It is almost time for the annual Prism exhibition. Regular visitors will know this is usually at the Mall Galleries but this year we are at an exciting new venue in London. The exhibition "Lines of Communication" will be at Hoxton Arches, a fabulous gallery in the railway arches underneath Hoxton Railway station.
It is easy to get to either directly to Hoxton railway station, via the many bus routes or it is also just 15 - 20 minutes walk from Old Street underground and Liverpool Street stations. It is a lively and vibrant area with plenty of cafés and markets and by moving to a new gallery the exhibition is open later each day and runs for more than twice as long as usual... So no excuse not to visit! It is also right next door to the fabulous Geffrye museum, a favourite haunt of my childhood when we lived up the road in Stoke Newington.
And me... Yes I'm still stitching like some crazy woman but actually starting to believe I will get it all done in time. I'm trying to relieve the hours and hours of stitching by getting in as much walking as possible, but not as much as I would like. I'm also allowing myself time off to do things like write a blog post... "If I finish this section I can have 15 minutes to write a blog post" ... "one hour more stitching and I can check emails...". Oh boy, I know how to have a good time! Do you make deals with yourself like that or is it only me?
Speaking of which... It is time I got back to that sewing machine... Another hour of stitching and then I can make a pot of tea!
