Didn't we have a lovely day!
I had such a lovely day last Saturday, meeting some fellow SCF girls, and fellow bloggers. We met in London, starting off with a coffee and took it from there. It was fun. The purchase bags above at the end of the day speak for themselves. We went everywhere!
At All the Fun of the Fair, a wonderful shop I first blogged about here, I was thrilled to find a crochet pot to add to mine, along with some braid and special tags to add to my home made goodies.
Isn't it fab!
We visited a wonderful ribbon and haberdashery shop off Oxford Street, where I know Gok regularly pops into, and where I restored my bias stash...
I fell in love with this display in Liberty's window:
Anyone know where I can find fabric like that for the cushions, with motorway scenes?
We contemplated here for lunch...
The menu looked tasty...
and the girls all rushed for it...
But we changed our minds! Probably wouldn't have been allowed in in jeans, I guess! We had lunch in the open air at the place you can see here (that's not us - we didn't want a public group pic):
It was very good - just below All the Fun of the Fair. Spot that knitted chain... good, isn't it!
In the Emma Bridgewater shop, I treated my children to three beakers - they've been well used already...
At VW Rouleux, we all got a postcard, thanks to Mitmot:
I took a few pics in CK's Marylebone store, but thought I'd overdone the photos already, so here's one I've not seen on anyone's blog before:
So a good day. I bought a few more bits and pieces, but not much.
