In late October I found a painted ceramic horse at Camberwell market with no backstory and he became my muse for trying out watercolours. He is elusive (more beautiful in the flesh).
Following on from my last post – he’s arrived and will soon be on his merry way through the post to his new baby-sized owner. (Thanks again to Lost & Found’s ‘Craftivity- 40 Projects for the DIY Lifestyle’ book.)
I hope this makes me an octopus.

My family made a book for my Mum’s birthday (one of those special numbers) and I did this drawing of her. I was happy with how the whole thing turned out – simple brown paper pockets to hold everyone’s contributions with a folded cardboard cover and a few stitches along the edge to bind it. I’m Itching to make more books now. I always like the impetus of a birthday to get something made. And look here, so many fancy stitches are possible!
