Craft fair in the snow.

Set off in the snow this morning! Think we deserved a prize for motivation! Darn chilly but we managed almost 7 hours regardless. It was 0.5 degrees C when we packed up the car! Had a good day but hopefully we'll get some better weather when we return to Heart of the Country at Swinfen on March 30th. Before then though is a charity fair at Shifnal Methodist Church on Saturday 23rd March (afternoon only.)  If you fancy popping in you'd be most welcome :)

Three different bike cards!

Do you think there is a world record for making bicycle cards? Three more made this evening. One using some excellent bike brads, another using a metallic bike bookmark and the third with a GB biking theme!
