On the 3rd of November I had my Annual Craft Sale and Garden Party.  About 50 ladies came to shop, chat and enjoy afternoon tea of lovely home cooking, with their friends.  I had a very successful day.

 A picnic lunch in the back garden before the ladies arrived.
 Time for a quick family shot having all the girls and grandchildren together in one location.  A rare thing.
 Tassy made the paper bunting.  The topiaries having their annual airing having served at weddings and birthday parties too.
 The delicious home baking by the girls, me and a very dear friend who makes her famous mushroom tarts for me.
Afternoon tea served in the Boat Room.
 Charlotte, Yvette and Tassy taking care of sales.

 Alicia and Felicity serving afternoon tea.

Some very tired children at the end of the day having 'quiet time'.  Nice time for us to relax as well.

  3. I am always SO proud of what you do Mum, all your beautiful craft work is so amazing and inspiring. And then, to go to all the trouble you do to make your sale so beautiful and inviting and welcoming and relaxing for your friends! They have such a wonderful time and it is always a fantastic success. You should be so proud of yourself too, it's an awesome achievement! xoxo
