Then, we crossed the road to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It has been recently refurbished. We've been 6 years ago as well. It is really worth a visit.

I've got a lot of tidy up on the wrong side and all the embroideries... Several weeks of work still. But it will be worth it at the end and I am sure Maeva will look beautiful in it.

I liked these very colorfull african paintings (sorry, I forgot the name of the artist).
Then I went back to Picadilly circus and later Covent garden (with a stop at the chinese quarter to eat some dim sun). I went to All the fun of the fair and as the sale were on I got some really nice and cheap wool (2 balls of baroque yarn, £1 each, and 2 balls of hand dyed araucania yarn, £2 each !). I don't know what I am going to knit with them, so far they just look nice in my stash.

Plans are to knit a sleeveless jacket (for myself) with the cream yarn, a hat with the brown and purple cashmerino for my friend in Vietnam (they are coming back to Belgium this autumn so they will need warm clothing), ask my great aunt to knit me another pair of socks with the lana grossa wool, and whatever with the colinette (it was half price and too nice to let somebody else get it !!!). I also gt 2 pairs of rosewood knitting needles.

I am still knitting Olivia's blanket. The square in the middle is missing and then, I will have to sew it. Also I am knitting something for Allyson's baby.
Tomorrow is our monthly kniting group in Newburgh.

She has just finished this little bolero,
and she have to saw this jacket and crochet the twenty something flowers for the hat. Bergère de france has great patterns for babies and toddlers.
Holidays are almost finished....We've been really lucky with the weather. I will miss the sunshine, the cold, the snow on the mountains, the food..... Anyway, we are flying back on Friday. We should be home on Saturday as we are stopping in Edinburgh for a night to see friends.
