Good morning Friday!
Day 1 at the NEC.
Stand all lovely,
Staff all lovely...
The very lovely and talented Maria Simms,
The wonderful Jayne; she who knits tits.
Notice Dave on the phone....
Oh! There he is, on the phone again...
Ah, Heather, our angel with the kneepads.
And gorgeous Chloe, Jayne the tit-knitter's daughter.
And so the scene is set.
The stencils, the stamps, the fabulous samples.
9.29 am. The crowd is waiting patiently for the bell to ring.
And then the show was announced open, and boom!
The next however many hours flew by.
Friends turned up, made new friends, did loads of arty demos, and before I looked up, it was 5.30. And everyone had gone home.
Time to restock, after a flat-out day, and then go eat.
It was raining cats and dogs though.
So we made plastic carrier bag hats, and asked the security guard to take a pic with my Ipad.
So gave him a quick lesson on how to keep his hands out of the way!
And there we are:
Diamonds - each and every one.
1 down. 3 to go.
But what a team.
I am really happy to be here,
And that's primarily down to them.
Come and see us if you get a chance. It's a pretty cool show!
