I woke up this morning feeling… normal! After the last three days it was the most fantastic feeling! I jumped out of bed at 8am and texted Kate to tell her I was well enough for our trip to the NEC for the Sewing for Pleasure exhibition!
It was a really lovely exhibition. We met online/distance member Christie at the entrance and browsed til we were ready to drop – which we did, in front of the catwalk for the last fashion show of the day. I bought some fabric for a dress, some patchwork pieces, and the V&A Nineteenth Century Fashion in Detail book I’ve wanted for a few years that has been out of print. And we met storm troopers. No, really – it was surreal…
The storm troopers were part of the Memorabilia exhibition next door – which Kate and I really wished we’d bought tickets for too!
Now I’m rushing off to my friend Clare’s for dinner in celebration of her 30th. Have a lovely Saturday evening one and all!
