Calorie Free

What a fun day yesterday... I went to Peterborough with my friend Jane to a workshop at Angela's shop Art and Stitch, where we made "chocolates" from felt with Linda Beer (who just happens to be Gill's little sister). It was a lovely stress free, no pressure sort of day and I ended up with a box of calorie free chocolates! My sons were not impressed... they prefer the sort you can eat!


Linda even gave us these little labels to go in the box.

And these are everyone elses chocolates... although it does look as though someone has eaten a couple in the middle!


Continuing with my new stress free lifestyle.... I'm going to be gone for a for a few days. See you next week!
