A group of us went to the Black Sheep in Culcheth.
There were five of us from 'elsewhere' and Barbara, who belongs to Black Sheep. The dream team consisted of Lucy, Diane, Jo, Ali, Barbara and myself. Each of us had selected some fabrics from the ranges at Black Sheep, and come up with a project to produce a finished item on the day, and the lovely folk at Black Sheep took photos, and made us extremely welcome and plan to blog about it, on their own blog.

|I made a bag- I always seem to make a bag!|
Di is working hard- I think she runs on one of those batteries which goes on and on... she never stopped! And she produced super baskets. You can just see one there in front of her, but she made loads of them!
Sorry, Barbara, I managed to miss you on the photo round, I managed to get everyone else..
The other side of my bag
and the pockets inside
We were there from about 10, until about 4, and we all made different things. I suggest you go and look at everyone else's blogs to see what they have done... but I think they are not quite ready yet... so have a look over the next few days!
Thank you Black Sheep! I had a fabulous day in super company!
If you get invited- take them up on it, they really know how to look after you!
and?? then just before we were leaving, in came Lesley with Goody bags! Coats had provided bags with lovely treats inside for us.
well chosen goods in those bags, Fabric , pins, a pen, a book with suggestions for things to make, and the pattern for the 'walkaway dress', and a tin containing a selection of threads.
You can just see a mini roll of 'Tim Holz' Eclectic Elements
And these fabrics, a range I am unfamiliar with, and could not spot on the website.
I wonder, did we all get the same fabrics? Perhaps I shall find out!
