I seriously cannot believe we're at Saturday again!
I had a brilliant day at the Victoria and Albert museum (the V&A dahling!) We spent 2 hours in just the Alexander McQueen exhibition. What an artist! The workmate (male) I went with couldn't believe he would be wowed by dresses! But they are works of art, not dresses. I hadn't realised that he had worked in Saville Row, so knew tailoring and also worked at Gieves & Hawkes where he learnt military tailoring. My friend wants to go back to the V&A and see more of the museum. I love it there. After all, it is the world's greatest museum of art and design. Entry to the museum is free - some exhibitions you do have to pay for and is worth booking in advance As a crafter it is well worth a visit http://www.vam.ac.uk
Tonight I am going back into London - Camden to see the three voices of Los Van Van, a huge band from Cuba. I live about 30 minutes from Kings Cross. I should take advantage of going into London more often
Tomorrow afternoon (depending if I am still awake!) we will probably go to Rueda in the Park - Hyde Park or Salsa in Stevenage
Today's oldie is inspired by Erika here
It was my first "play" at making my own gilding wax. An Ali Reeve technique. You literally rub your finger in to furniture wax/polish (this was quite hard to source these days, everything is aerosol sprays!) and then gently dip finger into mica of choice. Pink was the first one I found! I was a bit heavy handed in places but you get the idea
The sun is shining and the wind has dropped. So a perfect day to craft! Hope the weather is being kind to you all and thank you for popping by
