Ally Pally been and gone

Last Tuesday we flew out of Perth on a Tuesday afternoon and arrived in London at 6 am on Wed ( don't worry about the time change) got the train and bus to Alexandra Palace arriving at 8 am and here we are at our empty little stand but everything here waiting for us. Grant had been and gone!

Later on the day all set up ready for action. The stand looked lovely - well we thought so!

Had a fabulous four days and watched the tables getting leaner with goodies.

Sunday night all done and dusted - fewer boxes going to Perth full of dome returning stock and plenty of new goodies including lots of lovely Khadi books - for those folks waiting patiently!

We had a wonderful time - I think this was one of the best shows for me because I caught up with lots of great people - friends - colleagues - customers etc and I found a few new excitements. Sometimes there isn't much new to find. I tossed ideas around with a few people and if course being busy working means my creative brain has been extra busy so loads of ideas in my notebooks

And it was so lovely catching up with Shelagh on Sunday

Last night we stayed with Grant and Hannah and managed a nice night out last night

Right now we have just arrived in Avignon waiting to collect our car

Looking forward to a wonderful week at Menerbes

Great to see you, the stand did look good. It is always such a lovely splash of colour. Have a good holiday, see you next year.

Your stand did look beautiful and very inviting, even though I only saw it on Facebook! Lovely for you to meet up with all those colleague and customer friends. Enjoy your week of R&R and have a good journey home.

Glad you had a good show. Sorry to have missed you when we dropped by to purchase slushies on Sunday. The stand looked good though. Enjoy your holiday.
