The Graduate Showcase was brilliant as usual, I have some pictures on my phone.
My children gave me the phone for a recent birthday and as usual I'm struggling with how to download the pictures. Nothing for it I suppose, I'll have to read the instructions.
We had a good look at the work of Ruth Issett, her colours glowed. The display was my choice for the best in the show.She is one clever lady and she's such a nice person too!
Maggie Grey was there and Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, wonderful to look at their work, especially the sketchbooks. . .
Mid day , we headed of for our posh pre-booked lunch at the Tetley Tea Rooms. It was a disaster, terrible organisation, angry customers, kitchen staff walked out, we sat around for 45 minutes and no-one even took an order.In the end most people, us included, asked for their money back and joined the queue for a cardboard sandwich. Some you win . . .
You meet such interesting people at these shows , like the lady we chatted to whilst having a cuppa later in the afternoon. She had been on a workshop about Rag rug making and she had us giggling away.
As we were heading , tired and weary to the door a minor miracle happened. . . we bumped into two friends from the Cotswold Embroiderers Guild and they gave us a lift home! Thank you so much Ros and Ann.
I really enjoy a day in London, I always get very excited about it, but then as a country girl I'm always so pleased to be home.
