Jessie Chorley workshop at Indigo Moon

Friday evening was spent in the great company of these two, Tina and Jessie. 
We visit Jessie's shop when we go down to London, its a must if you are a stitcher/papercrafter and love vintage.  Even if you are not its such a lovely shop so go and have a look.

Tina Gilmore owner of Indigo Moon in Montgomery, Wales along with her lovely hubby Gav has a fantastic stock of antique furniture downstairs and upstairs a gallery and studio.

On Saturday they had me hard at work all day creating a journal from an old book.
Look at the concentration on my face.




There's still tons to do in it but I'm happy with the way its going.
At the end of a very creative day we had a show and tell.
This is the front cover of a wedding journal  Hilary was making.
  The wedding is to be held in France and its on my birthday.
This is one of the rooms in Tina's shop/workshop.  I could have stayed forever.
These cuties are made by Tina's friend Nichola  Hulmston better known as Ninneynoo 
and can be found on Facebook.
When we were ready for leaving on Sunday, 
after picking up the wooden cabinet soon to be housed in my workroom, 
Tina gave me a gorgeous gift of two of her miniature
framed pieces and a card with some very special words in.
Thank you Tina, Jessie & Gav.
Not forgetting Nichola and Emma for all the cuppas and cake.
A special hug for Lizzie the golden retriever 
It was a fantastic weekend
