Im going to go for it!

When you're told after 10 years service and 20 years experience in one field that your role will be redundant, what do you do?
Two years ago I was told that all of my team, me included would be made redundant.  It's taken a while to transition the work which has fortunately given me time to plan and prepare for my exit. 
I couldn't help but take it personally at first and have gone through every emotion you can think of, now its getting closer I've started to get just a little bit exited, even though I really love my job. 
I fully realise that things are going to be different and most definitely less money for more hard work but I'm sure it will all be worth it! And could this be the opportunity I've been waiting for?
The end of my corporate life is now getting closer, I only have 9 weeks until my leave date.  I'm starting to realise that it's now or never to try and make a go of turning my passion into my job. 
Thanks to all the lovely comments and feedback we have had from the shows I've finally made my decision and going to give this a real go.
Pin It and Stitch could be my light at the end of the tunnel!

The Calm after the Storm.

All back home & unpacked, we survived driving the van and returned it in one piece. 

We had a fantastic 4 days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We met so many lovely people. We now have a weeks rest until we have to do it all again for the Malvern Quilt Show.
We will be there on the 26th - 28th of October 2012. Come and see us!

As soon as we have show dates for the rest of the year and 2013 we will up-date the blog.

Alexandra Palace Knitting and Stitching Show.

Day 1, 2 & 3: Our plan was to keep you updated on what we were up to each day whilst we're at Alexandra Palace but we haven't had  a moment to spare.  I'm sure we must have cut hundreds of fat quarters by now, I'm starting to go off the little bleeders! 

Not one to moan but we haven't even had a chance to shop yet,  I'm determined to make a dash for it tomorrow and make a purchase or two.

Thank goodness we have had such lovely customers to make it all worthwhile.
