Spotty surprise revealed

Here it is.

Today I went along to Sew This and That (LQS) for our Biggest Morning Tea.  We had a very special guest showing her first ever Trunk Show.  Oh we were so lucky - our guest was none other than Joy .
We were able to see first hand her bags, quilts, and yes - even her new buckets, (seen on this post) which are so beautiful.

When we met up for the bloggers picnic in March, we had talked about the trunk show being on this morning.  When I heard she liked licorice allsorts, and I like licorice allsorts, I told her I would bring them along today.  So -

Above is the biggest licorice allsort given to her to remember her first trunk show at the biggest morning tea.  And of course I had to fill it:
Thank you Joy.  It was a lovely morning.  Told you the girls would love you !!!

After the Trunk Show we had an auction of all sorts of goodies donated by the store owners and customers.  It was lots of fun, as always, and the result is almost $1500 to be donated to Cancer Research.
