Last weekend Michael and I went for a really nice break away. We stayed overnight at a hotel near  London Excel and on Saturday evening we took the Emirates cable car across to the O2 arena.

Considering how close we live to London, this was our first visit to the O2 and we were there because we were seeing The Who! in concert. Neither of us have ever actually been Who fans in the past but I felt it was a band that we needed to see. They certainly didn't disappoint, being on stage for just over 2 hours I was just amazed how brilliant they were. If I've got half of their energy when I get to their age, I'll be ecstatic. We had a great time!

Wednesday saw me back in London again, this time with Miriam and Diane to visit the exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum - Kaffe Fassett A Life in Colour.

Lots of interesting designs and use of colour could be seen there and it did give me inspiration to work with hats and buttons.  A future project perhaps!

With no knitting on the go at the moment I am just enjoying dabbling with my crochet. I have got a pattern and drops apaca yarn ready to make a baby jacket but when I checked the pattern the jacket and buttonhole border is knitted as one and as the sex of the baby is unknown so I've got to wait a while before I start. Anyway sometimes it is nice to do something different and it will give me a chance to work out what  else I want to make.

Apart from that July is a busy baking time, both granddaughters and my son celebrate their birthdays and all three like me to make their cakes.
So I am researching ideas for a policeman's helmet, minnie mouse and moshi monsters. Any help with these ideas would be much appreciated! 


  1. A great day out, we need to organise ourselves and do it more often. Good luck with the cakes, looking forward to the pictures.

  2. Sounds like you've been having a great time lately! I can't help re. the cakes but do show us when you're done won't you :)
