Bunnies and buttons

30 Jul

Proud to say we did our bit for Team GB down on the leafy, rural roads of Surrey this weekend. Great atmosphere, scorching weather and celebratory mood – even though it was just a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ glimpse of the Olympic cycling entourage.

My own Olympian challenge has been negotiating the London traffic up to Acton for a two week Christmas photo shoot. Almost finished, and I can’t say I’ll be sorry not to see another turkey until December.

At home I’ve been savouring the scarce few moments I’ve been able to spend with the little one. Story time is so precious, and we found an adorable book at the library on our last visit. The sweet illustrations come from children’s book Bunny Bunny Catkin by Cathy MacLennan {www.boxerbooks.com}. Love the contrast of the brown kraft paper with the colourful palettes of the acrylic painted characters.

I’ve also been working on a few of my own little creations, and one in particular for a friend’s spare room. When she came to me, we covered the usual ground in our discussions – birds, butterflies etc, and finally settled on another ‘B’ – buttons. This is just a roughed-out prototype, but with some downtime coming up, it’s on my list to do. Check back soon when I should have it all stitched up.
