Apologies for my lack of blogging recently. I have been crafting, and working, and having some time off, and doing lots of WI-based things.
I am still working on the Images of Japan quilt and the cross stitch flower series, so will have updates on those soon.
For now, here are some pictures of my trip to London town. I went down on Sunday and stayed for a few nights. It was the WI AGM on Wednesday at the Royal Albert Hall, which was the reason for the visit, but I decided to extend my stay a little so I could do some sightseeing. I timed it just right as the weather was glorious!
I saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.
Visited the Queen's Gallery to see the exhibition of Da Vinci's anatomical drawings.
Went to the V&A and saw the fashion exhibitions, Japan gallery and Golden Spider Silk textiles.
Nipped through Leicester Square for pizza and had a quick look in the National Portrait Gallery.
Went to the AGM at the Royal Albert Hall.
Ate ice cream with Hayley at Hampton Court Palace.
Phew! And then back home for some rest! It's raining up north now, quelle surprise.
