Today saw Michelle and I head for the hills in search of a gorgeous retreat in Calderdale.
I very stupidly did not take photos of the amazing views we were surrounded with nor the amazing workroom we were given tour of but quite honestly the day was bliss.
We have found the most amazing friends through crafting. You know the sort of folks who its just easy to be with, where deep and meaningful conversations can happen in amongst the delight of a gorgeous stamp, sheet of paper or new technique. Where just being you is the only thing they want you to be. Today was a day for sharing that sort of time with that sort of friends - priceless!
Michelle chose the project and brought some gorgeous hearts she had bought a few Christmas' ago. They were lovely as they were but also begged to be altered and alter we did.
With a little help from my red, white and blue box that has my British supplies in it
We inked, stamped, cut out, sanded, glued and fiddled till we were happy with our hearts. All the while laughing, chatting, being deep and meaningful, daft and frivolous and generally enjoying the ease of the company and beautiful surroundings and mine ended up like this.
I'm cross I didn't take photos because at lunchtime we sat really quiet, looking around at the beauty surrounding us and do you know the only sound I could hear was...................
My tinnitus! Yes it was so far into the beautiful Calderdale countryside the sounds of the town were not to be heard. What a joy to share such a wonderful day with such special friends.
Huge thanks Michelle, Pam and Alison xxxx
