Ideal Home Christmas Exhibition

I have had the most brill weekend in a long time.  We travelled up to London to go and see the Ideal Home Christmas Exhibition.

As planned I took my little bag packed with sewing.  I got a lot done on the way up.  Really pleased with what I achieved.

It was absolutely jam packed in central London and I felt so festive coming home.  I really want to go back already.

Look at all those trees :-)

A simply stunning meal at Gizzy's Restaurant - Rudolph pie!  My first try of venison.  I have put off trying it for a long long time but thought I would give it a go and it was the nicest meal I have had in a while.  Sat across from us was Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen tucking into his very own pie, mash and veg!!

I could smell this stand from miles away!  Absolutely stunning and I bought a few goodies.  I shall be ordering more from their website.  They are called Pollyfields.

Love this pic taken at Westminster.

Covent Garden was absolutely roofed.  So packed and I loved it.

Wish I could have these giant baubles at home!!

So so festive.  I could have wandered around here for hours.

I also discovered Sass & Belle.  Amazing things in here.  Needless to say I bought some goodies here too and again, I shall be ordering some more things from their website.

I'm off to tinker with the website.  It's gonna be a LONG hard grafting week this week as FRIDAY is LAUNCH DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still haven't finished the giveaway so I have that to be getting on with.  Christmas decorations are still not completely finished.  I want to set up a couple of mock craft fair tables in my living room to get it looking half decent ready for the first fair next Monday.  I don't want to turn up at my first fair wasting time setting up not having a clue what I want the stall to look like.  Little difficult mind not knowing where you will be placed in a room and what size table you will get but I can practice setting up.

Hopefully I will have lots of crafty things to show you next time :-)
Hope you've all had a good weekend xx
