And kicking off our Olympic Celebrations...

Some of you may be aware that the Olympics are coming to London this summer.  Now normally this blog is concerned with quilting information, news and views but occasionally I need to stray and the Olympics coming to London seems like a good enough reason.  And so may I present to you, my Mum (who is a huge fan of the Olympics when they're in other countries so is going to be off the chart excited this year) sporting her very own Olympic sunglasses.  Now you don't get cooler than that.

  32. I remember the excitement when the Winter Olympics came to Salt Lake City in 2002. Veerrrry exciting. But, we didn't have cool glasses like your mom, which would have made the experience over the top.
