actual work...

...here are the purses that i have been making for the past couple of weeks or so. i am using the old octopus screen prints that i did on calico in 2008. i have also used a friend's old pyjama bottoms to line the purses - recycling in action! i have made about sixteen of these so far and some are in PAD right now as for etsy - they will be online in the shop as soon as i take some decent photos.

back to oliver jeffers...
...as asked by Jen, here is the owl that Oliver drew and the other picture that I was given by the lady who was handing out his drawings from the 'read and draw' session that he did. it is a tad crumpled as the wind got it that day but as soon as i can - it is going in a frame! i am not very good at taking photos and so my etsy shop listings have come to a standstill for the moment.
new friend...

...here we have another cacti in the drawing room. one that likes to wear pins. i found him at the Craft Shop in the Royal Exchange Theatre and he was made by Andrea Lord. I am unable to find any internet links for her. he will be my new little helper while i am phaffing around with fabrics and the sewing machine.
