London Fashion Week

Didn't want you all to think I'd been lazy. I've been busy stitching for the window of Start London. I'll be posting some sneak peeks soon. As well as lot of familiar faces there'll be a lot of new characters too.

This project is doubly exciting because not only is it a really cool job but Brix Smith-Start who co-owns Start and initiated the project is the same Brix Smith who was in The Fall - one of my favourite bands of all time - and a thoroughly lovely lady.

Whilst staying at friend's I was requested to make a tweed cover for a Stratocaster. My friend is in a bluegrass band normally playing a banjo but also wants to play his electric guitar occasionally. He felt it was a bit too rock'n'roll and wanted it to be a bit more "geography teacher". I must add I didn't have my trusty equipment with me so this is the best I could come up with.

Egg-gagement! (Sorry!)

Last month I had a request from Dan from Trap 5 after he'd seen the fried egg I made for Mr Burgerman to make another one for him to propose to his girlfriend, Liz, with. It was complete with a ribbon to attach the ring to. I was happy to hear Liz said "yes". Well, who could resist an egg-based proposal. What next? Maybe a felt wedding cake.
