My favourite bits from 'Natural Histories' exhibition, Artworks MK

'Natural Histories', a touring textile exhibition by Cas Holmes and Anne Kelly, at Artworks MK

Quilts exhibition at the V&A

My trip to the V&A was brilliant, I enjoyed the quilts exhibition but unfortunately no pics allowed.  I took some lovely shots around the Museum which I've included below.  I'd forgotten they were also hosting a Grace Kelly exhibition, showcasing some of her gowns, unfortunately all tickets were sold out on the day so I had to make do with a book. I love her stunning '50's dresses!

Words of wisdom but perhaps only for rich people? from above the entrance way to the cafe

Contemporary light fitting, beautiful guilt ceiling and stained glass windows in the cafe.

The Artworks MK exhibition was good too, I loved the bug and bird motifs and the sewn elements of the works.  I've included some pics of my favourite bits in my next post.  Thank you Artworks MK.
