I've gone, shuffled off to share the Tart's blog - you'll find me there now, when she lets me near the computer...

The Tea Party

The Crafternoon was a great success and Lindsay was very chuffed to raise £330 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Obviously the main attraction of the afternoon for certain folks was the promise of men in kilts. So here we have:
The Three Graces or
Macbeth's three witches or
Wilson, Keppel and Betty (for those of you old enough to remember your grandmother talking about them!) or
Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod or perhaps
Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil (aye, right)

Seriously, though, Joe, Hugh and Ross did a great job serving tea, coffee, cake and large amounts of cheek, and they did all the washing up too.
Other stars of the day were Lorraine and Anne who stitched and stitched and brought goodies to sell, and Trisha, Queen of Hearts, who supplied the chocolate fountain (which promptly gave up the ghost!) and made the day of children large and small, and brought her own lavender and produce to sell too. And there were other bonuses - Hazel and Sheila and Alison all arrived with home baking to supplement the supplies. Heroes every one!
Little me? I saw a crumb or two of cake from an empty tin. Such is my lot....

Sid has completely embarrassed me by getting all giddy over the Gents in kilts. The cake crumbs are better than nothing, I say. : )

Have reprimanded herself for missing out the legs in the photograph since she has received complaints about it...

Yes! Legs would have been good! You can't sniff much higher up than that anyhow...

(Tara is enamoured of manly-kilted men as well, and so TOTALLY wishes she could have been there... What is it with these human females?)
