 From these we
got this!!!

Good morning, it looks like we will maybe, just maybe get a nice day .

Just going to show one more of the raffles prizes.   My lot were in stitches when this gift was being taken to the winner, I had made sure all the gifts were transported so that they wouldn't get juggled and the contents wouldn't get moved.  Well the lady carrying it nearly had it inside down and I felt like shouting carry it properly it took we time to get that to sit right.  Well Chris (son) wished he hadn't put his camera away as seemingly my face was a picture!!,  any way a great night was had by all the raised £450 which was good seeing there was only a 100 or less there.

I would like to say welcome to " littlelamb". I know you also don't have a blog, that does not matter you are very welcome,   Tracy our e-mail is cf.he.evans@ I will leave it up for a few days then I will remove it.

Thank you for all your comments saying I had transformed the donated sets into gifts.   It's not that there was t other gifts sets just in the packaging they came it. Chris wanted folk to think if they bought tickets they might get something more than a tin of biscuits , chocolates or a bottle of wine.
I made a round wicker box and did the gift that I did at Christmas " wine and nibbles". But it was six little wines 3 red 3 white and filled the centre with sweets from a big box of Lindt ball chocolates.  Plus a couple of other baskets.   If I had known I was going to be doing the donated gifts up I would have done something else.

Well it's into the factory for me.   Hope you have something nice to do.   Or not just relax and it and

  3. Wow Hazel that is some total that you helped to achieve well done! Your baskets all looked fantastic, such a pity your Chris did not have his camera to hand when the prizes were being dished out.
    A big thank you to both you and Patricia for sharing your sunshine with us down here in the Lake District, we have had glorious sunshine both yesterday and today and after a week of dark grey skies and feeling really cold it is more than welcome.
    Don't forget to have a tea break in the 'factory'
