A grand day out.

Yesterday Emily Neale and I visited the charming historic city of Chichester. The main attraction for us is that there is a huge fabric and craft shop there called Eternal Maker. Emily hadn’t been before and I couldn’t wait to show her the sheer array of fabric, haberdashery, notions and other tempting crafty bits.

After fabric heaven we decided to visit cake heaven and made our way to bakery ‘Whipped and Baked’ which lies in the north of the city on the edge of the gorgeous Priory Park. I’d heard so many good things about the hand baked breads and especially the decadent oreo chocolate brownie. We plumped for a fat squidgy cinnamon roll, an oreo chocolate brownie and a gorgeous garlic, sun-dried tomato and mozzarella focaccia. Clutching our paper bags of baked goodies we sat in the sun soaked park and watched the world go by. Sadly soon it was time to return home but we will definitely be making our way back for more!



Hello, my name is Lou.

Im excited because today I have an interview in Chichester for the Foundation Art and Design course as part of my never ending quest to get a degree. Ahh the degree that has eluded me for 10 years now, yes you will be mine!

So armed with sketchbooks, soft toys, a handwritted c.v covered in fabric/stickers/washi tape, and lots of look books, its time to shine!

I found these beautiful Lomography photos of Chichester and the surrounding area by Illusio Creative

Also there is the stunning work of Paul Gonella on his beauty of a site Forever Circling, these shots of Chichester Harbour make me go giddy.
