The tenants conferance

Hi again ,every one ,before it becomes ancient history , I thought I would post some pictures of our Tenants conferance that we attended on November 1st ,held recently at the Deaf /blind association building (we hold it there as we need a big venue ,so therefore we are suporting a worthy cause ,rather than one of the big hotel conferance rooms where they charge the earth )As well as work shops ,(the one I went to was safety in the home )We have speakers ,on varios subjects, competions ie best garden etc Lots of lovely eats and chats to our friends ,This year a group of us thought it would be nice for us to hold a craft exibition ,of craft work done by our residents ,Needless to say I took some of the things I have made ,
but Jackie ,Jen and I were delighted by the amount of clever people who brought along examples of their handiwork Janice and Dick our Tenant Participation Managers were pleased with the results too ,and gave us all some delicous choccies to show their Appreciation

Here I am all packed up to go ! big bag of craft stuff and table covers etc ,and my old sewing machine not the one I use ,an old one I have ,that added to the display !!



Jackie ,Jen and I ...(the three J's )



Here is our lovely Janice showing of the cake that was made for the occasion,

We were entertained by these very talented singers ,

Jan and Maria ..who is a Housing manager chatting away ,


See the toy dog wearing Kizzies sweater ! and my Quillow

My poncho ,and sewing machine with a part made cushion cover !,can be seen in this one beside that book of beautiful paintings ,we also had the most amazing cross stitch embroidery on show too .



Bestest friends Jackie and Jan
And last but not least Maurice and I ......
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our pictures ,as ever with love from ....

It's always lovely to see your smiling face. All your crafts are so nice. It must have taken some work to put that display together. Glad you had a great time.

Wow, there are some "crafty" people in your group. I'm impressed. I can't do any of that stuuf. I'm still trying to knit a scarf (my first attempt) that I started last March. Thanks for sharing your pictures...Linda in WA

As always, wonderful pictures and a lovely entry Jan. Have a great weekend!

Karen said...

Ok, Ok, looks like I have to get crackin' and up load some pictures of the knitting I do for charity, along with the group of ladies in their late seventies and eighties sitting around stitching together patches into a blanket. Great pics; handsome Maurice! but he's the lucky one...giggle

I used to have a dolly like the one at the top, i think auntie Jean got me it. Many many thanks to you and pops for my lovely new shrug, it's lovely and looks brill with my dress. It fits really nice too so I am well happy. I am typing poetry and the moment and dodging a mouse that Tilly bought into conservatory at four this morning. Doors locked now etc. Love you both x x x

Sara said...

Looks like a great day m'dear, the photies are lovely... I do think that Maria should change her name to something beginning with J though, to fit in with the rest of you ;o)

Seriously though Jan...there is some beautiful crafts to be seen on display. You are all so clever! I wish I lived closer and was able to come and have a browse. I wouldn't have minded helping you to get rid of those chocolates either..hahahaha!
Hugs to you. xxx
