Treasure!

I have made other things too. Please allow me to impress myself onto your retina (not like that): Bird necklace (polymer clay and nail varnish) Flowers (crochet, beads) Hanging Indian style charm (polymer clay, beads)   Cushion (liberty fabric)   And that’s what I’ve done recently. 🙂 Adieu!

Art Nouveau Bag

Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]

It’s a first – I’m making things and teaching AT THE SAME TIME

It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]

Here are some finished works from previous posts (fan necklaces) and new projects (brooches, pendants and books). I will be selling these over in my Etsy shop soon. The weather is awful at the moment. It’s dark and stormy outside – but […]

Cakes, Bubushka Dolls, Scarves and Blankets

Wow. What a week. I went to my friend’s mehndi ceremony, which was beautiful. I was taken with the amount of colour and sparkly bits on display. I loved the food too. Samosas, spicy chicken, curry, rice – nom! My friend was very emotional but looked beautiful. Today is her wedding. I can’t wait. I […]

Crazy Single Crochet Bag

It is official. One of my hands is significantly thinner that the other. I blame it on crochet. I have at last finished my bag which is completely crocheted using single crochet stitch. I know. I’m mad. But a bag made from the single crochet stitch gives so much more strength than a larger, looser […]
