meeting

Oh hello there,
yesterday I was in London to buy fabrics, wool and some paper (and a long wish list made by Anita: sweets, cards, little toys, anything japanese food and possibly a Totoro doll ;)). This is the kind of shopping I do, when I'm not rummaging through antique/vintage market stalls or thrift shops.
I wasn't in London for that though, but to (finally) meet Leonôr:  we talked non stop, it was super nice!
That's Leonôr (in the pic) looking at the fab window of the Cloth House shop in Soho.
I will see her again in a month time, in fact, I'm quite chuffed to tell you that I've been invited to the Musée du Costume et de la Dentelle for a talk at the Night Opening for the "Handmade" exhibition,  which will be held the 8th of December, more details to come. If you are around and interested would be lovely to see you.

Thank you for stopping by my shop, for your comments, for your emails and thanks to Deborah of Kickcan and Conkers for her post
I'm so glad I started blogging, so many wonderful people and things came with it.

we missed each other by a whisker. I was in London meeting up to talk about work and fun stuff with a friend and textile fanatic too.
and yes, the www is a good place to meet wonderful people.

good luck with the talk.
