Swinging Saturday

What a whirlwind of a weekend.  It's crop today and we've had a lovely day.  Myy sweet mincemeat muffins went down a treat and I'm under orders to make them again next month, not only for the girls but Jude's husband likes my muffins too!!
This months mini class was making little gift bags to fill with chocolates to send to a Christmas Fayre.  Here's the ones I made inspired by challenges at:
Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions
Saturday challenge - handmade gifts
Totally Gorjuss - not so tradtional Christmas

Supplies used:
Die - favour box 2 PTI
Ink - aqua mist, dark chocolate and ocean tides
Stamps - polka dot basics, fancy flourishes and just for you

So you probably thought it was a nice relaxing day, well it was but we had some excitement as Miss Jean came to crop before she went dancing, Judy brought her friend Nick along and Judith joined us.  Not only that we had a lovely visit from Sue and baby Chloe.  See what happens when you leave me on my own Gwyneth!!

It's lovely having my dancing friends in town and I met them after crop.  We went for dinner and found a great Italian that I didn't even know existed in Denton which is only a couple of minutes from home.  I had a baked pasta and aubergine dish - delicious.

After that it was a quick change before going dancing.  It was great to meet some of the people who go dancing in Manchester and it reminded me that I should try to go to some more local events.
