After my epic 8.5 hr and 4 changes train journey, I finally made it to Glasgow to meet up with the girls. Here we are in Wetherspoons having a crafty cocktail pitcher before our meal arrived.
After a quick trip to Cass Art and the Art Shop, as I missed out last night, we arrived at the SECC for the show.
And just to prove we were all there.
And Lin grabbed the camera and took one of me, so you know I was there too!
The sign where you get your hand stamped to get out.
One of the isles.
Lin and Helen at one of the stands.
Another view of the isles.
Lin with her huge pair of knitting needles.
Lin and Em shopping.
Then we had a bit of a break to watch a guy doing a mixed media demo with the Pebeo range of products.
Then we bumped into Rob from the MDF man.
Then we went to the cafe area where there was a huge tree made from knitted socks with an angel on top.
Then look, any opportunity for a twitter moment, they were all trying to get on line but the wifi was a bit rubbish.
Then after a cuppa, biscuit and sit down, we left and this was the view from the outside.
Lin, Emma and Helen with their purchases. Then we got the train back to the hotel.
This is what Lin got for me for my birthday, she brought the book and I picked up the graphite pencil and the pens today fro the Art shop.
And we were all fascinated by the PowerTex demo, but we weren't allowed to take any photos, so Helen kindly bought me the bronze version, a molded clay type face and she brought the chipboard pieces with her - thank you.
Then these are my purchases of the day
Emma was unraveling her ribbons to share out whilst all this was going on.
And these are Helen's purchases, YES Helen's, she was very reserved today!!!
Right, that's it for now, we are off out for something to eat - have a nice evening xxx
The alcoholics - je suis drunk springs to mind!
Then as we'd decided on an American Diner for food it'd be rude not to have a burger, which incidently were totally scrummy.
The guy on the next table kindly asked if he could take a photo of all 4 of us, so we obliged whilst we were deciding on pudding.
And then we walked back to the hotel.
