Day 131: Monday 7 September 2009

Another day, another late blog. Oh well.

As late as ‘it’ (the blog) is today’s picture brings to light  one of Newcastle’s anonymous yet incredible handi-craft talents. Whoever made this amazing piece of manchester deserves to win a major art prize. I’m not sure which prize is the most appropriate, but if I could make anything near as spectacular and gorgeous I’d put the jelly wax aside for good.

Top: Older than me (nearly) denim shirt

Now I can sleep in the nude (my preferred state in bed) in a top, bottom and accessory in the form of this amazing Newcastle charity shop find (thanks to the eagle eyes of HRH). Yes! Somebody has sewn a doona cover from a bunch of old jeans. In some places the have sewn on extra pockets to create visual interest, and boy am I interested! Here’s a better view of the bed spread…
