Hello friends

I'm back, so much for my good intentions of typing blog posts
from the hotel room - a definite fail on my part!
To be honest I was exhausted each evening.  Demoing at the NEC
is a lot of fun but it's quite tiring and by the time I had eaten I was 
craving my bed.  So finally some photos, although not 
as many as I would have liked as I only got to walk the show
once very quickly before it opened yesterday morning.
 This photo was taken when there was a very rare quiet spell!
 My demo table all set up.
To all those who stopped by to chat, I am so grateful and special thanks goes out to
Crafty Interiors - I demoed at their shop on the Saturday and they arrived at the show
on Sunday with tea and cake...big win in my book!
 The huge, and I mean HUGE knitted tree. 

 Also the incredible knitted cabin.
 Upon closer inspection it is all decorated with knitted cakes!
 This stand caught my eye, full of gorgeous wire work goodies and
home decor.

So a quick picture blog post but normal blogging service will resume shortly.
I'm having a morning of paperwork - if I owe you an email I promise it is on its way.
This afternoon emptying my car..I think that will take longer! 

Also big thanks to those who have submitted chocolate wrappers - 
they are all looking so good...I think I've got a tough job ahead deciding on winners!
The closing date is Wednesday 11 November,
if you missed the details they are all here.

Take care friends.
