Sadler’s Well

These are pictures from a visit to Sadler’s Well.



Crochet squares

I have lots of individual balls of wool, which I collected in the past. I decided to make crochet squares. So far, I made 150. This is the pattern I used. If you are interested in making the same one, let me know.

craft central

Yesterday I visited the craft central show in Clerkenwell, London. It displayed the work of designers and makers of prints, ceramics, textiles, interior products, fashion and jewellery. Here are some photos from the show.

Artists’ Open House

I visited a few studios that were part of Artists’ Open House, as part of Dulwich Festival.

John Lewis

Two years ago, John Lewis opened a roof garden on the Oxford Street branch. There was also an exhibition about the history of the store.

Crochet bag

I finished this crochet shoulder bag. It is a loopy crochet stitch. I mixed three colours together.


I just finished reading this book called Spies by Michael Frayn. I thought it was boring, and just got a bit exciting in the last two chapters.
