Hi all,

Yes those fantasy lace adventures have come to an end!  It was an amazing time.  So much lace. and not enough time.

On the last day we went to the Cowper and Newton museum in Olney.  It was a great place and beautiful lace.  It was also interesting to read about the upper class ladies that did knotting - very fashionable to bring it with you to show off your talents.

Here are a few more pieces.  A beautiful collar on the left, and Queen Victoria's wedding dress on the right.  Quite a tiny waist

Jill's camera did better at the long shots and mine was great for the closeups.     

This picture is part of the steel that holds up the London Eye.  We took a night ride and it was one wow after another.  Can you see the lace?

It was a lovely trip , I hadn't been called " hey love" so many times in a day, let alone a whole week.  Thanks Jill & Bob.  Maybe it was the break, or the cold, or just being in England - this trip has me seeing lace all around me.
