We saw lots of makes from mainly season 2 and 4 (including the amazing beaded dress made by Jade!); I took some pictures of my favourites. It's so bizarre seeing things from the TV in 'real-life'.

We didn't sign up for the talks, or any of the workshops (we didn't fancy any of them), so only spent about 3 hours there. I think it was more geared to people using the workshops rather than just stalls and showing makes by other people, but it was a lovely way to spend a few hours.
I did buy some material - for yet another baby quilt! But also some lovely crafty coasters and a fun card that I am going to frame for myself. Until I found the material (called Doodle Days), there was a brief risk that I was going to leave the show with no material! Between myself and big sis, we have bought a couple of dress patterns that I'm looking forward to trying to make...eventually!
For the rest of the afternoon, we popped into the Science Museum. It has been updated since I was last there, and the displays looked vibrant and were all working (last time I went, a few years ago, the whole place was looking a bit tired). We went on a search for Tim Peake's command module but it turns out it had been lent to Bradford and we had missed it by a couple of days - bother! We did find the Apollo 10 command module however, which was fascinating to see.
A fantastic day out overall!
