I’m jumping on to Pip’s bandwagon, (and it’s a mighty crowded one), partly because I realised I had a clean shelf.
‘E’: purchased in London for 70 pounds. If anyone just fell over you’d fall further still if we talked shipping-to-Australia costs. Worth every penny to me – it’s my most loved something.
‘a’: one of five made by me with Grandad’s jigsaw, while hanging around endlessly waiting in Melbourne for the English Mr to decide whether I was the girl for him. Forget basket weaving. There’s therapy in typography.
Dinky-more-than-slightly-wonky-machine-felted-woollen-bowl-thing: containing two year old’s crayons for drawing exuberantly on house.
Craftapalooza apple pin cushion: I’m too busy looking at it to use it.
Eduardo Paolozzi plaster Empire State Building: art.
Thread: Another attempt at convincing bewildered family that craft supplies are not for packing away.
Oh, and these little gems purchased fifteen years ago from a dinky little store in New York. It’s just not about the stuff. It’s about the moment. A bit of past the stuff represents.
Pootle on over to Pip’s for a fun old snoop on everyone else’s shelves...
