Sorry that I missed last week's WOYWW and the return visits but I was away for my birthday. Did I mention that it was my birthday last week? No? Are you sure :-)
Full details for my visit to London is in the previous post (lots of street art and a whores graveyard!).
This week all that is on my desk is some fabric. Not just any old fabric, no sir. This is some fabulous African fabric. Bricklane has some great fabric shops, now mainly Indian or African but some beautiful fabrics. These 2 pieces of cotton are 2 yards each and I bought them as offcuts from a lady in Spittafields market who makes bags from them. I mentioned the bags I had been making recently and how I love bright linings rather than dark as it makes it easier to see things inside and she mentioned she had some large offcuts she was selling for only £4 each!!! So I bought these two (I was proud I only bought two..I nearly came away with all 6 pieces)!
I was lucky with all my birthday wishes, cards and gifts but these 2 cards really stood out. The hand coloured one is from Gashead Zoe (just check out her colouring....always takes my breath away) and the other is from my brother and sister in law (crafting goodies are NOT clutter brother dear!!).
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Actor Mourns Heiress Lover'.......not sure how I feel about this one, a bit of a downer so moving along......
So, why not join us for a legal snoop at desks across the globe? Some clean, some full of art others on the floor and some just SO inspirational. Join us at Julia's blog (link on the right)
