A holiday.

I had such a lovely weekend, I felt like I was on holiday in my own city! I visited a friend who lives in east London and we had a weekend of fabulous food. We started with traditional pie and mash at G Kelly's on the Roman Road. Then after enjoying the February sun in Victoria park we had afternoon tea at The Empress of India, it was really good and the scones were so fresh and warm, it was such a treat. we may have pushed the boat out and had  champagne too so no wonder I felt like I was on holiday!

On Sunday we took a lovely walk down brick lane to Spitalfields market, I love doing this but as ever my eyes were so on stalks I forgot to take any photos!

Through The Viewfinder

I got this Duaflex camera through today and I'm really exited about having a go at taking photos through it. You use this camera as am extra lens for your digital camera and the results can be amazing

These are my first couple of go's just in my room, I'm exited to get out on a photo mission to take more.

A hat for a friend.


Although I'm spending quite a lot of my free time knitting, I did find time to make my friend a hat for her birthday. 
Before I put the flower on it looked like a big chocolate button! 

 The flower took me an age to embroider because the thread was horrible to use and the felt is so thick to sew through.

 I hope she likes it!
