I am a bit late to the party, but I'm here now!
I am linking up to a wee blog hop for everyone attending the Fat Quaterly Retreat in London this weekend. So if you are not coming, I can only apologise, you must be heartily sick of hearing about it!!
I am so excited to be meeting everyone at the weekend! I feel as if I'm meeting up with so many old friends, even if we have never stood face to face before.
My name's Jo and I will be wearing this adorable badge made by the very talented Emily.
I am a 40 something mother of 2 grown up sons, very happily married to Jonathan (25 years since we met the other day!). I run a shop in Edinburgh, selling lots of lovely homewares, gifts, and now fabric and wool (now available on-line too!), and I teach patchwork, crochet and lots of other things at the weekend.
Despite living in Scotland for the last 23 years I still have my London accent.
There is a little picture of me up in the top left hand corner which is how I really look (but a bit older now!). But this is how I looked on Saturday night at a Eurovison party.
Who know's, maybe I'll be wearing that wig on Saturday! (No, I won't).
I will miss the Friday night shenanigans, but will get there first thing on Saturday morning. I am staying at the Radisson too (I am imagining pyjama parties and pillow fights and lots of giggling in the corridors!!).
I have no idea which bag I will be carrying or what I will be wearing yet. I haven't even started packing yet, but I do have all week still - calm down everyone!!
I am also keeping a big secret about the retreat and can't wait till Friday when it will all be out in the open *wink, wink*.
One more thing, I am having a massive giveaway on my blog to launch the new 'fabric and wool' department on our website, so if you haven't already entered, head on over for a chance to win a big pile of wool and fabric! Still a few days left, click on the link above, or on 'older posts'.
See you on Saturday everyone!!
