An enjoyable week was had by all.....

We had a great crafting holiday in Whitby. The weather was mainly fine, we did have some snow on our last day which was lovely to see on the North Yorkshire Moors. We had a few trips out to Scarborough and Goathland, and squashed in a few craft shops along the way!

Here are Kath, Ros and Norma , taking in the scenic views of the Heartbeat village. We did make it to the Mermaid...sorry The Magpie! We only had to queue for a short time and the sun was out so we didn't mind. It was well worth the wait! We even sat by the sea with a 99 ice cream that day to enjoy the sunshine!
Me, Kath and her sister Ros, who doesnt really sew made a bag in the first few days! It was a drawstring bag with embroidered patchwork outer bag. The girls manage the project well and we all went home with a completed bag. I will update my blog later this week with some of my other projects. Also Ros kindly taught me how to crochet!
I promise we did find time to relax, even managed to enjoy a bottle of wine or two!
