I have been doing some spring cleaning today and have finally sat down to visit blog land. I saw Sue's blog today and was surprised to see that she is heading to Cornwall at the moment. It only seems like yesterday that I was there but I have been back home for almost 3 months now and still haven't shown any photos. Not having an iPhone to take pics and post on the internet slowed me down. I do it the old fashioned way, just taking photos on an actual camera , loading them onto the computer and attaching them from there. However, all my overseas photos were taken on a new camera with a new computer program that is different to the camera I use for my blog. So, all I can show you at the moment is more of my thimble collection. Here are the ones from London.
From L to R... King Henry V111, The Tudor Rose, Queen Victoria and Henry V111's crown.
The Crown Jewels ( made in England! Not China.), Tower of London, and Hampton Court Palace.
Westminster Abbey and Kensington Palace.
We found Kensington Palace accidently while taking a casual stroll in Hyde Park. We had no idea it was situated right there! So, having a London Pass, we got in free and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Now, back to craft.
I am delighted to say that I have succeeded in crocheting the little baby blanket and have done the first border. Fingers crossed that I shall complete the other borders without much confusion or stress.
Some secret sewing is coming along nicely.
The final stitchery of Jenny's BOM is completed and I have sewn on the sashings.
I am trying to use fabrics from my stash to finish this . I am contemplating using this fabric for the wider border I am planning to put around it but I am not 100% sure yet. What do you think? It actually has some colours in it that the stitcheries have.
I scored these 6 lovely Civil War repro fat 1/4s for $6.00 at a patchwork meeting. WOOHOOO!
Oh dear! I have so many things on this post. I hope I haven't bored you to tears. I get so excited when I am on a roll. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
