September Merly Crop.

Hi everyone.

Many, many thanks to everyone who attended our September 2016 Merly crop.

It was another packed and busy crop, with lots of chatting, crafting and of course cake eating. We had an amazing day, it was lovely catching up with people, some I hadn’t seen since the Merly Retreat back in July, wow that seems so long ago now. We hope everyone who attended the crop also enjoyed the day as much as we did and enjoyed making their layouts from the kit.

For the September kit I decided to use the more male themed “Barber Shoppe” Kaisercraft collection which features vintage timepieces, cars and aeroplanes with a classic, dapper charm.  Included in the kit were detailed instructions and stash to make the layouts that I called: “Handsome”

Afternoon Tea

After a busy week it was nice to have a wonder around the town and have a lovely afternoon tea in a beautiful little French Cafe.


Yummy cakes, this was our second visit, will def be going back and will be sampling something different each time. The good thing is that this little cafe is situated in the local craft shop.
