I had an absolute blast up in Manchester at the GNCCF though. It was great to be part of the Hothouse Alumni area and have a jolly good catch up with my pals, especially as it had been six months since I had seen most of them. I also got to do some lovely swaps as well, so I'm now the proud owner of one of Zoe Lloyd's fabulous plates and a beautiful bangle from Jane Dzisiewski.
The Hothouse alumni area included (from top left to right):
Eleanor Bolton, Emma Bradbury, Zoe Lloyd, Claire Baker, Aimee Betts, Ros Millar, Hannah Felicity Dunne, Amy Bear, myself, Jane Dzisiewski, Carly Petitt-Taylor, Anna Collette Hunt and Rose Sharp Jones.

I also have to give my thanks to my big brother Richard who came up with me to set up and take down, as well as take lots of lovely pictures. All in all GNCCF was a really great show and I hope I will be back up there again at it next year . . .
