So, aside from all the superstars of craft that I met at the Handmade Haven this weekend, I also saw some real life celebrities over the weekend, in Edinburgh.
First up, that historian off the telly, doing a piece to camera on Hanover Street.

Fact fans should note that I once did some modelling for a well-known line of toiletries in the building with the pillars, in the background.

Then we saw the lovely Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, swoon.

Halfway through his cookery demonstration, some lucky people got to taste his strawberries. Almost getting carried away with jealousy, imagine my surprise when I noticed my chief bridesmaid in the crowd.

Also on hand was this guy, who I think does the wine on Saturday Kitchen and is just about the most irritating/watchable person on TV. I wish they'd had the guy who does the voices on Come Dine with Me, just wandering around with a loudhailer, commenting on people. Are you reading this, Channel 4?

Whatever you've been up to this weekend, I hope you've had a good one, and that the sun was just as shiny in your part of the world.
