2015 Diary Dates

plush fibreMy 2015 diary is already filling up and I wanted to share a couple of events with you. The first is a brand new show in Coventry in March*, called p – Lush, it’s a celebration of everything Alpaca. Organised by a lovely group of ladies – just take a look at their twitter or facebook – their humour and enthusiasm just shines through in every post.  This is going to be one event I shall find it hard to miss.

I pasted below a couple of extracts from their press release to whet your appetite

The shows covers fibre art, luxury creations that speak to you, materials and products to make beautiful things, knit, crochet and textile design, upcycling and making. 

This is no ordinary show. It’s a chance to share your designs and products, celebrate and showcase the skills that allow you to make delicious things for the people you love: products that are soft and warm and inviting – designs that are cute and clever. p-LUSH is a celebration of the slow art industry and connecting designers: share what you love with the world, Sit-n-Knit/Hook-a-Bit to pass on the skills and wisdom that define your unique work. Think alpacas and fibres, inflatable sofas and handmade, innovation and indulgence. The p-LUSH Show has it all.

There will also be workshops and 300+ alpacas showcased in the central arena. 

If you are interested in exhibiting, you can contact the organisers for booking information via their website where you’ll also find full details of exhibitors, location, tickets etc. I’ll be posting more event details over the next few weeks. As we begin the mad rush in to Christmas preparations and shopping madness (I try, but it can’t be avoided so I embrace it!) it’s good to know that a celebration of all things “slow” is there to look forward to. In fact, I’ve sent a link to advance ticket info to Mr T in the hope that I may find a little treat under the tree – why not do the same and come with me!

Follow p-LUSH on twitter  or  facebook  for all the latest news.

*p-LUSH runs 27th and 28th March 2015 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry as part of the British Alpaca Futurity event.

  • The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!
#girlgardener #edibleflowers #slowliving #foraging #permaculture #countrywisdom #mygardenrightnow Throwback . Taken on a visit to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire a couple of weeks ago. Can you read that  card? A valet to whiten your converse! Brought back memories of  whitening my Dunlop green flash in the 70's!!!
#chatsworth #converseallstars #conversetrainers Strange sky tonight. Common hogweed. Even the weeds look beautiful in the sunshine today. The flowers and  stems of this one are destined for the dye pot. There are lots of varieties of hogweed, if in doubt don't touch - the sap is highly irritant, even poisonous in some. 
#hogweed #foraging #ecodye #permaculture  #naturaldye #slowliving #bakingandmaking Everyone loves elderflowers - even the cockchafers (maybugs). Last night we sat in the garden drinking the first batch of elderflower champagne, watching the bats & the moths and listening to a blackbird serenading us. The hedgerows are full of elderflowers & champagne is easy to make (easier than cordial), if you have white wine vinegar, lemons & sugar. Click on the link in my bio and type "elderflower champagne" in the search bar.
