Line Dancing Spinners!!!

Liz, Marj, Nell, Isabel, Sian and I trundled along to The Princess Theatre, Port Talbot, to spin and display work to visitors to our local celebration of Carers Rights Day.
A really well organised event, lovely Christmassy singing by Blaenbaglan Primary School, beautifully laid out tables for guests, with pristine table linen, poinsettias and chocolates, delightful detail. Well done them.
And what did we do, just the usual, demonstrations of weaving, spinning, displays of work and goods, eating gooey eclairs (thanks Norma), etc. oh and well a spot of line-dancing. Not sure how that happened, but there we all were, suddenly up on stage with the pros, causing chaos, tripping everyone up. It must be said only Isabel looked like she had an inkling of which way to go, must be all her country dancing!

What sports they were to invite us up!
What an end to the day!
Isabel sends her apologies for lack of line dancing piccies, butshe was too busy dancing!
If anyone has the photos of her leading the conga whilst spinning on her top whorl spindle, then let me have them! What a woman!!

Liz multi-tasking!
Look here to read more about what the afternoon was all about.
