Louisa and I went to a meeting of the Contemporary Quilt group of the Quilters' Guild yesterday. It was held in London, not far from the British Museum. We decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea in the restaurant there, so when the meeting finished we hurried off down a very windy Tottenham Court Road.
The prices in the Great Court Restaurant match the height of its position high up above the historic Reading Room of the Museum. Feeling appropriately decadent we tucked in to the miniature sandwiches and patisseries that were beautifully presented for us by the battalion of black-clad waiters.

I took some close-up pictures of some of my cakes.
