Because I am living in a material world

Madonna was on to something … who knew a fabric shop could be so much fun?

Frank Orsen, my teddy bear, and I escorted the Big M to her favourite shop in Tooting (maybe even her favourite shop in London, if not, the world) – the Sewing and Craft Superstore on Balham High Street.


It has every conceivable type of fabric and crafty stuff from tulle to tartan and buckram to bias binding.

Frank and I loved feeling all the different textures. It was like a real life Touchy-Feely Play Book. Our best bit was playing with the velvets and netting! Well that and burying myself in the remnants bucket.

The staff are all really nice and made a big fuss of me. The shop also has wide enough aisles for the buggy, which is unusual in haberdasheries.


Quilty pleasures

Today I am chillaxing in the countryside, staying with my godmother’s parents. I’ve fed the chicken, taken the dog for a walk, bounced on the trampoline and filled my lungs with fresh country air.

I am now helping my god-sister (sister of godmother) make a quilt as an auction item for Ehlers-Danlos Support UK’s conference. My favourite one that she has made so far is ‘busy, busy bumblebee.’

She makes loads of them entirely by hand with no sewing machine!!! You can see her work here: here you can see me modelling them.
