Well, not a long one.
Next year Little Sister and I are planning a trip to the UK. To be brutally honest Little Sister is going with me on my trip to the UK🙂 as she says she has no specific wants and I have a looooong list. So I have a large road map, my little notebook and plenty of time to create an itinerary. But I have a shock at how close towns/cities are to each other. Looking at the map I think “oh if Oxford is next that will be a days drive from Winchester” and then checking with Dr Google Maps I find it is around one hour😳. This is a fun way to spend a day when I am stuck indoors with a head cold.
Our trip is not until May 2024 so I have plenty of time to plan the intended five weeks. As a bribe I have promised to send Little Sister to visit her son and grandson in Amsterdam for a week then meet her there and fly home from Schipol. I shall probably explore London in that time if I pluck up the courage to do it alone. Gold Hawk Road Fabrics are on my list along with 84 Charing Cross Road, and Heatherwick’s Rolling Bridge A very eclectic mix.
And my next project is a Wessex Stitchery Japanese Komebukuro for which I have selected colours and tacked out the linen. I’m looking forward to this one.
