And there we have it – seven days of Violet blouses, all over in the blink of an eye. But by golly we gave it a good send-off. I met up with Karen, Tilly, Rachel, Mela, Laura, Tamsin, Alana and another lovely lady named Clare (Claire?) last night at a cocktail bar in Kings Cross. It was two-for-one and we made the most of it. Mela brought chocolate macaroons – can you believe I’d never had a macaroon before? And I discovered we live not far from one another so I’ll be popping round for seconds if she’s not careful.
In my excitement at meeting so many lovely sewing bloggers I entirely forgot to take any pics of myself at the cocktails. But Tilly and Karen have already done some lovely round-up posts where you can see me – wearing the TLS Violet and grey skinny trousers. But here are some lovely pics of the rest of them.
Disclaimer: despite the red lighting and despite we were in bordello territory of Kings Cross, we were not up to anything dodgy… promise.
I managed to down three cocktails in about an hour and a half (well I am Irish) and had to scamper to another pub to see some chums from Wales who are staying with us this n – we’re all off to see Pulp tonight! Ooh I did get a pic – of the top half of me anyway.
Today we mooched around the British Museum which I have NEVER been to in all my 12 years in London. If you live here or plan to visit – do give it a whirl – it’s stunning! Check out the ceiling.
I have loved doing OWOP but I can tell you I was so relieved to slip into a stripey t-shirt instead today! Thanks to Tilly for coming up with the whole thing and I can’t wait to see all the round-up posts. Have a great weekend everyone xxx
