I have clearly been watching too much Gavin and Stacey. "Lush" is Stacey's word of endearment and today, as I think about The Making Place, it just seems to fit. The Making Place is about having a lush time, being with lush people, who make lush crafts and share lush ideas over lush refreshments. I get to be part of a lush team of volunteers and week by week new lush members join in. I do hope you have been lavished with good gifts and joyful company during the break. I just can't help but glimpse a few highlights of 2014. Birthdays are always fun and our second was no exception. The exhibition and open day in June, was exhilarating. (See pictures on earlier post) We held our first craft fair in October what a dream! see picture above and more on the gallery.
I think my most memorable phone call was from Mary. We hadn't seen her for 2 weeks and she is in the habit of always ringing me when she can't make it. It went like this.. "Hello, Diane speaking." "Diane. it's Mary." "oh Mary, thank God you're still alive! " ( I hadn't realised I'd been quite so worried!)
Leanne is our most recent volunteer and she is pictured here with her mum who came to the craft fair. They brought along lovely cakes. Thank you so much. It is so good to have such talented, generous people to work with.
I'm really looking forward to enjoying all the fun we will continue to make together in this new year and I can't wait to meet the new people who will be joining in. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
