Knitting and Stitching show friday past

Well I went to the knitting and stitching show on friday last week... to meet up with Laura and Annette as well as Magie and Bob from African Fabric Shop. We had an added bonus of meeting Dionne Swift who is a wonderful artist .. do check out her website. Dionne was very excited as she sold a piece to her previous tutor in art ... how cool is that and the seven of us went out for dinner at a turkish place .... food was fantastic...
The two weeks before this I had been sick with some sort of flu which by the way I still have a croaky voice... the flu brought on a toothache .. which I had to have two fillings and another tooth pulled .. man that has been two this year... whats going on with that????
While at the show I ran into quite a few blogger friends . Maggie Grey, Purple Missus Lynda Monk, Carol McFee who I have known on the internet for about 10 years now WOW ... while at the booth watching Lynda and Carol do some demos from their book .. which by the way if you have not got it ... I suggest running out to get it .
I finally met Margaret Digital Gran ... she was wonderful .. it was too quick a visit really. Also as I stood there ... I saw this lady with a bag on her shoulder .. with a piece of work on it .. that was felt and velvet ... and guess who it was Jackie ... Dog Daisy .. who I of course recognized her from this bag.. I did see Ferret as well shopping away ha it was a great day I THINK I JUST WENT TO MEET PEOPLE there ? Wow how is that for linking up ... in more ways then one.

So sorry our paths didn't cross at Ally Pally - I was there on Friday, too. Maybe next year? Did see Margaret R, Carol and Lynda. Still recovering from my weekend in London!
