I'm again working through my stash of things to post about, so this is from the end of August!
I headed out for a day trip to London with my friend Hannah - we live a 45 minute train journey away but never really take advantage of it!
It was a mildly touristy day out. We started off in Kensington Gardens, which were very picturesque. We did go on a hunt for the Peter Pan statue but somehow managed to miss it! We headed past the Albert memorial, which was absolutely HUGE! My picture was taken from across a couple of roads away. Very impressive.
We then popped into Harrods - I had never been! It is such an amazingly beautiful building in places - really bizarre that it is a shop! The food hall was just breath-taking (my pictures don't do it justice!). We couldn't resist having some tea there, and buying some petite gateaus. It's mad how intricate they are! I brought Darren one back - I think they survived fairly well after a full day of being lugged around!
We had lunch in Greenwich before investigating the lovely market there. We then headed back to Covent Gardens, where we had a mooch and a nice bit of cake!
It was a really lovely day, and nice to have a bit of an explore!
In terms of crafting, I also did some work on my needleminder exchange organised by the lovely Ingrid at Mii Stitch. I think my move may have meant that the parcel headed for me got a bit waylaid, so I thought I'd post what I made. As I am from Wales and very proud of my heritage, I sent the lovely Karyn a dragon cross-stitch. And as I love Star Wars, I sent her a BB8 needle-minder.
Hope over to Karyn's blog here. It was really fun to take part, and nice to have a quick stitch project!
I'm now going to curl up and catch up on all your lovely blogs!
