but worth it. Yesterday was the NFL Fan Rally in Trafalgar Square and the weather had just hurled itself into winter but the promise of Wes Welker and Tom Brady had me donning the layers, I was there early enough to be right at the front, necessary at my height. Oh my goodness.
The crowd yelled for Gronkowski to "spike the mike" so he did, someone captured it.
Sam Bradford and the Rams team
Mr Kraft said he could see a franchise team here within the decade. Maybe for my 80th birthday?
Super day, this was the closest I could get to "Wes", display in the Nike store
So looking forward to the match today, hope it's a close one.
didn't disappoint this year. It occurred to me as we finished a ghastly journey that it amounted to an annual pilgrimage.
Good things happened right inside the door.
This magnificent edifice was made to support pieces of unfinished work. It made me laugh and brought a tear, it was amazing how much work had been put into the pieces, only to be abandoned.
Inside there were two exhibitions that I liked. One was called Jabberwocky, a joint display by Ann Small and Sue Walton.
These are some of Ann's little men.
You can see more of Ann's work here and you can see Sue's here I was so entranced I forgot to photograph her fork fairies.
The other exhibition was by the North East region of the Embroiderer's Guild, named Mining a Golden Seam, "The mining industry and community that has been such a feature of life
in the North East: exploring the riches of the earth's strata and
geology: our timeless fascination with gold in all its forms."
You can see more pictures here. It was lovely to see Lynda Monk, she was demonstrating on the Art Van Go stand. I bought some beauutiful hand dyed sari ribbon from Dale, they only left Australia on Tuesday and here they were all set up.
