I can hardly believe it's been a month since my last post!!! Time is flying...
From November 10th to November 15th, I was in London for a class with CA Wells but not only...
But let's start with the class as it is what might interest you most. This year I attended two half-day classes on Sunday. The projects were small but very challenging, especially the scissors rest. Indeed, this project taught me things I didn't know. The other projects used techniques I was already familiar with.
But I'm sure you'd like to see the pictures. There are a scissors rest, a name tag, a tri-block cushion and a pin cushion. Of course none were finished in class!!!
CA Wells's creations are very delicate and I have never been disappointed with one of her projects.
London is a city I love because of the atmosphere, the liveliness, the musicals, the architecture mixing modernity and traditions. It is for me a place full of inspiration... Its pubs, black cabs, red phone booths, double-deckers, shops... I like everything. Not to mention the museums which are free!!
Every time I'm London, I go to Emma Bridgewater's. I love EB's mugs!
This year, I discovered a part of London I didn't know well : Old Spitafield Market, Columbia Road among other things.
Want a closer look ?
A quilt shop on Columbia Road :
The wonderful windows of Fortnum and Mason with dimensional reproductions of paintings!
I also went by the Harry Potter World Premiere but didn't wait for the actors to arrive and visited the National Portrait Gallery instead.
I think I was right not to wait for film stars as the following day I had a very famous American actor and and a famous American singer a table away from me at a restaurant. When I told my two daughters about it, they were both "mad"!!!! "And you didn't even ask for an autograph" they told me! And I answered : "They didn't asked for mine either!!!" LOL.
Talking about food, it was great also. Here's a sample of the food I had. Yummy ;-)
Bye, bye England, I'll be back soon...
It's been a long time t but I did my best to be back with a long post. Hope you have liked sharing a part of my trip to London.
Until later with new quilt blocks and stitching projects,
