Having had a bit of a sudden start to my day, a little poetry en route to the SECC this morning came as a welcome surprise and a few minutes reading and photographing this window by the entrance to the Art College were well spent.
Another slow start to the show meant that I could spare a few minutes giving the Extreme Knitting workshop a go. Rather fun - and we learned a very simple trick to keep a firm edge to a piece of straight knitting which will be useful in all kinds of projects.
After ten minutes or so, a small girl hovered on my right shoulder so I gave up my place in the hope that a youngster might get hooked! It was really great to see so many young girls taking such an interest in all kinds of crafts here. Let's hope they will continue to pursue needle skills of all kinds so that they don't get lost to future generations.
Five o'clock and the welcome announcement that the show was closing and the five Treasures set to work.
Two hours later, all that remained:
See you in Birmingham!
