Beautiful Things

Yesterday I went to see another Double Feature by Matthew, this time there was a sad story featuring a giant robot cat abduction, and a string quartet to accompany it. Loads of people came to see it - there really should be puppet theatre projected onto buildings all the time at night. No photos, but I hope he'll post a video soon.

Then I got a parcel from Austria full of lovely fabric scraps and buttons, I'll make something from them very soon...

At the moment I'm busy rearranging my room, now that all the studio stuff is gone I have loads of space for things like books and myself and tea pots. I've spent all day moving and dusting things, and it's beginning to look good. Inbetween-times I kept going to our neighborhood clothes shop and eyeing this handbag...

I really really want it. Even though it's impractically made of silk and obviously wants to be owned by a tidy person who has a car to keep it safe and won't drag it around sticky public transport. I only buy sturdy bags that like to travel on trains. But look, it looks like a knitted alien might spring from it and do a dance and spew out pretty portions of raspberry jelly for everybody...

Oh do buy the bag, it is so you and minds me of your shoes the red ones, lovely red and green combinations like apple trees and Dorothy on her yellow brick road journeys..
