Best Week Ever
I have just had such a fun week, not only making the above bunting for an art project in West Bromich but all this other stuff too.
It started Monday night at Hyde Park, I am not & have never been a big festival goer, so when Russ and I discovered the Serpentine Sessions we were sold. Picnic benches, deck chairs, waitress service, posh loos & amazing weather (ok they can't guarantee that bit)
Tuesday, a sneaky afternoon beer & award winning pork pie, at a pub near us that we have been meaning to go to for ages.
Wednesday, a perfect day out in London with my mum, visiting both the Grace Kelly & the Quilts exhibitions at the V&A followed by tea and scones at Fortnum & Masons (you are right mum my blog is just full of pictures of what I eat!)
Thursday, a meeting about a possible licensing deal with Britian's leading Tin & Melamine manufactuter, they hold the licensees for Flower Fairies and Peter Rabbit...eek!
Friday night drinks on the terrace at the very swanky Aqua Bar Regents Street followed by dinner at The Salt Yard (these aren't my pics, it was much busier as you can imagin a sunny Fri night in London!)
Saturday was my birthday, lots of lovely presies, including cupcakes through the post from Russ's sister and one of my favourite illustartions ever on a card from my mum and dad.
My lovely Swiss auntie always sends me a home made card.
& my mum & dad gave me a mini starter kit so I can make my own quilt.
The afternoon was spent sipping tea & munching on sandwiches, scones & cakes at Claridges.
Followed by the BEST film I have seen in ages 'Heartbreaker' the Telegraph says 'Heartbreaker recalls a time in film history when rom-coms were amusing and glamorous as well as romantic.' I was hooked from the moment it started, I think being a big Dirty Dancing fan helped! you can see a trailor here
& finally Sunday was spent on the Heath with lovely friends eating & drinking whilst the boys played football.
Boooooooo does that mean I have to actually do some work today ?!
