ON A DARK DESERT HIGHWAY, COOL WIND IN MY HAIR
WARM SMELL OF COLITAS RISING UP THROUGH THE AIR...
Goodness, it's been another busy seven days, two lengthy road trips, one for a funeral, the other for a party and lots of other goings-on too.
I was in the mood to do some sewing so made another few bags for Margaret Glitter & Glue's charity. There's a pile of finished ones by the machine and some more fabric waiting to be cut out on the left.
The pale side is the 'right' side but I like the reverse of the fabric just as much, so these bags aren't going to be lined - the fabric is tough enough to make a bag on its own!
G and I went up to the Midlands to attend my brother and SiL's joint 125th birthday barn dance - we left the house early in order to meet up with some reprobates beforehand:
Shaz and Doug Silverwolf!! We haven't seen each other for ages so it was really lovely to just sit and have a catch up - I don't think we drew breath, lol!! Shaz was looking great after all her recent health upheaval and Doug never changes - we didn't have enough time though as G and I had to pick our son and fiancee up from the station. See you in Sept Shaz, if not before!!
The hotel that we stayed at was a converted convent and was quite idiosyncratic - but fun too. They were into calligraphy in a big way:
This made us smile!
And this looked like it was from some old poem - but G knew straight away it was the lyrics from Hotel California by the Eagles! Hence today's title :-D
There were lots of interesting nooks and crannies all over the hotel - even the stairs offered different viewpoints:
It's a bit like a picture by Escher! I have no idea which way is up......
The barn dance was awesome - the Willow was well and Truly stripped! The band were fantastic with a really great caller, so after the first dance when everyone made fools of themselves, we soon got sorted and didn't do too badly for the rest of the night. I took a photo of the band's name as it was appropriate:
I didn't see any wool or needles but they might have been stashed away!!
I am out today so if any of you are kind enough to comment, my replies are going to be very late in return.
Have a great week! xxxxxx
