MMJ12 – St Ives Tate Goes Pop!

‘Come away for a few days,’ my parents said. ‘Cornwall. It’s lovely.’

At no point did they say to this hardened urbanite, ‘There will be no mobile phone signal and no Internet access.’

I don’t know whether to have a nervous breakdown or eat another pastie!

I’ll keep it succinct. Lisa kindly agreed to be photographed with me today in the Martin Creed white latex balloon installation at St Ives Tate. Wheeee! The installation is superb fun:

My Me Made Makes for today are the Tilly necklace that has seen lots of reincarnations in the blogging community and my Jane Brocket Chanel style bag, finished last night:

This bag is cute as a button and gorgeous to touch, my first make from The Gentle Art Of Knitting:

The handles for this bag were kindly supplied by Midnight Bettys. I’d recommend this bag as a make for absolute beginners and I’d recommend this make as a perfect gift for friends.

There’s so much more I want to share with you, but drizzle is about to kill my netbook and I really should be gazing at that beautiful Cornish view, enjoying the fact that I am torn from the workaday world of computers.

Later, guys!
