You might well ask. Nothing as I've been to London with my hubby Philip.  Not to see the Queen but we did see Camden Lock Markets, its really buzzing and has a great atmosphere.  If you are down there don't miss it.
Look at the vibrant colours in this shop and what a lovely man the owner was, I really enjoyed chatting to him. 
We had a day at Spitalfields and had lunch in VERDE AND CO. The shop front and interior stood out from all the usual Starbucks, Pret A Manger and Pizza Huts. The homemade soup and bread were delightful so were the people who worked there.  You couldnt stop looking round at the interior it was fascinating with a real olde worlde charm.
Sunday afternoon saw us in Covent Garden then onto the 5pm showing of the Jersey Boys at the Prince Edward Theatre..... Fantastic !!!

I did do a little bit of work on my Alchemy course but only had limited resources with me so I just did a bit of sampling. This week we start the stitch sampling properly... say no more, lets just see what next week reveals.

Now don't forget to go and have a look at some more desks, here's a link


  1. Great blog and photos, I enjoyed reading about your time in London and the market x

  9. Love that fabric, would have spent a mint if I'd been in that shop. Lovely photos of the market, haven't been to Camden Lock for years, but I remember it as very bohemian. My brother went to see the Jersey Boys, have a nice little tale about that. If I see you at the craft show tomorrow I will tell it to you.
