A great day out!

11 04 2010

This week I visited the V and A Quilt exhibition with my sister Liz and niece Rosa.  It really is a fascinating collection of quilts and we spent 2 hours looking at all the exhibits.

We were all fascinated by the quilt made by prisoners in Wandsworth Prison.  The charity called Fine Cell Work teach the men to piece, quilt and do needlepoint and for many it obviously boosts their self esteem, fills their empty hours and earns them some money. You can read about it on this link.

After a quick trip to Liberty and a little fabric shopping, I met up with Richard and we enjoyed a visit to the Van Gogh exhibition at the Royal Academy.  It is almost at the end of the run and so was very crowded but we were still able to enjoy the letters and paintings.

We ended the day with dinner at Rasa, a favourite Indian restaurant which serves great Kerelan food.

Quilts, meeting up with family, fabric shopping, great art and delicious food.  What more could anyone wish for!
