Day at the V&A

What a wonderful way to spend a birthday! Our quilt group had organised an
outing to the V&A museaum in London on Sunday and it was my birthday. How
amazing was that? I couldn't think of a better way of spending the day than
with friends and we all had a great time. We were booked into the exhibition
at 11.45 and it took nearly 2 hours to look round.

By lunchtime it was hot and sunny and we sat outside in the park area
watching the children running around in the shallow pool getting incredibly
wet. Some had come prepared wearing their wellies....HOPELESS!!Within
seconds they were full of water and being used as buckets. It was difficult
to think this was all within the museum walls in the centre of London.
Later, we visited the textile department, having taken in the glass,
jewellery and stained glass en route and I spent a long time recording
design ideas from ancient tapestries, an old silk apron and a fire screen. I
think maybe it is time to move on from cup cakes

I am quite excited to think that I shall not be at work for a couple of
weeks now...I am at a study day tomorrow focussing on muculoskeletal
injuries so am frantically learning about distal, and proximal phalages, and
lateral and medial bits and pieces!

After the bank holiday, I have taken a day off so I can get some creative
work done before we go off to Blencathra for a photographic weekend.I am
planning to be very busy.....

I'm not able to add any info below the pictures because of the way I uploaded them but they are to give me ideas for free machine embroidery. I have not been ablt to upload additions to text below each picture. Must work on how to do it!
