We are getting better organised and learning how to pace ourselves with this new lifestyle here on the canal in London. I have been on the lookout for quilting fabrics whilst walking around all sorts of streets that normally I would’t see if travelling by car or bus etc. I have seen many things, but not a lot of quilting fabric! Although I have found some delicious fabrics! We have walked and walked, been to markets where all different kinds of food are available, it is all so interesting. The different architecture is fascinating with some very old buildings that we simply don’t see in New Zealand.
So, I thought a quick glimpse into the canal life was in order:
A misty winter morning on the canal.
Working the locks, not always an easy task, and guess who gets to steer the boat? and who gets to do all the physical stuff??
Sometimes a bit precarious!
Always plenty of admirers!
Inside – the bedroom
Inside – the bathroom
The rewards at the end of the day!
So you can see that I am doing pretty well with the stitching situation! We have a great little coal/wood burner that keeps us snug and warm!
