Nice suprises

My daughter went to London at the weekend and telephoned me to say that she had bought me a really cool present - so I was quite excited to see what it was - and to see her of course.
It turned out to be a very sweet pincushion from Cath Kidston - unfortunately I am not allowed to keep the bag!

I also sent for a Japanese Sewing Book from Pomadour24 and it arrived in the post. Daughter wants me to help her make some of the patterns up with some Liberty fabric:

On a research trip to London a couple of weeks ago I visited the Liberty store and actually resisted spending money in there but couldn't help but fall in love with their gorgeous display of flowers outside - I could have bought them all!

I started 'drawing' with my camera the blue lights that were outside our hotel to produce some interesting images:

This was a great view of London (unfortunately it's a cloudy day!), taken from inside the National Gallery looking out onto Trafalgar Square and down towards the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben:
