Hi! there,
Earlier last week we decided we would take our goodies to the Handmade Expo in Ipswich
last Saturday. After the duststorm then on Wednesday and another predicted for Saturday
we then wondered at our decision.

So there we were at Handmade Expo for the first time, foregoing a sleep in to rise early at
4.00 am to get there in plenty of time to set up. The day started out fine until shortly after it started at 8.00 when it decided to get windy, had we made the right decision we thought, as having previous experience with outside markets and changing weather, you are virtually at mother natures mercy. One stall holder packed up and went home as some of her things got broken.
We secured our shade cover as best we could and did our best to enjoy the morning.

We were very fortunate to be surrounded by delightful ladies on either side of us.
It was lovely to chat to like minded crafty people and see what they are up to.

So a big hello to Sarah and her daughter from "Designs of the Heart"
Natalie Cotter and her Mum from "Rod n Lil"
( it was nice to share the morning with great neighbours. Hope to see you again soon.
The dust and wind rolled in as it was time to pack up, so a quick stop at Macca's for something
to eat and a cold drink before we tackled the trip home.

Today I caught up with a very good friend I hadn't seen since my daughter's wedding about 5 years ago. Narelle has moved to Brisbane and it was nice to catch up with all the gos' and what
has been happening in each others lives since then. Had a nice lunch and checked out some new
clothes boutiques in Kenmore. Lots of LOL. Will look forward to getting together more often.

Lee-Ann is enjoying being a grandma to Ella, though still finding some time to create things
for Handmade Heaven and the Expo stall.

Will try and post again soon take care...Lyn
