Well what can I say, the last few times I have met up with my very good friend Barbara Gray of Claritystamp, things do not go according to plan!
Firstly there was the "sausage roll" incident. A few weeks ago, I popped round to drop off a few samples for the Clarity upcoming TV show. When I arrived, Barbara was in the middle of showing her daughter Grace (who was visiting from the USA) how to make a Spag Bol (The Gray Way!), anyway Barbara knew what a fussy eater I am, so prior to my arrival, she popped some sausage rolls in the Aga. As the evening progressed and they sat down to enjoy what they had just made, a smell of burning started to fill the kitchen and the realisation dawned, that something was happening in the Aga! Brave Dave (Barbara's other half) jumped to attention, grabbed a t-towel, flung open the Aga door and appeared with what looked like charcoal briquettes ready for the BBQ! The kitchen door was flung open and the cremated sausage rolls deposited in the garden.

What she didn't tell you on her blog was that as I was leaving, I tripped over the cremated debris and nearly caused myself an injury!!!!
So, then on Saturday just gone, I was doing my first demo of the year at my local craft shop Pantiles Papertole Crafts, Books and Games in Tunbridge Wells
where I was doing a bit of Zentangling using Clarity Stamps and Stencils and we had a visit from the lovely lady herself, Barbara Gray. Somehow during the course of the demonstration, the scarf that I managed to make earlier in the week managed to be turned into a hat and on my head!
Here are some other pictures from the mornings entertainment!

Now, here's my dilema - I am due to pop round and see Barbara one evening this week - should I be worried?!?!?!?!?
