I have to say, my overriding impression was that it will be very expensive. Of course, I already knew this.... :-( We might have to forego holidays for the next three years, if she goes.
The best things about the trip were:
- historic Exeter. I loved the look of the cathedral, and the roman walls. Dd was more interested in the shopping.
- having dinner with friends who I hadn't seen for 20 years
- delicious breakfast in the Jury's Inn
- train travel involving four hours each way of unremitted knitting time. Although unfortunately, I was too tired to do any on the way home.
I also found time to finish off my quilt on Friday afternoon:
My nephew has been born this week, so it's very timely. I think this quilt will work well for a little boy, and I'm pleased to report this is a fabric stashdown success, as all the materials I used in it were on hand. In the end, I used red gingham for the binding, cut on the bias.
I enjoyed sewing something so much, I think I'll do some more.
