I've been busy this week teaching at Pickleberry, running Georgina around and had a great day out with Helen on Friday, mooching around Whitstabubble.
I am off on a road trip soon, ending with a weekend of scrapping with a few friends near Newcastle. Helen and Julie have never been before so we are going a couple of days early so that we can fit in some sightseeing. We are leaving on Wednesday and calling at Art from the Heart in Harrogate to see Dyan then on to The Scrapbook Shop in Durham to see my sister, Gill. We will spend the afternoon in Durham. Thursday we are heading up to Lindisfarne then down to Bamburgh, Seahouses and Alnwick. Friday we are heading off to Hexham and Corbridge then onto the retreat until Sunday. Alex has got me and him a ticket each for the Newcastle match on Saturday afternoon, I am really looking forward to seeing him again and hoping we will win the match.
So, the last couple of days have been spent sorting out what to take to the retreat, new stock is coming into Pickleberry so I am sure I will be adding to my stash before we leave! I loved the idea of filling a 7 Gypsies library drawer and was going to buy one until I found two drawers on the firewood pile. I rescued them and have cleaned them up ready to fill. They are 8" wide and 14' long so quite a lot bigger but they were free!
I had a poke around the barn this morning when I took the dogs out and found a rotten old wooden index card filing cabinet, such a shame that the carcass of it had fallen apart but luckily the drawers have survived so I rescued them.
They are 4 1/2" wide and 8" long, easier to fill up! Gill has bagged one already. Hopefully after the weekend I will have some photographs of them with something inside.
