Nom nom nom

Flesh and juice of a lime, spoonful of sugar, slug of bacardi, top up with ginger beer and strain.

Looking forward to Friday Late at the V&A tomorrow with Nickerjac and others. Still haven't got to the Quilts exhibition so hopefully will get a peek at that too.

A terrible quandry

I got my hexagons out when I got home as I've been longing to start sewing them together. BUT...do I sew them randomly, which would give this kind of effect:

OR do I sort them into colour groups and go for a bit of a colour wave, like this...

quandry...quandry...quandry 
Great word that. Help me decide? I've put a poll in the sidebar (on the right).

My mini-me and mini-pooch are progressing well. Here is the current status:

I mistakenly thought the deadline was today but of course it is 26th June. So loads of time to get crafting. The details are here and the finished articles will be in an exhibition at the Science Museum!

I have unexpectedly made contact with a good friend from school who I hadn't heard from in 15 years. I wasn't sure it was him from the photo online and so I rather tentatively emailed. A few emails later and he asked me to send him a photo and it made me realise I don't really have many of myself. I always tend to be the one behind the camera. So I made an effort and this is the best I could do.

Bit rubbish. I am just not photogenic. Meanwhile, despite having bigged up Rigby & Pellar to everyone who looked like they had a minute, I am almost regretting my visit. I wore my favourite bra today - an old friend with polka dots and everything. I Could Not Wait to get home and take it off. It felt so uncomfortable! It's rather a shame as I'll have to ditch it but it did make me wonder - are there any projects for upcycling bra's? I've seen some disgusting bags and purses but that's it. Anyone got any ideas?
