paris me manque


not a frech artist but seu jorge's plinkyplinky strum fun (technical music term) reminds me of the paris good times. i'm a die hard wes anderson fan and seu came to my attention with his brazilian david bowie covers in the life aquatic.
"oh that's how he got willem dafoe and bill murray in his low-budget music video" i hear you cry.

may the force be with you, and you and you and ba ba ba!

for anyone who was in any doubt, i am an out and out geek. i'm in a star wars state of mind this week. kicking things off with my own work; a knitted hat set for mum, dad and baby.

felted baby yoda hat

and what's a star wars family without an at-at dog?

bones mello, the at-at dog

and to finish things off in a tidy orderly fashion, i came across this beautifully designed star wars font from the curious brain.

your eyes lie

Flying Paper Pendant

Flamethrower Ring
Beehive Ring

in the frenchman's case it was his mouth that lied, he also scratched the back of his head at the same time, it's a wonder he played poker so well. i came across this wonderfully original jewellery by your eyes lie. these are my personal highlights. the lighter ring is something i've never seen before, i think it's a really clever idea. imagine if it worked, that would save the handbag rummage/pocket pat-down, it would also burn your finger. oh well, no pain no gain.

creative cleverness

this was found at the bottom of my inspiration folder. not sure where it came from so haven't been able to credit it but if you're reading this, which, let's be fair, is unlikely; well done, good job, back pat.

this kitty remains terribly austere in his cat beret. to make your very own cat beret you can find the pattern here.

home is where the heart is


my friends are on the move. i designed and made these cut stitched map cards to welcome them to their new homes.

soft-wear crown

for the software king. i made this for my friend simon who was a massive help with getting the insides of my computer all shiny and new.
