My Life In Stitches
Firstly a few pictures from my London trip last week and a brief account.
We visited Spitalfields market on the Thursday, traveling on the top deck of a red London bus.
It's a great way to see the sights and I had a perfect view of the city of London.
Spitalfield market is now quite a trendy place with independent shops,bars and cafes surrounding the covered market.
Thursday is the antique market and my sister and I took our time looking through the vintage clothing and textiles.
Our afternoon was spent in Covent Garden, we had tried to visit the Van Gogh exhibition but sadly the queues were enormous, we would have been waiting for hours to get in!
We then decided to walk along The Embankment, by the Thames, to The Tate Modern from where I took this picture of St Pauls Cathedral.
It was a lovely break and I'm looking forward to returning again soon!
This week I had a copy of http://www.crossstitchermagazine.co.uk/ sent to me as I am featured in their "Life In Stitches" article, as you can imagine my Mum had to go out and buy several copies!!
My life indeed has been dominated by my obsession in drawing with threads, it has not abated yet, in fact it grows stronger.
It is now managing my time to stitch that I find difficult, which I'm sure is the case for many textile artists.
Here are a few items I have been stitching last week.
Bye for now.
