well bloggers here we are again, the latest update from the uk. today was filled with fun, demos, and of course lots of laughs. where to begin??? how about early in the morning at about 6:00am when people should still be sleeping? not us... we woke this morning to a blanket of white stuff - seriously? can winter be on it's way already? please??? nevertheless it's a calming sight and we had our wonderful breakfast by the fire before heading off to the NEC for the stitches trade show.
the day was spent demoing and sharing ideas with the wonderful shop owners and attendees of the show. i do love the uk!
of course the day was filled with comedy as our good friend dy from art from the heart has been spending the days with us. i just love being with her - makes you smile from the inside, such a genuine and loving friend. she (along with mario) have been there to make sure everything has gone perfectly from our workshops yesterday, to making sure our demos are all ready to go!
after a long day at the show, we headed out to the wing-wah which is the ultimate in chinese buffet. this place has become an annual tradition with our incredible uk distributors personal impressions. we've stopped here for the past 5 years to eat, drink, laugh, catching up, and the annual birthday person (of course it's usually not anyone's birthday at the time).
this year, claudine got the birthday nod as the wing-wah does it up right complete with ice sculptured swan, flaming sparkler, and piles of ice cream. everybody gets into the joke and celebrates with full honors.
jayne from PI is such a joy and her and we have the most laughs throughout the night over just about anything - i simply adore jayne!
our night ended with a drink from the bar with great friends and the perfect ending to a wonderful day in the uk.
so tomorrow bloggers, check back from some exciting details on my QVC-UK appearance - until then...t!m
