Seen In Whitby 5/7

I mentioned on Monday the delightful little Shambles shopping arcade so here is a quick peek inside. Some of you will recognise the lady in the picture busy browsing the craft shop display. For those of you who haven’t met her the lady is my wife Maureen who particularly enjoys crafting and especially making cards for all sorts of occasions.

 

She spent ages in this shop, which was really good because I spent all that time outside shooting all and sundry with my camera, nothing like working as a team.

Now that is teamwork, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It's not always as easy as that Ray, as I'm sure you'll realise.
Well suited then aren't you!!!
Brian Walbey: Well most of the time Elizabeth, we need to be after nearly 41 years.

I'm sure you both operate as a smooth & professional team Brian
Brian Walbey: Well most of the time Chris, one can never be what the lady desires 100% of the time can one smile

You two are like hand in glove, Brian. I love it. smile
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't quite say that Ginnie but we rub along nicely, as they say, and have done for 41 years + three years courting.

Lots and lots of detail here, Brian. Perhaps we will see Maureen the other way round some time?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. You perhaps didn't see this posting of mine from last year http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2011/05/27/weddings-week--55--our-big-day/
A great team indeed Brian. I presume that Maureen was so concentrated that she did noticed you shooting her!
Fine capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. I think she gets used to me including her in some of my shots.
Hi Maureen! I like these craft shops, full of things I wouldn't have a clue how to usegrin
Brian Walbey: No I wouldn't either Bill, but she does do some really nice cards for people.
Good team arrangement!
Brian Walbey: And may it continue so for a good few more years yet Juan.
what a lovely little shop this is
Brian Walbey: Maureen somehow seems drawn to these shops just as I am to bookshops and camera shops Chantal.

I like your narrative- and like Maureen (I had recognized her before I read your information - her full hair!) I had spent soem time to study all the cards -I bought in the Lakes so funny sheep cards! I'm sure that I would have found some lovely things in the shop- I especially love the NT gift (the German word 'Gift' means poison- and therefore we are always laughing when entering such a gift shop!) shops with all the soaps, fudge...
Brian Walbey: Maureen really does enjoy all her craft work Philine, indeed she goes to a craft group with other ladies every Wednesday where they make all sorts of things in addition to cards.
Team work is good when it is time to carry the packages too.
Brian Walbey: That could well be the downside Mary, only joking.
I hope you made the most of the spare time you had Brian. You have to grab these opportunities when theyy arise.
Brian Walbey: I took a fair few shots Richard, Maureen tends to lose track of time in craft shops.

Bit like Sheila and me she shopping I'am with my camera.

Like the flooring.
Brian Walbey: I think these sort of things come with getting a tad older Pedroeric, and being comfortable with each others likes and dislikes.

Daisy Crafts sounds a bit effeminate for Yorkshire Brian. I should have expected it to be called Granite grit crafts.
Brian Walbey: Whatever the shop is called Chad she would still have gone in!

LOL.. sounds like the secret of a good marriage; each doing what you want to do wink
Brian Walbey: I think we're used to each others likes and dislikes by now Alan, she often does other things while I wander about with the camera. While we were away in Minehead last year with a group from church one lady asked Maureen if she and I ever walk around together.
I don't blame Maureen for spending so much time browsing in this shop, Brian. They can be fascinating places to explore and you never know what goodies you may find.
Brian Walbey: Well I know that lots of ladies do enjoy all this crafting and card making Beverly, indeed Maureen produces some lovely cards and also belongs to a club for ladies who do all sorts of different crafts.
A crazy looking place, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Not really a mans shop Tom.
I love this type of shop, Brian. So timeless. Very nice capture. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn. It is a very good shop for those ladies who like to do craft projects and so on.

Maureen is looking for peel offs, I used to be into all these crafts until I started with my camera. I also used to work in a craft shop smile
Brian Walbey: Maureen would have enjoyed working in a craft shop I suspect, she does spend quite a lot of time card making and so on.
It always surprises me how expensive these places are for a few simple materials.
Brian Walbey: Yes I do agree John but I always think, as with us and our photography, if it is a hobby then one doesn't usually mind paying out as long as one isn't being ripped off.
This is a place that Penny would spend hours in also Brian... she makes all sorts of crafts for and with her grandkids... perhaps the next time that you introduce Maureen... you will show us her better sidegrin....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Good to hear about Penny and crafting, Maureen really enjoys it, indeed she goes to ladies group on Wednesdays where they do all sorts of different things.

A proper Aladin's cave!
Brian Walbey: Not much for we men in there though Mike.

After 44 years, you do a great job together. Please do that for many more years.
Can you take a picture of Maureen 'in action' making cards??
Wonderful picture.
Brian Walbey: I hope we have many more years together Astrid. I will take a picture of Maureen and her card making when she next takes over the Dining Room and table with all her stuff.
