As we all know that before any raffle can start we need to fold the tickets and this year it was quite a mammoth task as we ran out of raffle tickets and had to buy some more.

This years raffle had a little twist in it that meant there was a main prize for the first and last raffle ticket which kept everyone on their toes until the very end.

Liss won the first prize which was a lovely Gregor donated by Gayle and Rosie Shortell, Rosie made him a lovely outfit and he came with his truck and backpack.

The final prize was won by Jonny and it was a lovely blonde gingham repaint by Janet.

Doll mums daughter won a baby donated by Petrana

Shelly Cuff won a brunette Sasha donated by Ginger

Anette won an early gotz that was donated by a generous anonymous person

There were many great raffle prizes and the weekend raised a total of over £1500 for The Save The Children charity.

I would like to personally thank

In the evening after everyone had arrived we all went to dinner, unfortunately this is the only photo I was able to take that evening.

the next day was Saturday and it got off to a great start, first we all had breakfast and then it was off to do some crafting.

Hey, Pierrot shouted “are you nearly packed yet”,” not yet “,I responded there are still a few things to pack.

My hubby had made a bet that I would not get everything in the car and I was determined to prove him wrong.

 

IMG_1004

Pierrot was trying his hardest to capture my attention as he was so excited not only was he coming  to the Sasha celebration weekend, but he was then travelling with his brothers and sisters to America to be part of The Sasha festival in New York. So after I assured him that everything was in hand he sat very quietly with  a smile on his lips.

Then we were off at last.

 

We arrived at Eastwood Hall in the blistering sunshine and unpacked, later that evening, before turning in for the night, I managed to set up the Robin Hood display in the lobby ready for our guests to arrive the nest day.

As you can see Maid Marion, Friar Tuck and Robin Hood are taking a well earned break from organising the Sasha Celebration Weekend. Maid Marion has been very busy preparing a meal for the boys and Robin has been giving the not so Mighty/Major Oak tree a trim.

Well everyone there is not long to go now and I hope you are all looking forward to meeting up with friends old and new and having a Sashatastic time.

Not forgetting of course that we are raising money for charity and our cause this year is Save The Children.

As we are now getting very close to the Sasha celebration weekend, if you have any raffle prizes that you are not bringing with you can you please send them to me.

Thank you to all those that I have received so far and below are some photos of some more raffle prizes that I have  recently received.

You will see more raffle prizes at the Sasha Celebration Weekend which are being kept as a surprize. I can feel the excitement mounting.

Hi everyone this it to let you know that The Sasha Celebration Weekend is now full. Janet Tricia and I are looking forward to meeting old friends and new for a sashatastic time.

Now as you already know the craft that I will be demonstrating at the Sasha Celebration weekend is making and decorating masks for your Sasha, Gregor or baby doll.

I have added a few photos below of the sort of thing you can do, I have many more embellishments this is just to give you a guide. The mask with the green feathers was made by my 3 year old grandson so this is not difficult at all and should leave you plenty of time to enjoy some of the other crafts being held on the day.

I am making the mask bases and bringing them with me so if you have a preference to which colour or doll you want to make the mask for please let me know, otherwise I will just bring a selection with me.

There will be a prize for the best mask made and this will be announced at dinner so you might want to take into consideration the outfit your doll will be wearing and whether you want your mask in a matching colour.
