laura fulmine

Laura Fulmine has been on my mind recently, mostly because I crave peace and space after such a labour-instensive time. I went to her old site and discovered she's moved, with a new site under construction. So watch this space.

kim kyung soo

These images have been all over the place. It's Kim Kyung Soo, shot for Korean Vogue. I wanted to put them on here to keep them for reference. They've been on my desktop for about two years now... time for a little clear-out.

sadly, just as I get back to blogland..
this incredibly lovely blog, izakoo, is closing for a while
but it's hard to be a mum and I understand why

Tuesday, 2 November 2010


I've been working ridiculously hard for the past 6 months.

So it's time for a sit down, some knitting and some thinking.

I think I may have some time to visit blogland again, which is always fun.

pashley poppy

I'm very excited to be enjoying this incredible spring weather on my **shiny new pashley poppy.. with my little sausolito on the back.

We sing all the jack black songs from yo gabba gabba whilst we're whizzing along the clifftop. It's beautiful.. and I wonder if she'll remember this when she's older..?
** it's not actually that shiny any more since I dropped it once onto the car of a local estate agent, and recently down the side of a poor driver's car. Luckily the damage rubbed off... and I'm determined to practice my parking.

party time

we've just had chicken pox with a flu chaser

but this side of things was fun - sausolito very carefully made a party for her toys

the toys each had their own little dance mats. she had hers at the front and they did routines to 'Om Shanti Om'. It's her third birthday on Sunday, her party is tomorrow. It's smaller than planned due to the pox, but.. we're all quite excited anyway.

single crochet

how very exciting
I found this via id textile blog

I love this crochet and have wanted a thousand times to be able to crochet words, but harumpfh, I never seem to find time to learn

In the meantime, the work will be available here, you can sign up to be notified when it re-opens or why not leave a message on her beautiful blog, which is here

I'm cross-posting this. I have two blogs and can't decide which one I want

bunting and jack black

Christmas was a bit tough this year with our little one's health. So I haven't been able to work on any big projects... except all this bunting. It's everywhere now, hanging from lamps, over doors, chairs, pictures, dangling from ceilings, like a prettily coloured spider's nest.

My clients have been using them for dinner parties, birthday parties, and general prettification. I frequently supply props for their table settings and so on, so this has been an addition which they've happily used to adorn all variety of surfaces

And we'll just have to try and fight our way through this constantly growing jungle of bunty bubble bunting every day.

Currently, sausolito calls herself 'Jack Black Girl'. After seeing him on Yo Gabba Gabba, he's her God and after seeing that, who wouldn't agree..?
