My SD Paula and I took off early yesterday morning and headed south to the NEC. What an adventure we had. 
Nattering all the way the journey seemed only to be about half an hour long but with the dreaded M6 roadworks took about 3 hours. 
We parked up. Paid the atrocious £10 and made our way to halls 11 & 12. It was packed! 
We just about managed to hussle our way round each show before finding a little hide away to stop for a sit down, butty and drink. Then off again.
I have never seen so much gorgeous material and even found The Cotton Patch who had Tims Eclectic Elements fabric by the meter. I got to touch each design!!!
Gradually the crowds diminished and we could get into the stalls. Both of us spent up and this is my stash hoard of the day.
Some will be fun to use now, some ongoing and the patchwork bag is fun for later.
We had a wonderful day laughing for most of it. Roll on Tatton Park flower show now when we get to have another fun day out.
Thank you for it all Paula XX

You got a great haul there Joanne. I decided not to go this time, the £10 parking last time put me's ridiculous. Anne xx
