So the packing that we all take in our family trip to the sea predominantly involves things to make, or make things with or to play with. Clothes packing is pretty low comparative to projects to see through. Twin 2 had already discussed a jumper he wanted (remember his previous design foray) As usual there […]
Ah, yes I get to work with so many amazing people. Work is probably a loose version of what you may expect, what I should say is “be with, create with, plan adventures with”. Yes that’s more like it. I’m trying to contain my excitement, there are good things happening, chances to be with exciting […]
Blankets feature “big” in our lives, living in an old Victorian terrace house, well that and the fact that everyone loves to snuggle under them. To be fair they would bring their duvets down and lounge around if I let them but you have to draw the line somewhere (or hope to!). This is the […]
So Jack Frost may be nipping at my toes and it’s the perfect excuse to roll out the hand knit cashmere bedsocks, wooly hats and the works but I am also thinking of Paris in the Springtime, well not quite Paris and a little later than Spring but still France (and I can’t help it […]
So we got back safe and sound (much to my relief, but I won’t go into that) and we had an amazing time with much laughter, amusement and celebratory activities. Ro (aka Novasteel) was a fabulous host, we learnt a lot, enjoyed lovely company, made some new Ravelry friends and were reacquainted with people who […]
So I did find some space, it was here By day, it looked like that By evening it looked like this Sea and space, there are other beaches in between and there are other spaces as well to stay but these two are my perfect matches. […]
Counting down to Nuit Blanche. Nuit Blanche is an exciting "cultural all-nighter" presenting contemporary art events from dusk to dawn. It enlivens cities all round the world such as Paris, Berlin and Toronto, and 2010 is the debut for Reading. This first year will be a small but magical series of indoor and outdoor events […]
Some eagle eyed visitors may have noticed that the blog has moved but it’s for a good reason to enable more things to happen from this one space instead of running round all over the place adding bits and pieces – hang on, that sounds like my life in the real world, running round here and there doing bits and pieces.
Lately we have been visiting studios, openings, art things and the such every day. Today was no different as a day, we went to visit the Kesslings but there is always something slightly different going on there. So today we saw a cat in the pram (no cats were harmed in the taking of this) […]
The children are on holiday and I am working but inbetween my work involves things they can do too. So we went on a trip to The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, normally I am working there and it was very bizarre to see someone else on *my stand*. The fair is 10 years old […]
