Well, I am working on a scarf for my grandmother for her birthday - um, as it was today I kind of missed that one... and did a boyfriend scarf for Christmas. I will make him relinquish it for a photo! Had been doing silver jewellery, and will be going back as soon as I have the spare cash again! Mainly its been baking, to be honest... All good wholesome fattening fun!

I'm a freak, I know. I love January. Time to start over, it's even better for new pencil cases than September. A friend once told me that it's a lousy time to start those physical processes of transformation, like detoxes,... Continue reading

Although I did take Art all the way through secondary school, like everyone else I had my specialisations. Calligraphy. Pottery . Textiles. Lino-cutting. Ok, anything except life-drawing. Naturally that was a compulsive discipline. For our finals, the model happened to... Continue reading

Making at the Making Space. What’ll we do this weekend, we pondered. Shopping? Bit of X-Factor? Mooch to the pub for lunch? Oh come, hardly. No, let’s paint dental alginate on our faces in an east London workshop and then... Continue reading

Caroline mooted the idea of the Blitz party a couple of weekends ago, and in the spirit of saying yes to everything, I jumped at the chance because it’s one of those things we always miss and then grumble about.... Continue reading

Well certainly back for another blast at any rate! I miss it when I don't blog - it's a discipline that I must reinstate! x

That I came back. I'm sorry, I have actually been off having adventures but I either don't bring a camera, so feel like it will bore you all to tears without photos or you know, it was just so long... Continue reading

These are fantastic! Just stumbled into here. Don't be discouraged about the book. In publishing it often happens that when projects get passed on, a 'new' editor isn't as enthusiastic but that's more about being proprietorial and about territory ("It wasn't my idea so I'm not going to stick up for it") It must have commercial legs or it wouldn't have been commissioned originally. Give it some time...

thanks for such good advice. I love sewing and increasingly friends who are getting interested ask for advice - I'm going to direct them here *before* we go machine shopping!
Ok so someone else already mentioned this, or as we know it in London, the Secret Liberty Fabric Shop. A complete Aladdin's Cave with many current and also 'out of print' fabrics. I happen to be going tomorrow!

Wow. I also thought this was an old post but no - wishing you a good journey and a happy outcome! PS the same thing happened to my aunt and uncle almost two decades ago... the agency called at Christmas to ask if they'd consider taking a second baby boy, eighteen months after their first. Best Christmas present ever!

Jeez, someone needs to smack me when I even think about another new hobby. This coming from the woman who is *knitting* all her Christmas presents, 'cos yeah, that's the most time-effective craft - 1 down, 2 WIPs, 1 not even devised yet - and just bought an Adana letterpress...but it's still October, right? But you should learn to knit - it rocks!

When I was in NYC last week - on holidays from the UK - I was bemoaning the fact that I couldn't buy your book as I was a few days too early - and then a woman in the shop piped up and said she designed it! What a small world... Huge congrats, I can't wait to get it!

Having seen the top in person, I can confirm it's lovely! Looking forward to hearing more about your stall - I am tempted to try it again myself.

Ugh. (that's a sympathy ugh for me - I'm supposed to be doing that too, to get a rough idea of how much space I'll need in a new place) I look forward to seeing all the crafty goodness that will come out the new uncluttered space!
