There was a prize for anyone wearing a hat from the Car Park.

Whoops looks like I was in trouble again, I think Nanette is telling me off.

Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year

see you on 17th January.

Christmas Games

One of the games we played were the best dressed Snowman, almost everyone joined in and thanks Sophie who popped over to the garage to get some smarties and jelly tots, they just wouldn't look so fab if you hadn't.

Some were just downright scary!

And the winner was the Cowboy Snowman, such a shame to eat it.
Eyes down for Papercraft Bingo.
I forgot to take photos of the secret santa, possibly because I was laughing so much at Fairy Karen who was hovering over the pressie table, frightening anyone who went near her choice of pressie.

Christmas Mystery Kit

Christmas Fairy

So last year's Elf has turned into a Christmas Fairy.
The Christmas Fairy brought with her this yummy Gingerbread House which nobody wanted to be the first to eat into.
Thank you everyone for the lovely plates of food, we had just the right balance of savoury and sweet.

So what did Janet do at the crop, she spent most of the time cricut-ting holly for every one.

December Crop

So what craft will Janet be doing at December crop to find out you need to be there on December 6th.
It will be our last for 2009 so a bit of party atmosphere is called for, we're asking for you to bring a plate of food suitable for a finger buffet.
Also if you would like to take part in Secret Santa, you just need to bring a wrapped present of £5 it doesn't need to be craft stuff but you do need to bring a present to receive one.
There will be a mystery kit class too, so plenty of things to do at this month's crop.

Iris folding

Iris folding was the class at the crop by Janet

Some of us had amazing photos to use

Here's Julie deep in thought while she cut the relevant parts.

This was her amazing result

Here's my effort finished and used on a layout, sorry for the awful photo but it pouring with rain and I can't find enough daylight.

Acetate Album

Here's some pics of the Acetate album that was being made at the October crop, we were slightly concerned when FairyKaren was melting the fabric under a smoke dector.

But it does make a fabulous flower.
These are from Doreen' album.

From Sophie's Nan really must find out your proper name can't keep calling you Sophie's Nan.

The last few are Sophies what a fabulous colour combo can't wait to see it finished.
