My studio is way up on the top floor of this block, my window is under the O and D of PLYWOOD. On my floor works Kim (see her work here) and Clare a talented costumier. On the other floors we have an interesting mix of artists, film makers, a carpenter and a seamstress. I feel really lucky to have such a great place to work - it makes me happy!

I was a little bit concerned when I saw this saluting mouse on the way to Winchelsea Summer Fair, for a second I thought it was a nazi salute, but on reading a nearby notice discovered that there were other 'scarecrows' dotted around the village to look out for - must be a tradition around these parts!

Yesterday we went to Bexhill, we've been going there for over twenty years now. There are quite a few charity shops around the town - I think we visited them all! There's a brilliant sewing shop there too that boasts two windows full of sewing machines old and new, made me feel a bit nostalgic for taking up sewing again. Above is a knitting needle gauge, I haven't seen a bell shaped one before -I'll add it to my collection.
