Oh what a weekend! I needed to go to London on Saturday for a service at Southwark Cathedral so I decided that I would arrive bright and early so that I could visit the Designer Guild store. I was looking for a very special gift for a friend and was sure that I would find some delightful fabric there.
From Euston I decided to walk to Euston Square station so that I would be on the right line for the area that I wanted. The station was shut. I walked to the next station, buzzed myself through to the platforms and found that several of the underground lines were shut for maintenance. Took a train to what I thought was the right stop and asked for directions. Took a train back two stops to where I should have alighted.
Asked directions and caught a bus. Asked directions and walked what felt like miles. Asked directions and walked what felt like further miles. Arrived at the Designer Guild shop - it's shut on Saturdays!! That was most of my morning gone, so I realised that I would have to start heading for Southwark Cathedral without having bought any fabric, designer or otherwise.
By a combination of bux and taxi I arrived at the Cathedral with a few minutes to spare so I ran through the market to the cathedral - and was informed by a very embarrassed lady that the back of my skirt was caught up in my tights.
I don't know how that had happened but I do know that in future I shall buy my quilting fabric from local stores or the internet!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm going to stick to quilting next week.
