I thought I would show some photograph’s of my recent visit to Bath in England where Jane Austen lived for five years.
A window display in the Jane Austen Centre.
We had tea at the famous Sally Lunn tea shop, the food was delicious.
The house was built in 1475!
The beautiful Georgian buildings and neat little shops, all I needed now was a
Georgian style dress and I would feel complete!
I found a very pretty bead shop in this square called Bijoux Beads here
, of course I had to buy some!
Inside Bath Cathedral there was a beautiful embroidery and calligraphy art display entitled
The Celebration Of Creation by Sue Symons, the pieces were amazing, Sue is one very talented lady.
I have other photographs that I can show you in another post, if you love embroidery you will love these photo’s!
Sue has had her art work published, you can find more details here.
If you wish to visit Bath here
is a helpful website.
I have just received a beautiful exchange from Shay in the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange group and I must say the photograph cannot possibly do this beautiful piece of work justice.
Shay made a stitching book with tatted lace inside and gorgeous roses on the outside, the stitching and finishing are perfect and I am thrilled to own such a beautiful piece of work.
I shall treasure this always.
Here is the little pillow I made for Joke
in the same round.
I am off on my holiday’s again for a week, I am going to Paris,
I just love it there, I usually visit every year and I always look forward to going.
There are a couple of needlework shops that I am going to visit and hopefully
I will remember to take photo’s to show on my blog when I return.
We are also visiting a few museums including the Museum of Fashion,
it has collections dating back to the 17th Century so there should be plenty of opportunity
to get inspired for my needlework.
I have posted the first, second and third prizes for my blog giveaway,
I will post the other prizes when I return from my holiday.
Thankyou so much for your lovely comments, I always love reading them!
SEE YOU SOON!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
