A Date with CK!!!

Look who I met at Selfridges today

Yes the lovely Cath Kidston who was signing copies of MAKE!

She was a lovely woman and asked if I sewed. I told her I was hoping to learn and she confessed to me it's wasn't her strongest point! She also told us the new catalogue is coming out next week so look out for it!

Here's my signed copy and the other bits and pieces I picked up

If you spent over £40 you received a free bag which will be perfect to store in my work bag

When I left Selfridges I headed to the V&A Museum of Childhood

I haven't been there since I was a child (I'm sure I remember it being much bigger!!) but it was nice to have a quick look around and of course I found some bits and pieces to bring home

I love these Etiquette Books and one can never have enough postcards!

If you're local to London and have little ones it's worth a visit as it's free entry and there's a lovely park next to the museum where you could eat a packed lunch

Hope you all have a great weekend!
