That is the classiest cupcake I've ever seen! So glad you had a lovely time. I've met up with people I first encountered online, and they were, without exception, as lovely as they seemed.

Take care :-) x

PS. *wave* to Kristina ... I look forward to reading your blog!


wow. Just can't think of a better day than that. Cake, Yarnstorm, Persephone and champagne.

That sounds like a perfect girlie day out! Beautiful cupcake and how brave to risk grey icing. The champagne sounds particularly good!


ooh, lucky you! I can just imagine what a wonderful time you had.


poo! I wish I lived closer to London!! Ok, can you tell I'm jealous!! fairycakes AND champagne!!! *looks at her now cold cup of tea*

What a fantastic day and such a marvelous experience.

It's another bit of life's synchronicity as I have blogged about my opportunity to meet a fellow blogger this weekend and I also mentioned how life is so good. We must be on the same wave length--I love it!


You lucky, lucky girl! It sounds like a perfect day. I'm v. jealous...


Going green here!


Oh, it sounds perfect! Is the champagne bar as wonderful as it looks on the website? I'm glad you had such a lovely day (and actually a bit relieved I didn't come as I am coming down with something that feels particularly horrible today - would have hated to pass that on)

Oh what a fun day! I'm very jealous too! Lucy x


Sounds like a fabulous day. I love Persephone books - I went to a talk about them at Cheltenham Lit Fest last year and just love the endpapers and the look of them (the stories are pretty good too!). How lovely to meet up with other craft people there too.

Sounds like the perfect day - knitting, sewing, cake, books and being surrounded by like-minded people.

beautiful cake!mmmmm

I have so many friends who are crafty, maybe I should harass them into starting a blog?


How lovely to share your passion for all things crafty with blog friends. Too bad I live on the other side of the ocean!


sounds like a wonderful day. I'm bummed we can't get her book in the states. I've read such great things about it.


Sounds like a great day out, Ali. I'm not a craft blogger, but I would love someone to post a tutorial on how to make a perfect-looking cupcake like that one. Did they taste as good as they look?

I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your blog after lurking on it for a while.

And you have made me think of champagne again on the day I have just ordered some, which is good timing. How dreadful to have been reminded when there was none on its way.


Nice to see you had a special day to yourself too! And what a day - all the best things in the world mixed into one lovely experience!


Sounds like you had a fabulous day! I love the look of the cupcake! I'm glad you enjoyed the talk and meeting new people and I am jealous of the champagne in St Pancras - I visited the station when I was in London recently just to see it!! But as I was alone and it was 11am and I was going to a work meeting in Cambridge I didn't think a champagne was a good idea!!


sounds like a christmas present of a day!


Just what I needed, another reason to wish I lived in the UK... or at least could visit! Someday. My own version of 84 Charing Cross Road.

Thanks for sharing the loveliness.

Megan Young

Awsome post, my friend. Thanks for the reminder.


champagne+craft+funny women=my kind of a day. glad you had fun.

A day at Liberty & Persephone - what a dream day

Angel Jem

Lucky you! I read that Jane was going to be talking in my Persephone biannual & wished that I knew a sensible way to get to London and back between the hours of 9.30 and 3.30 pm. No can do from Liverpool, so I'll just live vicariously through you! Hope I enjoyed the cupcake?
