Yum yum and the V&A

Hello all. I hope you're all having a good Bank Holiday weekend - the weather is rather good too. I had a great day out yesterday in London at the Quilt exhibition at the V&A. What a fantastic exhibition it was too - always helped by being with great company. If you haven't been yet do try to make the time and do get the audio guide as you'll get so much more from the exhibition. It really was very well displayed and not too crowded. I already knew the cafe would be busy - and I wasn't disappointed. So after the exhibition we decided to go to  the Hummingbird Cafe on theOld Brompton Road. here's the table before:
And what we had....

But I did feel rather sick afterwards. But it was a nice treat. Anyway - have a great weekend.

What I've been up to...

Hello all - yes I'm still here. Wow what wonderful weather we're having at the mo.  Well - I've been busy - as you can tell from the lack of posts. Well - I've been to Malvern - where one of our group won 1st prize in the cot quilt section I entered a quilt - but was very disappointed with how it looked when it was hung - very very creased with a scunched up patch too. I think i was aprtly to blame as I didn't hang it before I sent it. So, I've washed it again, and this time its stored on a roll with bubble wrap layered. I hope this will improve it's next showing. The weather has also brought everything out in the garden - here's one of my jumbo poppies. I just love them. And finally - just to prove I am working my way though my OU Digital Photography course - even if I'm a little behind schedule - here's one of my edited photos. I'll show you original next time. Have a great weekend.
You may have wondered where I've been - well we've had a week away in Lyme Regis at a very cute cottage - 'Wren Cottage'. It was on the little side (2 up and 2 down) - but what else do you need really. It was very near to the sea front and the centre of Lyme Regis.
I fell in love with this shop Susie Cole. It was beautiful inside - organised by colour theme. It was a great shabby chic shop. I loved it - so many beautiful things.
And Ginger Beer was full of great things for living outside; bug houses, weather stations, plant signs, bags and lots and lots of other lovely things.
There were also some great galleries - Blue Lias was one I really loved. A great variety of items and all a good range of prices so anyone could buy something.
And you can't go to Lyme Regis without going fossil hunting.... DH did have to be rather patient as I'm a but of a wuss on slippy surfaces - but we did get across the beach (even with one very wet foot). So here are some photos of our l…
