It's not long now! Less than 24 hours and we'll be there.
I've been looking forward to this trip, as I couldn't go last year. 
So Suzzette and I are off on our girlie day out.
We're even letting the train take the strain, so no driving either. 
It's going to be an early start at 6am but it's worth it.
A whole day dedicated to yarn :)
 They've got their very own buses. We'll be using one of these from the station to the show. 
The bunting is up and looking really good.
I'm looking forward to the Yarn Walk on the way back to the station. I love yarn bombing it really makes me smile.

I also joined Betty's From My Home to Yours swap.
These are the goodies I sent to my partner at Peonies and Pennies
A Denby Pottery mug from just down the road (lots of Denby at my house as I worked there many moons ago. )
Thorntons Chocolates, A Bakewell Pudding Tea towel, regional Postcards and a cross stitched Lavender heart hanger made with Cath Kidston fabrics and dried Lavender from my garden.
I hope she likes them.
