In my studio or my mind.

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!

If this is it were all done for…

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.

The Crust terrifies me, its beneath you now!
