I MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY, I MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY,
EVER SINCE YOU WENT AWAY, EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY...
I've made many things for many people, but this has to be the best Thank You pic I've ever had....
I think Chloe liked her little waistcoat - bless her! That's her best cheesy grin :-)
I don't have a pic of my workdesk...nothing has changed there - but I get my machine back from servicing today. Wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I'll have lots to show you next week cos I've got two weeks' worth of stitching to catch up on......
But I have been crocheting away merrily so I present to you:
WOYWW - The Hampton Court Palace edition *drum roll*
AKA a cafe table with my mate, Lynne! We'd met up there as Hampton Court is halfway between where we live. We're creating items that are going to be used for yarnbombing later in the year. That bright bubblegum pink is not my usual choice of colour but oh boy, have I enjoyed the gloriously bonkers tone - it really lifts the spirits!
That's it for crafting so feel free to escape now......otherwise you'll be forced to share some of the pics from the day!
I hadn't been to Hampton Court since I was 8, so not THAT long ago...cough..
It was a fab day, we all really enjoyed ourselves.
I was amazed by how many trees were covered in mistletoe!
Loads of it, everywhere!
This is the William and Mary extension to the Tudor palace - the back entrance!! Wonder how long it takes to trim those bushes then ;-)
Very pointy topiary....looks like witches hats! D'ya see that very white statue in the background?
All wrapped up snuggy warm against the frosts and winter weather...awwwww.
I loved the fantastic patterns in these brick chimneys...not bad for nearly 500 years old, eh?
This one's for you, Sandy L-J!
The Tudor kitchens were brilliant, filled with guys re-enacting what went on. These chickens were roasting beautifully on the spit...
This chap (a dead ringer for Terry Pratchett btw!) was applying gold leaf to the sugar paste crown, which would be used as a table decoration. He stuck it on with egg white.
Another bloke was making quills and helping people write with it in a handmade paper book...
...of course I had to have a go! And I managed it without sticking out my tongue!!
As we were leaving, Mr LLJ pointed out my transport for the home journey....
Hmmmm what CAN he be implying?? I'll get him back, don't you worry :-)
Hope I haven't bored you rigid with my Grand Day Out! There'll be proper crafting next week, promise!
