BACK ON THE ROAD AGAIN...
Hello, I'm back after a week off - life just got too manic and I had nothing to share craft-wise, but I was sorry to miss the significant number of 555!
Part of last week's busyness was reinstating the JanCave:
It's so good to have my space back, I've really missed not being able to just pop in for five minutes here and there. There's a pile of cut out glasses cases and some cardboard templates for a WI bag making initiative that's happening in a couple of weeks time.
Outers with fleece fused on, paired with a contrasting liner, all ready for sewing up. The lovely Laura from the Harbour Lights cafe texted me to say that stocks were low, so I really must crack on.
And the reason for all the upheaval?
My kitchen is all but finished, just the new plaster to be painted and a little bit of tiling in the utility room. We're pleased, it's all come together nicely.
G and I had a spur of the moment trip up to London on Friday where one of our oldest and dearest friends was in hospital, having had a major operation. We shared the train trip up with a group of loud but very funny Welsh gals en route to celebrate a 50th birthday...I don't know if the genteel afternoon tea goers at the Ritz would have been prepared for the on-slaught! Our friend was doing incredibly well, so G and I managed to get a lot of walking in around the back streets of the Big Smoke:
I personally think the Shard is a monstrosity, it looked less offensive at night!
And it amused me to take this pic where it was smaller than everything else.... :-)
We walked for miles, 35000 steps in three days!
I'd never walked over the Millennium Bridge before! And as much as the famous sights were fun, it's the back alleys and the underside of the capital that we enjoy exploring. You come across little gems like this:
I don't know who those Maidens were but they must have dumped a lot to have a warning sign!! *grin*
Hope you've had a good couple of weeks, I'll look forward to catching up with you today xxx
