Well now that I know that you are looking forward to more of the London Trip…here goes! My time between posts was interrupted by attending the TNNA Summer Trade Show in Washington D.C. So I am back, only to be interrupted in the days coming up by cats, a heat wave and Brenda Hart teaching this weekend in the shop!
I have never seen wisteria growing before! This hung down in front of the Carlton Mitre Hotel. Just beautiful! Now if you just have to do this London thing next time, follow this link! ”Jeremy & Elizabeth’s Wild West Tour of the United Kingdom” I would be going again next year, but work is getting in the way!
On Day 3 we were boarding our coach and heading to the Victoria and Albert Museum and then shopping at Harrods. I don’t think that it could get much better than that!
The gorgeuos entrance. Wow I was really here!
The red telephone booth, which of course I needed a picture!
The most amazing Chihuly glass piece when you first walked into the V & A Museum.
Well we were there to see tapestries! Most magnificient pieces and just how did they create these? Just amazing. The walls were covered on both sides and we just started looking at them. There would be many more to come. We were told that Belgium was the center for the finest tapestries.
Onto Harrods, but first Elizabeth and a few of us had something else on our minds!
A needlepoint shop…what else?
Do these threads look familiar? Even though most canavses they kit with Appleton Wool or Soie d’Alger silk.
Now it was time to go to Harrods for a shopping experience like none other. So special that it will need a day to itself! Too many pictures. I need to go back just to go to spend the day at Harrods.
Sylvester can’t figure out this strange looking cat!
