Some photos from todays pottering in the lapin burrow.
I love my sewing machine, tons of stickers and scrawling in Sharpie make it mine.
My beaten old sewing/work desk repeatedly stamped.
I have 4 or so jars that hold scraps, treasure and odd bits.
Happy feet resting by my knitting and fabric bags.
I love this old crochet blanket, it was made by our aunt as a wedding present and its huge!
Just hand finishing another delightful addition to the ooh la lapin family.
Wilbur my cat has a large cushion that he sleeps on next to my desk, occasionally he lazily tries to attack a stray piece of wool or cotton dangling from my lap.
Made this little felt chap today, he has a mini boarding pass,where is he going?
I have enjoyed sharing my day. Have super happy weekend!
Hurrah and hooray! Just waiting for the t-shirts, tote bags, postcards and stickers to arrive. In the meantime some sweet ribbons/trims and sushi bones vol 1 has been added, enjoy!
I have been busy…
I would also like to send a big thank you to Mark Persaud who I featured on Boys Who Do It Well, he sent me a t-shirt of his Pompey Eye Test! How cool is that? Will post a pic up tomorrow, what a nice guy!
Happy Christmas to all my lovely readers! We have just finished opening our gifts and I have the most wonderful t-shirt from Bored and the a wrap/scarf with a fox, bunny and bird on it.
Here are some nice pictures to look at, have a terrific day!
…deserves this as a present! The facebook cat comes with an ‘ooh la lapin’ goody pack including stickers, badges and a mystery prize!
Yes its bloody awful but also loveable and finished with shoddy crap hand-stitching! Buy it in the shop!
So I’m back a day earlier than I thought, feeling tippity top and I really missed my blog, its like some kind of social crutch. I’ve had a restful week, made tiny pretzel log cabins at work on Tuesday, did awesome stuff at work yesterday with some amazing kids and ate sushi after work.
I have had some awesome emails and comments about my blog from so many people and feel pretty special so thanks for all your kind words. Here are some pictures I have collected this week, if you want to know where some of them came from I dont know, just random downloads.
Sometimes I wonder if my role on this planet is significant in any way, probably not and I am ok with that. I like colouring in my pictures of animal people, helping out where I can, being kind and sewing things. Standing on the seafront makes me feel small, like another stone on the beach, but I draw comfort from that. If I am another stone than I am part of a defence against coastal erosion, like some fucking metaphor for society.
Im just finalising the arrangements for working with Cumberland House in Portsmouth for a project as part of my ongoing art project WHY? Portsmouth. More info to come soon but here are some images I took awhile back.
