Travellers from the north!



They came from the north in their lovely orange van!


Yes, it's the 'Cocoa and blankets' family...

Helen, Pete and Polly.



Stopping off at a campsite almost next door to us, they were able to spend an evening with us and then we waved them off the next day as they continued on their journey to Cornwall.



They came bearing gifts... ;-)


I can't wait to get crafting...loads of ideas here!




And now they are at Portscatho...lucky devils!
It was so lovely to meet them...proving once again that bloggers really are the nicest people!

Ah Sal...I'm a little envious that you got to meet Helen, Pete and Polly! One day soon, I hope.
Hope you are fully recovered now. See you soon. x

Hi Sal,
How wonderful! Helen has always come across as a really lovely lady - I'm so glad you all had such a great time.

Hubby and I have just returned from a spur-of-the-moment holiday (well an over-nighter) to Devon...I called in to see Ros (who I have known for quite a few years) in Ashburton...and you were mentioned! ;-)) Blogging does create a small world...

Look forward to seeing you again at the V&H - have a great week,

I just don't "get" Blogger sometimes...... I found this post of yours annotated "posted two days ago", and yet it is dated today....... Anyway, i found it, and I am so glad I did. What a lovely thing to have met other bloggers. I am green with envy over that book: the peg dollies look a delight! Here's hoping this message gets left only once. (Sometimes I am scared to check back because sometimes they don't get left at all and on other occasions they get left twice!!). Onwards and downwards... :O)

I've got that Stitch and Sparkle book and there's lots of great things to make in there. I enjoyed making the peg dolls.

How excellent to meet other bloggers - elizebethd of French Villqge Life and I met up this summer and are still in regular email and postal contact, which is just lovely.

I've just had a good look through your recent posts and enjoyed them immensely - good to be back on the internet!

As I said on my blog the other day Sal - when you meet a fellow blogger face to face you feel they are old friends you have known for years.
