Ready Steady Goooooooooooo!!


Last night was the first Ilkeston Dabblers get together of 2011 and it was lovely seeing new friend and old.  There was lots of crafting and chatter.  Tea and coffee flowed freely and Tracey kindly supplied the ‘eats’.   The room was ,cosy tosy, – warm as it was a cold night.  One of the joys for me at Arena is that you only have to leave the room clean and tidy there is no putting away.

Anne demonstrated and showed us how to make a small box – it looked really complicated but Anne made it look easy & coached us through each stage.  Several were made  It will take a couple of luxury chocs or speciality tea bags, but Anne very kindly supplied us with a gorgeous fruity smelling bath fizzer to put in them.

As Pam and I left we were wandering about trying to find the letter box to post the room fee through as I’d been told.  Anyway Pam told me to get the car turned round and she wandered down the car park to find the letter box which she did.  Money safely posted through, off we set to return to Derby.  I took Pam and a mystery tour back to her house.

The next Ilkeston meeting will take place on February 18th at Ilkeston – see you all again there!!!!
