and of course the answer is SLAM

just finished the show at Ally Pally - what a wonderful time we had meeting up with friends, customers and anyone else, including lots of holey moleys!Hope all the Pommie bag recipients enjoy their goodies.It was a great show - as always the exhibitions were super - fabulous to see Chris Atkins' work in the pfaff exhibition - I could name drop that one Chris. The highlight for me was meeting Cindy Hickok whose work I have loved since I first came upon it and the pleasure of meeting such a lovely lady. As a special for us, Cindy agreed to sell us a small pile of her book which, if you know her work, you will love. All signed too. If you are interested in a book (no idea of the price as yet), do email as I know they won't last long once Ian gets them on the web.

We have lots of new goodies and my little brain is full of new ideas - awake every morning at 4am racing away. one of our treats this week has been to have Dover Sole and I do believe it was better than NZ flounder...

Today is washing the clothes day - checking the mails - haven't been able to get to the internet so nearly 500 emails to read and answer and tomorrow we are off to Paris where of course I will be posting and with pics attached. A bientot.....

It was lovely to meet you and even lovelier to be one of the recipients of a Pommie Bag! It was like Christmas come early. And thanks again for finding room in your suitcase for some Sheer Heaven for me. I call that service above and beyond the call of duty.
Have a fabulous time in Paris. If you can, try and have lunch at Le Train Bleu at the Gare du Lyon. It's worth it just to see the ceiling (and the food's not bad either!)

Glad Ally Pally was such a good time for you and your Pommie bags went down very well for at least two lucky ladies. I am green with envy but very pleased for them too. It would have been great to meet you and other bloggy friends but I just couldn't make it. Have a great time in Paris and don't forget to put your feet up for at least 5 minutes!

Hi Dale
It was great to see you and Ian at Ally Pally and thanks again for the wonderful Pommie Bag!
Hope you have a wonderful time in Paris - you certainly deserve it!

Like Viv I was one of the lucky winners of the Pommie bag. I made sure I went to Dale's stand first and 'Slam' I had the bag. Thanks to you both! Have a lovely break in Paris.
