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!
