Already this week I have:
1. Made five strawberry pavlovas
All totally inedible... because they are of the millinery variety. Five pavlova hats for five rather dubious pavlova dancers in our village pantomime. Anna Pavlova would be turning in her grave!
2. I've been front of camera again
(a day too late for the BAFTAs unfortunately)
This time I was at the very lovely Bee Crafty near Huntingdon to film for Just Hands TV. Just a short clip to promote the different classes I will be taking at Bee Crafty in the coming months, (details are on my website) plus a short demonstration from me on how to make a machine made tassel.
No shots of me but here is Valerie from Just Hands TV with Sarah and Julie who own Bee Crafty.
3. I've been making some more books
Some are special orders but this one has gone into the shop.
A tiny Japanese stab bound book, covered and lined with silkscreened Japanese paper.
Complete with a hinged cover.
and an origami butterfly on the matchbox lid.
The drawer is trimmed with washi tape and has a tassel made from gold Japanese thread.
In case you hadn't guessed this book has a Japanese theme and is in my shop now!
