first part handwerkbeurs Rotterdam

Well it all started with a lot of stress..... I ordered some metal shelves to present the yarn and knitting kits and they weren't delivered the day before we had to go and set up...... a lot of phonecalls and e-mails later they promised it would be delivered at 8 of the morning of the set up day.... and pffff they did, unfortunatly it did cost me a night of sleep
One other thing that was that due to personal stuff my friend and sample knitter Anne couldn't make it for all 4 days, we both had looked very much forward to do this together, well at least this show we'll have 1 day :)

Everything fitted perfect in the car and because I had some place left in front DD1 could come along

She worked very hard to make the stand look great and so did Alet and Marian

A very big suprise was it when these to came to visit us

bringing us these tickets

These women are the gymnastic trainer from DD1 and when they heard I brought her with me they picked her up so she and I could spend some time watching the gymnastic teams practice for the World Championships. They offered also to watch DD1 while I set up the booth. Ladies a very big thank you!!
Take a look at her

Finally we left at 9 were om at 11 and we're both very tired but the booth looked great

I Knit Weekender

Time for some pictures I promised of my London weekend :) We had fun, not enough sleep and my Twitter account decided to stop working from the moment I arrived in London :( I arrived in London Thursday evening and Jon picked me up at the airport, from there to his place, dropped my bag off, loaded the truck with all the stuff and off we went to set up for the show. Here's Jon posing

back at his place we chatted way too long (and drunk way too much wine) at a very very late souper

The next morning we needed to get up very early to be on time needing a few more hours to make the booth look great, and it did :)

Friday eveving we went out for dinner with friends and we had so much fun, it turns out I speak better English then my friends speak Dutch but I still don't know what the Irish waiter said :)
Saterday was a lot bussier, and we were totally wasted when we got back home at Jon's place.
Sunday Jon and Mr EasyKnits took me to Greenwich parc sight seeing. What a beautiful parc wish we would have something like that here

followed by a nice meal, we had a perfect Sunday....
