I have received a request for a photo of Smudge – star of so many of my blog posts in times gone by. Smudge and I considered the request and he agreed, as long as it was an action shot. As this is the closest he gets to action (note the tongue having a workout) it will have to suffice. As you can see, he still goes in for a bit of boxing – note shape of ears.



We had a rare day off on Saturday and went to an exhibition in Shaftesbury (Dorset) to see a good mix of artists, including Workshop on the Web’s own Amo House. It was a lovely show – I do enjoy the chance to see artists of different disciplines all exhibiting together. Loved the metal flowers.

Amo was showing some of her delicious fat books. You can see them on the front page of this site. They are real works of art. I also loved her ‘scrolls’ which were jumbo-sized spools with the most wonderfully decorated lengths of embroidery cascading down. That girl has some seriously good ideas.


After a spot of lunch we headed off to Myakka in Wincanton – a warehouse version of the ethical mail order furniture brand. Bought the little chap below. He looks really good in my ‘Moroccan’ hallway but I must get another table lamp, to fit the theme.

Well, there you are – a very personal blog with hardly a mention of the wow word.  I did find, with my last blog, that it was extremely useful to be able to look back on this sort of stuff. I hope you don’t mind putting up with it – back to art proper in the next edition.

    I love the look of your hallway – the cabinet/chest is beautiful. I also love Amo’s scrolls and always enjoy seeing Smudge.

    I had resolved to keep this blog ‘on topic’ for textiles only but that darn cat has many fans!
