Almost March already

I managed to finish work in London a little early on Monday and went along to the V&A. I wanted to have a look at their Japanese things - as you can see from the photo they have a really good collection.



And just look at this in the main foyer - wow. It's huge. And amazing to see.
On Tuesday evening I dragged a colleague along to Liberty's. I just love that shop. I treated myself to a couple of bars of posh soap - they smell great. We treated ourselves to a cup of tea in the cafe - tea leaves and a mini tea strainer. It was lovely. The only problem I had was I fell up the stairs at Oxford Circus - I've now got a great collection of bruises of varying colours.
My class at the Bramble Patch went really well and it was great to see what everyone had been up to. They have a new range on fabric in called 'In the beginning'. It's really different to any others I've seen - very contemporary. Please do take a moment to have a look at the collections Floragraphix 1 and Cho Cho no Sanpomichi.
I bought a bag pattern from the shop that uses one of these fabrics. I promise I'll post a photo of it when it's made.
I finished and bound my piece for the Easter exhibition. It managed to shrink by 2 inches so it's only 50 inches long and not 52 as it should be. I've also sent my entry form for Malvern for the same piece - so some of you will see it in the flesh.
Well I plan to have an easy weekend and do lots of sewing - hopefully my BQL March bag too.
Have a good weekend.

I visited the V & A during half term (with the children) and thought the blown glass sculpture fascinating. It's a fabulous museum full of interesting stuff - If only my stuff could be as good!

Sounds like you've had a very inspirational time...sorry to here about your fall and bruising...not quite the kind of souvenirs you want. TTFN
