La soffitta del tempo perduto...

....è là , nella mente e nel sogno, dove è possibile recuperare le speranze e le aspettative, dove volere è potere e tutto diviene possibile, dove la fantasia e la creatività non vengono strangolate dai ritmi di una vita frenetica ed il tempo scorre lentamente, dove la mente vola libera senza restrizioni, dove finalmente si è liberi di essere e ci si può rifugiare e prendere un respiro.

The attic of the lost there, in the mind and dreams, where is possible to recover the hopes and the expectations, where what you want is what you can and everything becomes possible, where fantasy and creativity are not strangled from the rhythms of a phrenetic life and time flows slowly, where the mind flyes free with no restrictions, where finally one is free of being and can refuge in and take a breath.

London and the Knitting & Stitching show

One of my dreams has always been going once again in London; I have been there 10 years ago and absolutely fallen in love with this lovely town. So at the last minute, me and a very dear friend Silvia, decided to go from Thursday to Sunday to see the Knitting & Stitching show in Alexandra Palace and then have a walk around the city in the other days.
We arrived in the early afternoon on Thursday and after the check in to the Hanger Lane Premier Inn Hotel (a really nice Hotel) we went to visit Harrods, I have never seen so much luxury and wonderful goods all together ! Sadly my camera is not working well so no photos, the ones you see in this post are taken from the web.

On Friday morning we went to the show; I have seen Nicola Jarvis exibition that was very nice and have also found very interesting the exibition of Phillipa Turbull with some old Crewel embroidery that where lovely.

The show was full of all you can imagine about needlecraft and knitting and was a real joy !

Saturday was the day of Portobello Road Market at Nothing Hill, we visited only the part related to antique and collector goods, I wanted to buy everything !

See those incredible walls that are located in to a cloth store, an amazing collection of old sewing machines !

In the afternoon we had a lovely walk in Oxfort street and in Soho and we also visited Liberty a beautiful old store.

So "Keep calm and carry on " as Londoners are used to say...on next post I will talk about what happened at the Victoria & Albert Museum...soon !
