Stitches Part 2...

Hi folks...after the obligatory Full English Breakfast to charge up the energy levels...we headed off to The NEC for Day 1 of the show...to be greeted by this gorgeous creation...

and this cute chappie...
 and it would have been so rude not to introduce myself officially...
our first visitor of the day was ex Fiskars teamie...the lovely Rach who popped by for a hug...
from then on it was manic...no time to take photos...a day of non stop demo-ing...talking ten to the dozen but it can hardly be considered work when all you are doing is basically playing...chatting and catching up with special crafty friends...my Craftwork Cards buddy...the lovely Julie Hickey...the sweetest of sweethearts...the gorgeous Paula Pascual followed by our Fiskars teamie...the lovely Lynne who brought yummy cakes...then it was my fellow Tim Holtz addicts...Brenda...Jenny and Jennie from Artistic Stamper and my "2 peas in a pod" bestest bud the lovely Dawny P and just across the way...next door but one was my lovely crafty mate...Nikki...Mrs Polkadoodles who was demo-ing Graph It markers and Pan Pastels...
and our neighbours across the way...our lovely chums from Pebeo with the very talented Jenny Muncaster working her magic on canvas...her work is absolutely stunning...completely blew me away and I fear there may well be a whole load of Pebeo products being added to the must-have cubbyhole supplies list. I'll be sharing Jenny's gorgeous work with you all tomorrow.  The end of another busy day and the Fiskars team are heading off to the crafty equivalent of the Baftas...the CRAFTAS...the annual crafty world award ceremony which on reflection may have been a bigga mistake-a but I'll tell you all about that tomorrow.
I'm still not up to speed...there's a suitcase in the hall requiring my attention...if I don't get the dirty laundry in to the machine today it will be walking there all by itself and woohoo there are lots of new Fiskars Scissors to unpack and add to the cubbyhole collection...
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

  1. The atmosphere at the show much be brilliant Kath, so many like minded crafters all in one place. I am surprised your suitcase did not set off the metal detectors at the airport with all those scizzors! I hope you can get yourself sorted out today but at least we have the weekend ahead x

  5. You certainly pack a lot in to the events Kath, love your photos. I have seen photos of the owl before but thought he was about 1 foot high, thanks for showing him in true size - wow! Look forward to hearing about the Craftas now. Anne xx

  7. how did you get all those scissors on the plane without a big fuss? I too thought the owl was a lot smaller until I saw you giving him a hug and a kiss. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures. Valxxx
