Visting Ophelia

It's been a full packed week but in between a vineyard tour, making new cushion covers, bottling my blackberry gin, singing Jerusalem (don't ask!), altering a pair of curtains and worrying if we'd bought enough wallpaper I took a trip to London.

Ever since I saw the Pre-Raphaelites exhibition advertised at the Tate I had plans to visit especially when I saw that Ophelia by Millais would be featured. It was really interesting seeing how William Morris designed his wallpapers and fabrics too.
If you would like to go the exhibition runs until 13 January 2013 and you can find lots of interest here on their Pinterest board.

I also found time to finish a scarf and knit up some matching handwarmers.
 
I'll get these added to the shop and although they are a perfect match they will be available to buy separately. I'm particularly fond of the handwarmers maybe it's the vintage button trim?

Would you recommend the exhibition? Nige wanted to go. Sounds like an interesting week though. Great handwarmers, I'm currently crocheting a scarf but its slow progress.

What a crafty, cultural week! That button is indeed the perfect finsihing touch - that's the kind of extra that lifts one of your pieces to a very covetable level
