Getting ready

This is Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show this year. You may have seen the photos before. (Unfortunately my computer won't let me access any files so I had to use the only ones I had on Flickr).
I'm psyching myself up for the big trip to Sydney this week, the big setting-up-the-stand effort and the big standing-up-for-five-days-and-talking-a-lot thing. Wishing I could have taken my fabulous assistants with me.
I'm VERY excited at the prospect of catching up with so many fabulous crafty types in the incubator section (fourth floor at the show) - with loads of my favourite bloggers doing their thing there. I wish I could get out and actually see the rest of the show, knowing that the new management will make is SO much fun. Last year's Sydney show was great in the Living Creatively section so you can expect more of that on a grand scale this year!

And of course I'm very excited at the prospect of meeting customers, bloggy friends and lots of new crafty types. It really is a joy to put names to faces and faces to names (and it's even more fun when those faces want to talk about sewing!). I hope that you'll come and say hello if you're in the area...?
...
And I REALLY hope that I packed the correct Ikea tools for my new display shelves.

Good luck, Nikki!!!
I whish I were there to help you! It's a dream just a dream to go to Australia!

Tell me you have had a practise run? That all the bits and bobs are there? That you won't be needing a whirlwind trip to the nearest Sydney Ikea to locate the three missing whatsits (strangely identified as Sven in the instructions) to get those new display shelves up?

Thinking about it, three Sven whatsits wouldn't be all bad...
