- Stitching with others is so bloody brilliant!!! A few snapshots from today's Scrappy Collage workshop at Grace's gorgeous new @beyond_measure_uk space. These pics perfectly sum up today for me: enjoying cloth and thread and each other / appreciating how each person has their own unique textile & thread handwriting / realising how much of ourselves goes into each stitch / reframing perceived "imperfections" as the things that make us "us" / feeling the benefits and joy of slowing down, focusing on the process instead of the end result and being willing to go where the process takes us.Beginnings.Some proper introductions to our beautiful hens who have now been with us for a whole week (already feels like they've always been here 🥰): 1 - Clara - first into everything 2 - Frida - big and blousey 3 - Barbara - gobby show-off 😆Our hen house finally has some residents!! Now just need to think of some names....🤔

McQueen had a rare talent to produce beautifully crafted pieces and alongside a handful of other designers, past and present, is a designer whose work I respect and find inspiring. This weighty tome is published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to accompany their spring 2011 exhibition in celebration of McQueen’s work.
The cover has an eerie holographic image of McQueen morphing into a metallic skull. The book is beautifully bound in brown fabric with metallic embossed title down the spine and when you open it…
There are lengthy and interesting introductions by the curator of the exhibition Andrew Bolton and by the respected fashion journalist Susannah Frankel, but the book is dominated by beautiful photographs of some of McQueens key works alongside quotes from the man.
In future, when I feel in need of a little creative pick-me-up, I know where I’ll be going.
