Crafts at Bovey Tracey

I'm going to apply for this again but i'm running out of time! Bill must make the cd tonight or else. Its a lovely show, and if the weather is good its like a holiday! I'm hoping for a good baby so i'll be able to bring it along if i get accepted.

Hail Cesar!
Cesar Millan is going to be on the radio today, if you love dogs then you'll love Cesar, he is truly the greatest dog whisperer that ever lived, daddy is my hero!!! Please can the dog whisperer come back to normal tv? I'm contemplating getting sky just so i can see his new series.
This is the amazing view from Alexandra Palace.
I liked this knitted boat with a lovely knitted kitty on it but i'm afraid to say it wasn't a patch on the knitted ginger bread house which is touring some far eastern country at the moment. There was some amazing stuff at the show my favourites were the graduates work and Alice Kettles show. I got some lovely presents from the Eternal Maker stand and from the Cloth Kits stand too.
Hurrah we made it! It was quite an intense show, full on four days of knitting and stitching maniacs everywhere! I'm pleased to report that the small babe was very good and i only had to put up with swollen ankles for a few days. It was strange living a life like Alan Partridge. Get up have breakfast at the comfort hotel, spend the day at the show yabbering on, home to the comfort hotel and bed, then the same again the next day and the next day and the next day. Thank the lord for Cafe Rouge (next door to the comfort hotel) and their green salads, i wouldn't have been able to do it without you. What a treat to meet all those lovely people that appreciate the work and let you know that they love it!

The Knitting and Stitching show.

I'm sorry, but i've got a pregnancy brain and realised i didn't write up anything about this huge event! So Bill and I (with baby safely tucked in tummy) drove up to London laden with goodies to show and sell in our tiny Fiat Punto. Thank the lord for sat navs! It was fairly easy getting there and straight forward setting up, we had some good help from our dear friend Catherine and managed to put up a good display.
