Well, everything that's going to be done for Stitches has been done now and Thomas and Tara are both looking increasingly fed up as they've watched me putting things into my case - a sure sign that I'm "abandoning" them. I just about managed to cram my clothes in there but have had to leave out a beaded jacket and a second pair of shoes! The case is bursting at the seams and weighs a ton but that's par for the course - thank goodness for wheels! My Tim Holtz bag is also full, so if it isn't in there already it won't be going!
Anyway, I'm just signing in to say thank you for all the lovely comments and the good wishes for the show - it's always an exciting few days even though it's hard work. I've ticked off all the jobs from my list of things to do...boring stuff like cleaning so I don't come back to housework.
My neighbour is looking after my two terrors while I'm away, but they'll sulk nevertheless! So, all set for my train journey tomorrow followed by the trek through Birmingham International into the NEC - there are lifts and travelators but it always takes an age to get there. Time for a few hours relaxing now then before a reasonably early night and, hopefully, a good night's sleep.
I'll have plenty of pictures and tales to share next week I'm sure!
