I should have written this post last week but life,as per usual,
overtook me and before I knew where I was I had to
post my Scavenger Hunt photos.
So here is my catch up on my days out from last week.
This lovely lady is Lynne from Textile Treasury,
a blog I have been following for a while and
who is doing the Norfolk Open Studios this year.
I think quite a few places do this where local artists
open their studies or houses for 2 weeks every year
for people to come and view
their work. I love going around mainly either textile
artists or potters studies.
My friend Chris and I thought we would have
an afternoon out and pop along to say hello to Lynne..
She was every bit as nice as I thought she would be
and the 3 of us had a good old natter about life in general
before Chris and I "Ooohed and Aaahed' over Lynnes work.
It was a dreary day so the photos aren't as good as
they could be but there are some more on Lynnes blog.
I love the real mix of fabrics on these quilts which remind me
of a Kaffe Fassett quilt book I have and who I know
Lynne is a fan off.
These I think are really fun.
It's great to meet fellow bloggers who you feel you already know
and who turn out to be someone you want to meet up with again.
We must have that coffee Lynne.
Saturday I returned to the part of the world where I spent
Mr T and I went to see the Rugby Union premiership final
at Twickenham Rugby ground.
We were a couple of hours earlier than we needed to be
so we walked through some of the places I remember as a child.
The park I used to go to has planted a huge swathe of
wild flowers which looks fabulous and was a totally
We had an ice cream walking along the Thames tow path
looking at the boats and watching the crowds.
it was such a lovely morning I'm not surprised so many
people came out for a walk or cycle although alot
of them were rugby fans like us killing time.
I had forgotten how nice the Thames is this far up.
This is Richmond Lock which I had to walk across as a child to
get to the swimming pool. Not sure parents would let
their children go out on their own now like they used in the 60's and 70's.
I must have been quite young as we moved to Devon
when I was 11.
Having had a lovely walk down memory lane it was
time for the main event and watch the rugby.
World Cup next year so here's hoping we can get tickets for that.
Thank you for all your lovely comments, I love receiving them
even if I don't always reply to them.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
See you soon.
