Kaffe Fassett exhibition-opening night

Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the Fashion and Textile museum in London .....I was in heaven, child in a sweet shop stuff. Opened by Kirsty Allsopp, it was a real feast for the eyes.....I do happen to be a long time admirer of his work (have I mentioned that before?) but you really don't need to be a fan to enjoy this show. It was a mixture of quilts, tapestry and knitting, with a smattering of original paintings for the fabric and mosaic. 
I managed a sneak peek before the opening night when the exhibition was being put together. A mountain of tapestry (do I exaggerate?) were on the floor waiting to be displayed....many I have made from kits. I was soooo tempted to stuff a few in my bag, but these were all from the home of Mr Fassett and I couldn't do that.( his house must be a little on the bare side now)

I met eldest for a meal first as she works round the corner now and then she came with me. Two treats in one night.

I know the pictures aren't great....but this is a treat, so if you can.... go.

I've been rumbled

My own fault. Perhaps in the back of my mind it was a bit of a test.   Never mind. Eldest daughter owned up that she has been reading my blog and I think I have spoilt the surprise putting the picture up. But nothing has been said only implied. My fault.... lesson learnt. Too late to start afresh now !
