London, England!<< All Articles
In the UK they say “brilliant” instead of wonderful. I’m having a brilliant time here in London. I met with my U.K.publisher and visited their offices in Surrey. Today was the Stitch and Craft Show in Olympia, which was fabulous. I was surprised at the number of people acquainted with me and my books and was delighted to find the auditorium where I spoke to be standing-room only.
At the Craft Show I was surprised to find possum yarn (a blend of wool and possum fur) and immediately purchased several skeins. I was first introduced to possum yarn when I visited New Zealand and have been searching for it ever since. More so than knitting, the hottest thing at the show was needlepoint.
Last night I was treated to the play The Sound of Music. I’ve seen it many times, but this production was truly brilliant. It was so well produced that I had tears in my eyes many times.
Tomorrow I’ll be on the Eurostar (underground train) on my way to Paris for a few days of fun. I’m so looking forward to that!
