our stand – we were really pleased with the way it turned out.
Rachael and Millie, sporting looks from appropriate decades.
I guess we are really lucky that this is such a local event – being just down the road from us, it was great we could go home and sleep in our own beds – rather than join the camping masses on site. I have nothing against camping – in fact I enjoy it – but i have no desire to enjoy it whilst working at a show!
Especially not when I knew what would follow Vintage.
Yup – Festival of Quilts.
There are a few shows each year that you need your full energy up for. And Festival of Quilts is one of them. Can I just say, despite the fact that we were all pretty tired by then, there was such a great vibe at Festival this year that it didn’t matter. It was great meeting so many people, some old friends, some new – and as usual for festival it was busy busy busy. I managed to get out to see a couple of other stands on Saturday morning before opening time, but as usual planned my own shopping for the Sunday. Which didn’t quite happen, due to me having a car accident on Saturday night which involved me ending up in London, rather than Birmingham on Sunday. Don’t worry, I am fine (at least, finer than the car) but am still gutted about my shopping time at Festival. Luckily I totally scored a great piece of Liberty fabric from Fabrics Galore – I will let you know at a later date what I do with it.
So as you can see it was a busy few weeks, and weeks in which I can only say I am totally proud of my team and how they all pulled together and didn’t moan at me working them so hard and took everything on board without so much as a blink of an eye. We totally could not do anything without our great team.
But finally now, a time to catch my breath… Until tomorrow at least.
