Better late than not at all.

Evening all!  (That's the sound of the Police! Whoop, whoop!)

A late post from me today after going food shopping and catching up on some jobs today. 
I had a busy day at work Saturday and then a lovely evening at my pal, Irene's for an SU party. 
I can't wait to get all my new goodies. 
I spent more at Irene's than I did at the show in Glasgow, bizarre but true!
Loving the SU style just now, very much the LIS approach.

Going back to the weekend and after a busy day on Saturday we had our monthly crop in Hopeman on Sunday. 
I have been asked about this before.  A crop is a gathering of like minded crafters who get together to chat and craft.  We usually have lots of cake with tea and coffee too.  Oh and don't forget the giggles and chat!
As proof I have a picture of everyone beavering away, except Christel!!  LOL.

We'd all like to send our big thanks to Eileen for her beautiful chocolate cake, which was enjoyed.  #yummy!
It was agreed that you need to come to the crop!  ;)

I spent the crop making poppy's for Remembrance Day and still have more to do so I'm going to sign off and crack on.  Here is my finished poppy....

I have had orders for at least a dozen without even advertising the fact.  All monies will be going to the British Legion. 
Next year I maybe need to be better organised. 
That is the story of my life....everything is done at last minute. 
Still on the bright side I do usually get there eventually.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday evening. 
I'm looking forwards to the new series of Ripper Street and True Blood tonight, feet up crocheting away. x

Good evening Erika,
Sorry I messed up on the day at SECC.
As you say it was rather manic, if time is short meeting up with someone is not good.
Next year try making a trip of it, stay overnight in your Hotel find, then all day at the Show. That to me would be a great way to do it. Even staying over another night just to recover!!!!
Hazel and I made Felt Poppy's last year and sold them for Charity. I really like your crochet ones.
Your "crop" looks fun, pity you are so far up the road
Happy crafting

Hi Erika, love your poppy, it's turned out beautifully.
Looks as if you all had a great time at the crop.
I'm disappointed to miss Ripper Street, I've got choral practice and not home till 10, but in time for the Dome, I'm hooked, hugs Kate X

Hi Erika, love your poppy and what a great idea having a Crop. I had seen it mentioneded in a few blogs but had no idea what it was, now I know. The three "c's", cake chat and craft is the way to go.

Like Hazel says what is a SU party?
