Spring Clean...........

While Shirl was away on her visit to Q'land I decided to surprise her by cleaning the storeroom. An old package that we had used in a display, spilt onto the floor. it wasn't long before I was coughing & sneezing & having trouble breathing. Thought I had better check what was in the package.

Chillies The lid of a 60 year old container of chillies had come off & dried chillies had scattered all over the floor. Who would have thought that after all those years they would still have such an effect. Some time later after safely removing the offenders to the rubbish bin, some customers in the shop mysteriously began sneezing & coughing. I had to confess the spilt chillies were to blame.

Retreat Update

It is only a little over 2 weeks before our retreat. The tutors have sent their samples and they look fantastic. Aren't we lucky to have the first peek at what you girls are going to make. There is a great variety of projects so no-one should be disappointed. Looking forward to a great day on Saturday October 4th. There are still some spots if you haven't booked yet.
