My husband and I had the good fortune to visit London this past week. By far, my favorite site has been the Victoria and Albert Museum, which is filled to the brim with everything you could imagine of tremendous interest.
When we were going through it, I couldn't help but notice the floors in a couple of the rooms. Quilt patterns!!!
They also had some wonderful tapestries. I thought this one looked just like the William Morris pattern I've seen. I'm sorry it's so dark but I don't think they wanted flash used and the room was quite dark to preserve these beauties. I personally love looking at tapestries and marvel at the degree of detail in each of them. I couldn't imagine having to make the wool, dye it, and then weave it, covering every little piece of canvas. They were beautiful.
I have figured out that I can email pictures from my phone to myself and upload them to my blog. Having wifi in the flat we are renting makes a big difference. I will post some more photos before we leave tomorrow.
Love to you all from very chilly London,
