Well, our holiday ended in the best possible way, in the company of friends once again! I am, of course, talking about the WOYWW crop.

Thanks to Annie and Jo the whole day was fabulous, from drinks and cake to a fabulous lunch, with lots of chat in between, it was a wonderful day.

Of course, none of us would have been there without the online introductions from lovely Julia at The Stamping Ground so special thanks for that dear Julia.

Before the random shots I took, here is the photo taken by my lovely hubby (who took himself off to Shrewsbury Cathedral for coffee and cake in peace straight after taking this pic)

Back row - Caro, Neet

Middle row - Julia, Eva, Jo, Annie, Angela(Felix the Crafty Cat, Cindy, Me, Sarah, Angela(Crafting with Jack), Helen

Front Row - Christine

It took a few minutes to get everyone in the final shot.... 

Jo and Helen - with Annie at the sink!
Lots going on here.
Eva - you make me smile
Serious discussions going on - ooh! and look, there's Max, who popped in for a while
Christine and Angela chatting, Dee(Christine's friend who drove her to the crop) and the Raffle table.
Eva had some lovely cards - difficult to choose wasn't it Sarah?
Sorry Angela, did I take you by surprise?
Hi there Caro!
Almost ready for home - I have jacket envy Neet!

Lots of folk also have pics on their blogs today so check out the links on the Stamping Ground.

I hadn't had time to make anything to swap before we went away and thought I might make some ATCs at the crop - unfortunately they were still on my desk at home.
Thank you everyone for all the lovely art that I came home with.

Since we came home it's been unpacking, laundry, jabs, eye test, meetings, making appointments...I want to craft!!!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Looks like I have nudged quite a few people to do some Bible Journaling, these blog hops can be pretty useful can't they. Super crop photos and totally understand the jacket envy, love it too. #BJ

Hi Chris. So good to see you today - sorry to have missed you Saturday!! It seems ages since we met up at the Manchester craft show, where you gave me that little fabric flower and we met up with Jo of Jo'z art! Where are the years going??!!
Take care. God bless.

Hi Chris, I'm glad you enjoyed the crop. You've posted some great photos.
I hope I'll be able to come next year!
I'm late today as we had a log delivery yesterday and stacking it wore me out!
