I also got a pair of satiny floral trousers that are SO brilliant that I am only just brave enough to wear them out of the house.

I've been meaning to have a clear-out of my hoarded supplies for many months, and have finally got around to selecting those bits that I think I'll never use, and make them available, in a venture that I'm calling Super Duper Supplies.
If you like making things (and I know you do!) please do have a look and see if anything takes your fancy - and tell a friend :)

A couple of weekends ago, my housemate Lee ran in the Paris marathon. This is the banner I made for him on his return... what is hilarious is that he managed somehow not to see it for three days, even though it's stretched eye-catchingly across the kitchen wall. Très bien, Lee!

Last weekend I went to the wonderful Crafted at Somerset House - an exhibition of various artists' and craftspeople's work from around the UK.
I won't say much, only that it was a delight, and that there are more photos of it on my flickr.
Above, and in order, you can see the work/equipment of: Natasha Daintry; Shawstephens; Mr Smith; Carreducker; Mati Ventrillon's Fair Isle Knitwear, but there was loads more great stuff too.

Moderna Museet when we were in Stockholm in February (how quick the time goes by!). There was also the most amazing exhibition on... Hilma Af Klint... and I thought the booklet rather went with the sorbet colours of the notebooks! A good coloured day.

Sick of cheap shoes that break quickly, I went and bought myself a brand new pair of Doc Marten shoes. I love them, they are such fantastic pieces of solid craftmanship, but...
... they sure do hurt like hell! At the moment I can only wear them with three pairs of socks (one very thick and wooly) and strategically placed plasters. But I will persevere. In a year or so's time, they will be the most dreamy comfortable things I own, I'm sure...

I had the most fantastic time in Stockholm last weekend. It was my 25th birthday and I wanted to do something quite good for it... so we went away. It was beautiful, it was relaxed, there was snow but things still worked... (are you listening, London?!). Yes, very good, thank you Sweden.
