balmain art + craft show 2011

there's nothing quite like the annual balmain art + craft show to nudge me into pretty little pin-making mode. this time of year has become a messy craft-couch season where i work my way through a backlog of dvds, stitch pins, and ignore the fact that my floorboards haven't seen the light of day in weeks. sheets of felt fan out over the floor like colourful carpet tiles, and i surround myself with hundreds of buttons, a tangle of threads, cardboard cut-outs and rogue needles (ouch).
note for next year: invest in a pin cushion.

vanishing act

well i haven't exactly been off travelling the world, but i have been swept away by some wordy projects for the last few months. after a trip to the mca zine fair on the weekend i am well and truly re-inspired to get crafty. all the fabulous, scrumptious, hairy, spoony zines fluttering around have made my fingers twitch. this rainy, shivery weather, too, makes me want to rug up on the couch in front of an old western, with a hot cup of tea and a basket of felt.

see you soon xx

plp in spoonful zine!

i mentioned a wee while ago that i was working on a fun little project . . . well i can tell you now that it was for the second-ever issue of the beautiful spoonful zine! so here's my contribution to the mountain goat-inspired 'objects of desire' section . . .

the not-so-lonely goatherd

. . . and i had so much fun with it, i couldn't help creating another one out of this wild and woolly fabric i found, perfect for a hairy little fellow atop an icy mountain . . .

king of the hill

i can't wait to have my copy in my hands - it's such an inspiring and cosy little publication - a perfect read with a cup of tea in this rainy weather! if you'd like a copy, please visit the spoonful online shop or check out the website for stockists.
