:( wish I lived on your side of the ocean. Crafty Mamas is already a forum and shop - so maybe another name:) MummaCraftTogehter.

Hi We have a little craftgroup in our little town and we named ourselves "The Cackle Club" lol as everyone thought it was a hen house till they got inside and found women!!! we meet every Tuesday and you can do whatever craft you choose or just have a cry if needed.We have only 2 rules really do not talk about other people and what is said in the room stays there.We are 12 ladies and sometimes only 4 can come but we started out aquaintances and we all have a beautiful circle of friends now,we have been meeting just over 1 year.Everyone brings lunch but on the first Tuesday of each month we send out for takeaway chinese.Without cackle club there would be 12 frustrated crafters.Hope you get a good roll up if I was in your country i would love to come.

Sounds great, sorry I won't be able to make it since I live on the wrong island. I hope it all goes well for you though.

Hi Stacey - thanks for entering the bag giveaway on my post - the closing date is 12th June so I'll contact the winner on 13th - good luck! Polka dots are certainly my favourites too so I'll have to make myself another bag when I give this one away! Lucy

PS And I'd love to come to your crafting day but it's probably a bit too far to come :o) Wish we had something like that near me (not that I could carry my sewing machine to it anyway... it's 40 years old and heavier than I am!) x

Hey there - somehow I've managed to stumble across your blog - totally 'bummed' I missed the polka dot swap by 4 days - especially since it is a NZ based swaps - all these overseas postages are killing me LOL :) What a fantastic idea for a Crafternoon Tea
I'm keen for an August one if you have one :)
