It's production day!

Today it's production day at the factory.

As I write, my new Meadow Grass design will be winding it's way around this printing machine with all it's pretty colours being siphoned out of big buckets and troughs.

I'm not there to see it in person this time but I remember the thrill of it well :)

Look at these lovely faces. Meet Matey, Rossi and Iliya from Bulgaria. 

Rossichka is a blogger who has been leaving lovely and encouraging comments on my blog for years now. I remember when I was nervous about visiting Japan years ago - Rossi was there helping me find my brave girl boots! She always finds the time to say something thoughtful and I love that. 

Matey is studying graphic design in Huddersfield so they came over to visit him. How funny that it is so close to Hebden Bridge, a funny little Northern town that she has been reading about on my blog!

It is wonderful to make the connection in real life and to meet her sweet family. It made my day.

Blogging is so great. I have made some good friends, right here sitting in my living room with Ollie cat on my knee. 

The British Craft Trade Fair 2015

A year can't pass without a post about the British Craft Trade Fair. 

Ffion aptly said that the BCTF punctuates my Hannah Nunn career

and that every time I have come a bit further.

She said 'imagine all the old HN's for the past 12 years sharing an aisle'. A funny thought. 

I can't remember what took me to that show twelve years ago but I landed in absolutely the right place. Some of the galleries that ordered way back then still stock my lamps now all these years later. And each year my network of makers and galleries grows stronger and lovelier. I always have a lovely time. And so many hugs :) 

This year smiley Suzi Garlick came to help me which was lovely.

 And we got on famously with our nextdoor stand neighbours, Simon and  Louise of Pixalum.

And my Mum and Dad came to visit too. Thanks for the photos Dad!

We stayed in a gorgeous Airbnb apartment this year with Claire Northern Light (us light makers stick together) and one evening we treated ourselves to the Harrogate Turkish Baths.

It's so beautiful and we lounged around steaming and saunaing.

The floor was so lovely that I had to get my phone out of the lockers just to take a few snaps!

It was the perfect thing to do after a long day at a show. Why haven't we been doing THAT for the last twelve years?

So another good show. I have ten new stockists up and down the country and I'm looking forward to sending them their orders in the coming weeks.
