Hotel Tour of 2014 -- Night 72

This post is late.  Tuesday night the hotel wi-fi in my hotel didn't work.  Wednesday night after overseas travel, "I" didn't work and passed out before I could blog.

I woke up in London on my last day in the UK.  I spent the morning/early afternoon at the British Museum.  I could have spent a week there!

Mosaics galore:

Proof that I "invented" ribbon candy as a quilting design:

After I checked out of my hotel in London, I noticed this beautiful walkway on my way to the train:

Future quilt alert?

I traveled back to Birmingham to an airport hotel and found the




Did you notice the fire extinguisher halfway down the hall on the left?  Here it is with the second half of the hallway:

At the end of the hallway, I turned and found...

another hallway:

My husband and I kept making references to "The Shining" movie.  We didn't notice any small children riding tricycles in the hotel, so that was a relief.

We had a fabulous dinner our last night in Birmingham.

I tried the treacle tart with sticky pudding:

Sound quite English, doesn't it?  It was delicious.

My husband had a sampler:

I may have sampled/stolen the Turkish Delight on the top left of his plate.

Farewell, UK.  I will definitely miss you.  I hope to see you again soon!

Love the British Museum! But you noticed things (i.e. the gorgeous tile floor) that I definitely missed. Safe travels home.

Ah yes, the Aztecs may have had the design for the ribbon candy but hey, you decided to put it on a quilt! Surely that counts? There are sooooo many designs to be "borrowed" in London it is almost overwhelming isn't it?

My favorite museum in London is the V&A. Almost everything on display was produced/made in the UK. The iron work is amazing...lots of quilting designs there, the tapestries, quilts, clothing, jewelry, I could go on and on. I am looking forward to returning some day.
