some more craft weekend photos
I spent a large amount of time at craft weekend exclaiming that I hadn't taken a single photo all weekend, and then all of a sudden in the last few hours I felt the need to get the camera out. I think it was the sudden appearance of dramatically angled sunbeams that did it.
Or the Barbie Yoga.
The weekend was as wonderful as these weekends always are with a gloriously harmonious tribe of women who just get it with no explanation or compromise necessary. Everyone fits, newcomers are enveloped into the fold effortlessly, and the hum hums on, punctuated by oohs of delight, cracks of laughter and endless cups of tea.
No mice this time! But a Golden Orb Weaver wove her web next to the iron lace outside the window while we wove and stitched inside. Rather fitting.
I could go on and on about it but you've heard it all before and I just sat an exam this afternoon so am a little weary. Time to knit the thumbs on a pair of fingerless gloves and have an early night. Ooh, I was just handed a cup of tea so I think I'll skip the thumbs, go directly to the early night and not pass go.
PS. Son #1 had two exams today (one 'good', one 'well, okaaay ...') and is equally weary. He has a music exam tomorrow and when I gently suggested perhaps tonight ought to be spent revising he calmly replied Oh music, no need. There's not much I don't know. Oh the confidence of youth. (In his defence, he did snort out loud when he realised what he'd actually said).
PPS. Full set of craft weekend shots here.
PPS. Thanks to Janet, Kate, Catherine, Mim, Sue and Jenny for another fab weekend.
