Lazy and busy.

Hi everyone,

I've been so busy enjoying myself that I have become a lazy blogger. I have so many good intentions to blog more often and then fall by the wayside,

I'm back from a fabulous few days in London with a new haircut and some new goodies from the Mac shop to make me feel good.

The Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A was so lovely and then I expl0red the rest of the museum looking at some amazing things that will inspire me as I work.

I must have walked millons of miles round shops and galleries, along the South Bank, around Hyde Park and in lots of markets, (ok, maybe not quite so many miles but my feet ached) now I'm home and recovered but still out and about.

I had a visit to Cowslip to see the Charlotte Yde Exhibition with was amazing but what I loved the most was seeing the Rounneries Quilts made by the Cowslips students.

I'm sure you'll agree this work is great and Jo is so clever at staging it just makes you want to go home and start stitching.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
XOX Angela.

Glad to hear you had a great trip. Those quilts are amazing. I wish I could stitch anything! I've bought some bits and bobs at thrift stores along the way and am going to attempt some sewing when I get back to Kuwait and am settled into normal life. Our trip to the States is winding down. Tomorrow evening is our flight back. Wishing you all the best, Tammy :)

Angela, the quilts are lovely and it sounds like you had a wonderful time in London. I would love to go there some day.
I am amazed that you don't have fireflies in the UK. I guess I just thought everyone had them. :) My heart sank when you said you didn't have them over there...it's just such a wonderful memory of my childhood, that I suppose I think everyone should have that moment in their memory. They are such wonderful little insects! (although they do leave a very distinct odor on your hands! lol)
Maybe some day if you ever visit the US, you'll have the joy of catching fireflies on a warm summers evening. :)
Blessings & Hugs
