I was in London last week for a talk at the V&A and the ballet, but as I knew that Her Majesty would be at Westminster Abbey for the Bath Service as I arrived in London, I chanced a trek over to the Abbey on foot in the vague hope I may see the Queen leave the Abbey....thankfully I walked instead of taking the bus as the traffic was horrendous.....anyway I got there just in time to see the Queen depart - sadly not walking from the Abbey to her car but from a side entrance actually in her big car. Had I gone further over on a side road I would have had a better view but I think you can make her out - the fist photo is my original photo and the second is that photo zoomed in/blown up so you can see.....

True to form, this year is no exception at my sister's home - she has had 3 lots of new arrivals this spring! Here is the first family of mallard ducklings to arrive a few weeks ago - there were 8 ducklings but only 6 have so far made it. How cute are these little fellas?!

In Venice I found exactly what I was looking for:-
|Yes a Maxi Twilly|
|Brides de Gala|
|Top side pink|
|Under side black|
|The pink side has a less intense pattern|
|Whereas the black is a lot more busy. |
A great combo I think you will agree and very good value!
|Now my modelling shots were taken in a hurry |
so please forgive the slightly untidy look! First up a bow.
|Simply wrapped around the neck and ends |
secured with scarf ring
|A bow using the black side|
|A Maxi Twilly Triple Knot in the black (how to here)|
|And in pink.|
|Here I gave the scarf a twist at the |
back to get one side in each colour.
|Bow as before using both colours|
|Here I folded the scarf in half |
length ways and then used a
shawl ring to secure for a shorter
|Just a wrap around and single |
knot to tie.
|The Hermes window in Venice with a |
beautiful scarf I VERY much covet!!
