Autumn is upon Us......

Did you remember to alter your clocks at the weekend? We did though I don't think that extra hour made any difference. It's been my weekend at work, so lack of sleep my head is fuzzy! Back in tomorrow night, Tuesday and an extra on Thursday night.
Saturday is the Bramford monthly crop 9am-5pm, so hope to see some of you there. The crop now has a FB page to.......Bramford Monthly Crop....pretty inventive name if I do say so myself. LOL.
Emily has been at Uni in Kingston for nearly 7 weeks now and loves it. It seems strange without her here and I certainly think the cat has missed her, he perked right up when she came home for one night last week.
In September Liz, Karen, Nancy, Emma, Beryl, Tracey and myself went away for a long weekend to School Farm Coattages, Cratfield, Suffolk on a crafting retreat. We had a great time, scrapbooking, cardmaking, chatting, chilling, eating and just enjoying each others company. I was quite productive and did around 7 layouts, here's what I did.

 Most are photos from our cruise last year, I've almost finished scrapping those.
Earlier in the year I gave away my old sewing machine and have been umming and arhing for months about getting a new one. Well as I've a birthday on the horizion and because Create and Craft had a good deal on one I'd had my eye on I went for it and here it is.
it arrived on Friday but as yet haven't had time to even look at it. My lovely new toy.................Andy might at long last get his work trousers turned up, the ones he bought about a year ago and still sit waiting for me to alter, think he'd forgotten about them!
Last week I took the bull by the horns and , yes wait for it, started my Christmas shopping. Bought a few bits n pieces for Andy and the kids. It's a start.
Well lots to do.

Hello Janina, wonderful scrapbook pages, smashing layouts too.
Hope you find time to get your new toy out to play with. Sounds like your crafting retreat was good, hugs Kate x
