That's just what I did with my little sis. We went on a Craftwork Cards Christmas do at the Village Hotel Leeds. Little sis only lives a few miles from there but we stayed overnight as a treat. Would like to mention everyone we met but my lousy memory has failed me again. I do remember that Sue and Julie made us work hard for our dinner and I came away with several lovely projects, all unfinished because I'm such a slowcoach.
Oh we have also given up our static caravan so I've the contents of a small home piled in my lovely dining room. Can't remember the last time it was actually used as a dining room. Scope for a number of New Year Resolutions here.
