I’ve got to tell you about this book shop, I know there are a few of you that would love it. I found it on my London Links expedition (four peoples homework done by one!) But boy am I glad I found this, this is the Covent Garden branch.
I drooled and I drooled
and then I drooled some more.
I could have bought shelves worth of books from this shop, it really is worth a trip. I only managed to buy three before hubby was dragging me out of the shop complaining of sore feet and in need of supper and a drink. (It was the last place of a very, very long list in two days)
We had supper at our favourite chinese with lots of wine and I really couldn’t remember taking this photo until I’d downloaded the photos on my camera. I think I must have taken it because of the iconic nature of it.
I’ve been learning new hand stitches.
And drooling over books from Savile Row.
They are just so beautiful
Eric has come to stay – much to the disgust of our boys.
I’ve been doing primary research for two projects,
and pattern cutting.
and today I tried my hand at technical drawing copying a pair of hubby’s wool trousers.
The next stage is to put differing thickness of lines on, but I think I’ll photocopy it first, these drawings took over four hours, they are hard work!
And strangely, I can see hubby in them. They look like hubby’s trousers!
Bless those little legs!

One of these days I shall have to come to London just for a trawl around all of the exciting new places you're discovering. It looks like you're having a blast and I'm so happy for you, even though we miss you back up north! X
I love all book stores too! When we lived in Toronto there was a bookstore that we used to spend hours browsing. Nothing like that here though.How wonderful to feel as passionate about something as you do about 'tailoring' or creating! Not sure of the right word here but I'm sure you know what I mean! So happy for you that Eric has come to stay, he's very beautiful!
Is that book shop as big as it looks. Think I might be overwhelmed after the little country ones I use. You are certainly taking to the big city, Eric looks likes he is too. Enjoy.
