long day thursday

We have had a rather long day today - up bright and early with 2 vans filled to the brim and off to the showgrounds to unload then off to breakfast and to collect another load - pretty well finished by 6pm and home where dinner was already waiting to be heated through - very satisfying. We will be up again early for the finihseing touches and for my newsletter readers who are coming to the show I will post my question (still deciding on what it is) tomorrow morning. Here is our stand (still ranch size Maggie - maybe more so than last year)
here it is a bit further on - see all the stencils on the wall - 18 new ones means there are lots

getting there

and as good as done - these familiar baskets crop up once again.

Last thing - having told you that TAF in Brisbane was off next year - well it is now on again and maybe because I do believe that lots of you emailed the organisers about it - I know that everyone who emailed me I told them to email the organisers and it must have worked. All power to the textile people themselves. It will be in June - same time as Papercraft and Scrapbooking show which is in a different hall but one entry will get you into both. No long all day workshops but they are keeping the artists working area which I am delighted about since it was my idea. Those of you who have no idea what happened here will know if they go to the UK shows like Ally Pally just how wonderful it has been over the years to watch Ruth Isset in action for example. I am really looking forward to my 3 days coming up. Thanks to all of your emails wishing us a good show. I think we will sleep well tonight. In fact I think someone else is already asleep......

Is it 12 months already since I was over there-where has the time gone.
I laughed when I saw the bit about "18 new stencils"-I thought you were going to say "waiting to be nicked".

Your stand looks fantastic Dale. How I'd like a good rummage in all those baskets. Have a great show. Glad to know that TAF is on again and that people power may have helped save it.

So much more room than Melbourne!
Might have to think about going to Qld then instead of March.
