Canterbury – part two

We are having such fun. There really is nothing like spending time with friends with the same hobby.
Here is Viv, our style icon :), working on a coat inspired by a Burberry one. I can tell you hers will be a great knock off.

Other projects in progress. Valerie, if you want a fashion show, be sure to be there next year!! I will post a few more pictures though during the next days.

I got stuck in my project this afternoon and before continuing I thought it best to take a run. From the place we are at to Canterbury cathedral and back (about 5 km in total). With this gorgeous sight just after dusk.

And one of the highlights of the weekend: the ugly fabric swap. The fabric Joana is holding got the ‘prize’ for the ugliest fabric. If you could only feel the texture and material….

Listen. I resisted commenting yesterday. But, I am SO FREAKING JEALOUS right now. This sounds like the best and most amazing weekend ever. I am inviting myself in some future year. I just need you to all know that now.
