Photo Shoot!

So, the main reason I've been so slack of late with my blogging and shop-updating has been because I've been busying myself writing a book.

It's a pattern book that comes out next year, and I've enjoyed creating it ever so much.

Yesterday we did the photo shoot for the book. It was a completely new experience for me and so much fun. I was really lucky that I was able to use friends to be in the photos and work on the make-up, so we all had a really relaxed (but long) and silly day.

I can't show you any photos as yet, but here's a pic of a small part of the amazing Dalston Heights where we did the shoot.

I'll keep you updated on the progress of the book. I'm ever so excited!

Olympic Joy

Today is the last day of the Olympics here in London. Hasn't it been a joy? I have to admit, I'm a little bit sad that it's over. This is especially ironic, as in the lead up, as a Londoner, I was desperate for it to be done. I don't think I'm alone in this change of heart, so very well done London and all our brilliant athletes. 29 golds! Who'd have thunk it..?

My change of feeling for the event started as I watched the Opening Ceremony. Magnificent (and bravo to all I know who were involved). As the many countries bore their flags around the stadium, I made myself a little Olympic memento - an Olympics' rings necklace, which I have very proudly worn.

Roll on the Paralympics!
