we made it!

The clock ticked 5pm and there were cheers all round ("with love" as Jodie said) ... we had all made it through the five days of the Stitches and Craft Show!

So how was it? For a first timer, like me, it was fun, exciting, interesting, full of lovely people, an excellent opportunity to get some feedback on what I make, but above all, it was wonderful to be surrounded by/talk to like-minded and extremely talented people. The Incubator is an amazing space - it was a privilege to be part of it, and a dream come true considering I was just a interested bystander a year ago. Here are a few more pics of some of the clever people I've spent the last 5 days getting to know, laughing with and generally having a wonderful time ...

Tegan & Lara - Ink & Spindle

Michaela (Wren's Nest) and Gemma (Oz Handmade) (who was the best neighbour ever!)

There were lots more people that I didn't get to take a photo of, but I am sure you will see many more pics around blogland. Thankyou to all of the lovely bloggers and blog-lurkers who stopped for a chat - it is just the best to put a face to the blog! That's it from me on the show ... normal transmission will resume tomorrow! 

P.S. I hope everyone enjoyed Mother's Day!

Wow, love the pictures and your designs. I am going to buy one of your tea towels very soon to hang in my kitchen.

Also have just started a new house design blog - Love to hear from you and get comments as you have great designs.

Hope we can catch up soon.

And....BREEEEEEEEEAAAATHHHE. And then do a decent stint of feet up and gazing out the window with no particular place to be. Congratulations Nic, your 'stuff' looked fabulous.
