A very very sad day...

..my Great Nan passed away today :o( I wouldn't normally post this kind of thing on my blog but I know some of you 'Valentines' know my Nan personally as when I first started up my workshops she used to come along.. She's where my creativity comes from!! I remember as a child always going around to hers & rummaging through her craft cupboard & tins of old buttons...she would sew, knit, crochet, stamp, paint you name it, she done it! & she made the bast cakes ever - she truly deserved her nickname of 'cake-nanny'.. I will miss her :o(

Here are some pics of her celebrating her 90th birthday back in 2009..

Sorry to hear your news Clair but she has left you with a crafting legacy. Unfortunately I never inherited my Nan's talent for sewing, can't sew a straight line even with a machine!!
