Andy's stand so it is great to see the finished article (SO wish I had done that class!!!), it looks A-MAZ-ING! Loving Andy's new stamps too. Big hugs, Anne xxx

  7. Love this tag and design.

  8. Love your Andy tag, looks fabulous and hope you feel better soon, I also came home with one on me and have been full of it since Tuesday. Off to the Farnborough craft show this morning to catch up with more friends.
    Take care.
