A heck of a Makey 'do'

Under there somewhere is the breakfast bar....really! That is what the sixty goodie bags for the Makey do' look like all made up and nearly ready to go. I will add any last minute bits and bobs and then tie them up with some curling ribbon to prevent peeping! I had such fun doing these and the friends that helped were amazed at the generosity of the crafters who had sent their work.
Thanks for all your kind comment on the last post, Anna's birthday was a blast and really helped to put things into perspective. Now the panic has eased I have felt able to get on with the making and organising for the big day.

If you wondered what 100 button rings might look like in a big luscious pile on a table- here you go, and if you were curious about how 50 hair accessories might look spread in a big arc- look no further.I am now working on making up 50 brooches and then....we'll see... but I have so many ideas I expect I'll still be making on the day.

I have been having some wranglings over whether or not I would be able to use the area outside the venue for the Makey do and I had a phone call today to tell me that dependant on a meeting on Monday I may well be able to have the forecourt. This is such exciting news but will give me just four days to fill the area. This is not the time frame I would have chosen but it is lovely to be able to accept more stallholders and make more plans. I may never do this again so I may as well make it B-I-G!!
