The result is that I came home very poor but happy and today I can hardly put one foot in front of the other! :-)
Because I knew I had a lot of walking to do I didn't take my 'proper' camera with me, but decided to manage with my phone camera. In truth, I am a bit ashamed of some of these photos but at a big exhibition it's always a problem taking shots while being jostled by the crowd and of course, as I had my wheeled walker with me, I was holding people up. I bet people were glad when I left!
I have decided to show my eclectic mix of photos for those who can't get there to see the wonderful work on show.
Where I know the artist's nme I have added it and I apologise to those whose names are omitted.
The first two were on the 4 x 4 group's stand
The next four were on John Allan's stand
The next two were Sue Walton's work on the Jabberwocky stand with Ann Small, this was all such fun!
I am struggling to remember which stand this the following inages were from but I think it is the New Embroidery Group
When we came out to catch the coach home it was a gloriuosly sunny, but very cold, afternoon and there are specatcular views right across North London to the City Of London. If you look hard at the buildings on the horizon you can see the new building there , which I think is nicknamed 'the needle'
appropriately enough to be seen from a stitching show!
The decorated outside of the building
My neice Ann Divine in the forground schlepping her illgotten gains from the sales halls! Good job you can't see my array of goodies
