So, summer is finally here, and that means the holiday is drawing closer. I will be working in July, but before that, I am going to London! The weekend, that around these parts of the world is called Midsummer (around 20th of June), I will be visiting London for the first time in YEARS. I am very excited about this, and will humbly take suggestions on where to go and what to do.
One thing I am eager to see, but that I don´t know what is called or where is situated, is a fabric shop with second hand fabric. Anyone know what I am talking about? Please let me know – I´d love to visit, as the second hand fabric market in Oslo is non-existent.
I already have some things on my must- see list, including the V&A and Goldhawk Road. I am also hoping for a trip to Raystitch. And of course, if anyone wants to meet up – I´d love that! I have quite a flexible schedule, you know, it comes with the holiday territory, so I am up for a chat or some fabric shopping, a coffee or a cocktail. Just let me know! My email adress is delfinelise(at)gmail.com.
Speaking of meet-ups, I just had the opportunity to meet up with Alessa of Farbenfreude, while I was on a work trip to Berlin. She´s such a lovely person! We were so busy chatting about sewing, music and language, do some market strolling and some shawarma- and ice cream eating, that we forgot to take a picture to prove this event took place. So you´ll have to take my word for it. By the way, go visit Berlin – it´s wonderful!
On Monday I had the chance to meet up with another Norwegian seamstress, she contacted med during Me Made May, having noticed familiar scenery in my photos. We chatted for hours – it´s so nice to have someone nearby interested in the same things! Of course, I did forget to take a picture of that too…
This was the photo that made Christina recognize Oslo. So thanks to Rådhusplassen for that!
So, everyone bring on your best London suggestions, whether it´s sewing or knitting related, your favorite cocktail bar or Indian restaurant, please share! I will be eagerly waiting.
Have a nice day!
