Just returned from a batch of holidays with Easter and the Royal Wedding/Bank holiday weekend. I haven't been able to do much felt making so have been working on some much more transportable crochet jewellery instead including my first ever Glow in the Dark item ! We spent a couple of days in Brussels which was fantastic - a doddle to get to from London on the Eurostar and full of so many beautiful art nouveau buildings!
We were lucky enough to turn up outside one of the best, Maison Ct Cyr, just as someone who has just refurbished the facade turned up to give a talk to a group about the difficulties and dilemas of the project. One of the issues was apparently whether to return the building to its original colour palette which included the pale green metalwork rather than the black you can see in earlier photos. Another high spot was stumbling across The Sequence by Arne Quinze close to our hotel - gorgeous!
