pennies per hour of pleasure

 I really want to share this great website with you. Pennies per hour of pleasure is a fantastic idea. It has excellent knitting and crochet patterns donated by designers, and merely asks you to donate according to the amount of pleasure you will derive from making and wearing this item. All money raised goes to Medicines sans frontieres which is even better.

Stitch and Bitch in East London!

Stitch and Bitch in East London!

Stitch and Bitch/ knit and natter/ knit whilst you drink I have been wanting to hang out with the wonderful I Knit London possee for years. But their meetings are often on days I cannot make and usually too far away from me. But every month I longingly read their wooly emails and wished I too could be hanging out knitting with my crew. So finally I contacted I Knit London (formerly Stitch and Bitch) to see if I could start an East London chapter. And hurrah, they are all for it! So to not waste any more time, I have decided to start on that special leapy day Wednesday 29th February at my local The Rose and Crown, Hoe Street, Walthamstow, where all are welcome, knitters, crochet-ers, yarn hookers, cross-stitches, all, whether wanting to learn or being a pro, to knit and stitch and be sociable. I am always happy to teach and hopefully eventually we will have a large enough group to encourage more people to take up hooks. So every fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7pm, we will be there. Please join, pass it on, and come out and stitch with me!!

great food packaging in my local shop…

great food packaging in my local shop…

Two of these I’m afraid are of the “what were they thinking about” kind of packaging that makes us giggle at Twat chocolate and Fanny face cream, whereas the tins of tomatoes, I actually really liked them as they looked kinda Orla Kiely, kinda Skandi 70s. So what made me giggle on the packaging of the poppadoms was the mad looking rabbit, definitely not in my book an advertisement for anything yummy… and as for brain masala, well, there are days my brain feels like masala but I wouldn’t try to sell it!

Anyway I am sure it will all make a lovely curry together and as soon as my back feels good enough to allow me to stand up for long enough to cook one we shall have a lovely (veggie) brainy curry

A bit of Create Place lovin’

A bit of Create Place lovin’

I have had the pleasure to be involved with the Create Place in Bethnal Green for just over a year and wanted do a blogging virtual shout out to them. So hereby. The Create Place is a wonderful creative space on Old Ford Road, near the tube and overground and right next to the ace Gallery Cafe. The run a fantastic selection of classes there, from creative writing to beginners sewing, cupcake decorating to quilting. There are knitting drop ins and free daytime classes, there is a little shop selling locally made designer handmade goodies, and there is always a pot of tea on the go.


It is run by the lovely Lisa. She didn’t just bring her amazing stash of Kaffe Fassett fabrics but also bags of enthusiasm, knowledge and sheer love for the place. She knits, she blogs, she rollerskates, she rocks. The Create Place is friendly and local, and every learner and teacher is instantly made to feel very welcome and involved. I love the place dearly and am glad to see it go from strength to strength. And to top it off there is a selection of handmade designer goodies on sale! Their website is here: www.thecreateplace.co.uk and their full listing and bookings are here: http://bookwhen.com/nghzv


We have few places left on the next beginners sewing class on 29th January and just one on the popular one day quilting class on 5th February. Get in quick before they fill up! – Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
