Winter Fairy progress

Yes, I'm back from our "24h in London". It was quite intense, but good ! I managed to buy what I wanted, and even a nice kawai messenger bag (on sale !!!). The hotel (well, bed and breakfast) we went to was basic but very well situated near Warren Street.

I had never noticed how many stairs there are in London. Loads in the underground, and as we went to specific shops using their basement as well as the ground floor, oh, more stairs ! ;)

I was sad to see so many shops closed. No more Virgin/Zavvy Mega Store. No more Borders. And no more nice little newsagent in the middle of Oxford Street to buy US magazines...

The Renegades concert was interesting. It was in that little pub/concert place, and it was absolutely packed ! You enter the bar, then there is an extra room with the stage. We were very close to the stage, but I had to forfeit and go back to the pub zone, where I found a chair from where I was able to see the concert on screen (I'm small, so even close to the stage, I couldn't see anything). And apparently it was a good idea because I left just before the pogo !!! It was weird to have all the fans packed in the concert zone when the pub was filled with people just having their Friday night social drinking !!!

Anyway, I didn't stitch on the trip, but I did yesterday, and you can see a body and wings coming out.... Annie, I always finish the head first, backstitching included, I don't know... it's like I want to be sure that the most important part, the head, is ok, before stitching the rest. A little as if I would stop stitching it if it didn't look good. No bad surprise in the end !

------------------------------

Me voilà de retour des 24h de Londres. On a fait du bon shopping, j'ai même trouvé un beau sac kawai en soldes, l'hotel était bien situé même s'il était basique. Je n'avais jamais remarqué combien d'escaliers il y avait à Londres. dans le métro, les boutiques, etc... Ca sent la vieille ville !

J'ai été déçue de voir tant de boutiques fermées, comme le Virgin megastore, Borders, et surtout le marchand de journaux qui vendait les magazines américains !

Le concert de Renegades était intéressant. C'était dans un pub avec salle de concert, et comme c'était petit, on était près de la scène. Mais pour moi qui suis petite, ça ne faisait pas trop mon affaire, je ne voyais rien quand même ! On était tellement compressés que j'ai abandonné et je suis retournée dans la partie bar, où j'ai trouvé une chaise d'où je voyais très bien le concert... sur écran ! Et mon timing était parfait, car peu après mon départ, il y a eu un pogo !!!

Je n'ai pas brodé pendant le voyage, mais j'ai avancé hier sur la winter fairy, qui commence à avoir un corps et des ailes.
