Vikings - British Museum

I've tried to visit twice but it has been so incredibly crowded that I've not really been able to appreciate it it. The massive viking boat is very impressive and the exhibition opens up a bit here but the lead up to the boat is so awful I barely took anything in. 

I'm having some bad timing lately I think as I visited the Comics Unmasked exhibition at the British Library a couple of weeks ago and that was jammed too but less oppressively. 

It's frustrating shuffling in a disorganised queue around an expensive exhibition though and you barely get to see as you feel guilty holding other people up. 

I often go to popular and crowded exhibitions though but none that made me shut down like Vikings did. I just wanted to leave as soon as I went in the second time and pretty much did. Such a shame and I'm annoyed at myself as I'm interested in the Vikings. I will be reading a book instead I guess!

Finally finished practice dress!

Spent all day yesterday sewing and can't quite believe I've made a dress! This was the test run made with old curtains/quilts I had but I think it's wearable and I'm happy because I love these fabrics and so pleased they've been made into something. It's not perfect but it's not bad! Yay! Now to make the actual dress, which will be bright yellow.

Beautiful moment

It's been a while since I've had one of those moments when the world feels beautiful and happiness washes over you.

I don't like having moved to Barnet but the sky is still beautiful.
