I had a really bad time last week (London Transport related as usual and will blog about this later) so this weekend I decided to really treat myself.
On Saturday I went to the Stitch and Craft Show at London Olympia. There were more people than last year, I guess lots of daughters (and/or sons) decided to treat their mothers this weekend. Before I went I had a chat with Gracie who told me to not to buy anymore yarn, which is good advice as I’m running out of space in my small flat. I said I wouldn’t buy yarn but I didn’t say I wouldn’t buy fabric…Heeheeheeee! The first stand that caught my eye was Fabric Galore. Two Hippos is so right, it is such a great shop (in Battersea). The lady at the stall said that what she had on that day is just a fraction of what she has at the shop. I must make a visit there when I get the chance. Anyway, this is what I bought:
When I miraculously find time to do some sewing, I’m hoping to make a skirt with the green Liberty fabric and a bag with the leafy fabric. Two more weeks to my Easter Holiday, when I hopefully get more sleep and time to spend with my Rascal…and do some sewing or knitting.
I also had a good day today…the sun was shining, the birds were singing and Rascal and I skipping by the docks (yes….this is not a joke…we really were doing that….that’s what people do around here when the sun is shining ….Gracie knows all about that).
I received a lovely daffodil (in a mini Evian bottle) and a card from my daughter. We decided to have strawberry muffins for breakfast and tea (from a teabag given to me as a Mothers’ Day present.
We spent the rest of the day around the Docklands and then to the Childhood Museum.
I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day!
