London Baby!!

There were some interesting characters wandering around the halls at Olympia last week

After some investigation I discovered that they were part of The Garden of England showcase, highlighting new work from Alice Kettle.

I would loved to have sat down and crocheted  flowers made from recycled plastic bags with these ladies!

Now I am taking a bit of time to rest and recuperate. I had forgotten how wonderful and exhausting London is. After the first morning of experiencing the rush hour tube crush again, I took to the car and impressed my 18 year old with my London driving skills. Some things you never lose!

Showing an older piece today as it is nose to the grindstone here as I prepare for The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show. I have no idea what to expect from this show but I do know that the (new) powers that be at Twisted Thread are giving this one a bit of a revamp and a boost. Still taking place in Olympia. London, but in a different more modern hall and with lots of new features. Including a Quilters in Action (where I will be) and quilts just like at the Festival of Quilts.

Would you like to attend? I would love to see you there.
I have got six tickets to giveaway and I have been giving some thought to how to do this. My first thought was three pairs of two, but then I know that so many of you belong to groups and guilds and would love to go as a group. I have decided that first name out of the hat gets offered all six, but if they only need/want a pair then the next name out of the hat gets offered the remaining ticket. Sound okay?

Obviously this giveaway is restricted to those of you who are able to get to London around 14th -17th March, so I am thinking mainly U.K. readers, but some of you international readers out there might have a private jet you can utilize, or more realistically you may coincidentally be in the U.K. on those dates!!

Anyway all welcome. Just leave a comment to enter.
Winners announced Tuesday 5th March.
Update: I know I have readers who don't blog etc, if you send me an email I will also put your name into the hat!
