We took a trip to the degree shows in town yesterday, a Fathers day outing with two very tired boys after sleepovers on saturday night. The textiles shows are always really inspiring and I love the photography and animation,there were some stands that particularly stood out, a girl who had embroidered Tim Burton style childrens books was popular as well as a forties homemaker project with recipe cushions and lovely embroidered fabrics.
My favourite was a photographic display made up of mini works of art inside slide cases, some of the little pics were from the seventies,random people,holiday snaps...brilliant!!!.

Best bit though was discovering how to use the find music app on my phone and being introduced to the delights of Daktaris 'Clarence the Cross Eyed Lion' which is now the Teawagon theme tune!! (hope you approve Jane)x
