DD & I went to the Southern Wool Show on Saturday, it was held at Newbury Race Course which is not far from us.
It opened at 10 but I collected DD at 9 as she had some last minute shopping to do for when the children return to school.
We arrived at the show at 10:05 and the carpark was already filling up.
There were in excess of 50 stalls there so plenty to look at.
There were stalls covering knitting, weaving, crochet, spinning, felting & dyeing, so lots of choice.
DD bought a throw and some other bits and pieces, I was very restrained and bought just 4 skeins of yarn and a pattern for a shrug.
The show was well organised and very well attended, in fact by the time we left a about 1ish it was heaving.
We popped upstairs to the food court for a cup of tea at 11:30, we would have eaten there but found the food choices a bit disappointing, there seemed to be a choice between a pasty or a slice of cake.
I feel a little more thought could have been given here, but maybe as they had a captive audience they didn't care.
I could happily have stayed longer browsing the stalls but the noise levels were affecting my hearing aids, I couldn't take them out as I wanted to talk to the stall holders.
I don't know how much it cost to stall out but the footfall was huge so I assume everyone was happy.
I dropped DD home and collected my bedding that she had washed for me, I returned to the boat clutching a black sack full of clean washing and poor CHS nearly had heart failure as he thought the bag was full of stuff I'd bought.
I could see him wondering where the hell I was hoping to put it all!
