leigh craft fayre

Good morning i thought i would share what Tillytrotter and myself got up to yesterday. Well it is tillys birthday this month so i bought her a ticket for our local craft fayre she said she didn't need anything but as i said she could keep my from spending as too many teas of beans on toast doesn't give a health smell to my room oh the wind it causes Well we set off just after 10 short drive and with ticket get free drink so no need for flasks. getting on for 1hr+ and we are just leaving the 1st stall Oyster Crafts although I did watch a demo but oh the struggle to get to the sections and then the choice. Well i grabed what i thought I needed not wanted as it was the 1st stall. Then had a check of what i had in my hand thought oh i really shouldnt get that so having put back half. Iam a girl left the stall spending £70 so that was my limt and i did have money so no more card for me. Off we went to see the sizzex stall as we both have a bigshot and oh there was so much choice there again seems this year it is dies and not stamps. Well wepondered and looked and made all the lovely noises you make when you see things you would like. I wanted a set and tilly liked it too and whated a few other bits well then we went and had a look at the stamps and embellishments they had . Arm full we went to pay so thinking oh I can now get Tillys present i grabbed the set off her paid and presented it back to her with Happy Birthday. With a thank you and a smile she said let grab a drink net. So while i quened for the drinks she bought jacket potatoes for us. Yummy. Well now having well spent up I thought I just need some pearls and my tape and just a wonder round if tilly wanted. Off we went to meiflower but oh no no white pearls just mixed sets and where was the tape oh no i cant live without it. No the supplier hadnt delivered so Boo Hoo. Off we went for a wonder and found some stalls to watch demos a panpastel which was good  and then we found card and card blanks just basic needs. NOt wants Just need i say to myself. now i believe Kevin sent Tilly a message saying take a hold all or something. Wel he was right and what happened to Tilly stopping me buying. Oh well below are my goodies and please dont ask what we are eating for tea this week. Best was i thought I could put my card and few bits away but as i was taking these pictures my son came in.
