Ready to Go!
Panic over. Through one of DH's contacts, we managed to get some Public Liability Insurance at the very last moment. Phew! Then, in the documentation that I only received today, I discovered that the table that we were going to take in wouldn't be acceptable as it might be a fire risk! Luckily, the Operations Manager at the Chequers Centre was very kind to me and, whereas I was told previously that there weren't any trestles left, he has now put one by for me as well as some chairs and, what's more, has promised to set it all up before we arrive. How nice was that!
So, apart from stressing about all the last minute things, I put all the stuff I could possibly think of taking onto my kitchen table. It's now been drastically reduced as the table I'm being provided with is only 2 feet wide.

See my gigantic needles on the right of the photo. I'm now up to speed with the backwards knitting so I don't have to turn my work. I've decided I'm going to knit the i-cord into a scarf and, as it's pink, it'll do towards the November charity craft fair which will benefit Breast Cancer charity as well as Cancer Research. I now also know how to finger knit.
I do seem to have developed a sore right eye today. This happens from time to time and I think is to do with stress. I call it my red eye syndrome. So, if the press do attend and take any photos with me in them, I shall just pretend the camera caused the red eye, so there! LOL
