The big catch up...

Blimey it has been an age since I last had a chance to write a little blog entry. It has been a busy few months of tearoom fun, 1st Birthday Parties, Crafternoons, Jubilees and Glamping.

I'll start off with a little about C&C's first birthday celebrations last month. The tearoom turned one on the 7th May and to celebrate, I invited my loyal customers to a little party at the tearoom. There was cake, cava and homemade lemonade and plenty of cheer. Thanks to every one who popped in. Let's hope we can party again next year.
Crafternoons have been popular with more people coming along each month to learn something new and take home something beautiful. Over the last few months we've been making cloud magnets after wet felting your own felt and printing your own card after making your very own stamp.
At C&C we even had members of the Gaelic community attending "Cofaidh & Cearden" Coffee & Crafts sessions for five weeks where participants took part in a Crafternoon but had the opportunity to practice/speak Gaelic with other Gaelic speakers.
We covered a different area of craft each week from printing to cake decorating.

Then there was the Jubilee. C&C offered something special over the holiday weekend, a Jubilee Tea. I made raspberry lemonade, cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches with a huge scone topped with cream, jam and strawberries and a special pot of Darjeeling. The special tea went down a treat with my customers.
There's a couple of new additions to the tearoom. These two Parker Knoll chairs were donated by one of my lovely customers.
He overheard me telling someone that I was after a couple of these chairs to make a 'cosy corner' in the window area. A few days later, they arrived. I plan to re upholster them at some point, but for now, they look great with handmade cushions and crocheted blankets. They are unbelievably comfortable! I sometimes sit on them at the end of the day while I wait for a cake to bake. Bliss...

Now... I've had a pretty hectic few months and was REALLY in need of a break. So, I got away for a few days Glamping. You may remember earlier in the year I mentioned that I was hoping to go glamping this year. Well I did and I'll tell you all about it in the next post.
