Laurence Owen

It's not just that Laurence Owen is an old friend of mine, this man is a fabulous lyricist and musician. Go catch him live as he gears up for Edinburgh for a good evening of entertainment.

Just got me a signed copy of Tilleke Shwarz new book 'New Potatoes'. Inspiring.

stag head

Just the antlers to go... they're proving tricky.

aztec cross stitch

I fell for this All Saints top grabbing it up when it went into the sale (with the excuse that when I wasn't wearing it, it will forever hang on my wall and it does).
This Buffalo card from the London Graphics centre together with all the Aztec patterns in current fashion trends got me doodling.
Work in progress.

cross stitch sugar skull

I went for a meal round a good friend of mine recently, sitting in her loo I was met by dozen kitsch fantastic plastic Virgin Mary's, a dozen shades of tacky.

I've just started painstakingly copying out a cross stitched stag head from a vintage shirt I bought at Wolf & Gypsy in the Brighton a few years back. But the 3 shades of brown got me pinning for something a little more colourful.

This will be a challenge...
