Randomness part 2

Well, it's certainly been an interesting few weeks...I turned 30, I moved house and am now in the midst of trying to set up in business with a friend with whom I've worked for several years.  It's proving to be much harder than first expected but also strangely satisfying (and more than just a little scary).  I guess anything worth having needs to be worked for...

And finally, for my back-tack lurker....(sorry for the delay, I only just noticed you left me a message in the comments section)

what is your favorite fruit?
a bit boring, but it's a toss-up between either an apple or a kiwifruit.

what is your favorite shape? (could be 3d or 2d)
"organic" shapes generally, but circular/spherical or rectangular with rounded corners. 

who is your style icon?
ok, this is tough.  I need more time, let me think...in no particular order: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Marc Jacobs, Miuccia Prada, Francis Bacon, Helmut Lang, Paul Rand, Richard May, Stella McCartney.  There are probably a million more but these are the ones that spring to mind when pushed to give an answer.

what is the most indespensible item in any self respecting craftster's kit?
indispensable craft items for me are scissors, tape measure and needles.

are there any colours you particuarly dislike?
whilst I can't think offhand of any colour I particularly hate, I do generally prefer muted/"off"/weird colours.  The photographs in the current Prada women's ad campaign are a good example of the kind of colours I mean.

where were you born?
I was born in a place called Ashington in the north of England.  But now I live in London.

Mmmm Some beautiful, intriguing images. I love the way you have mixed textures, including fabrics, in the knitted pieces. gorgeous draping.

The package is in the mail (although now I wish I'd found some other things to add).
have fun with it!

Once upon a time I did have links to photo albums here, but I thought I'd be clever and mess with the template design. This in short, means it will require a considerable amount of messing about to restpre them. In the meantime, I thought I'd just post the links here.

I should also mention that they need to be updated...eventually.

Looking forward to see what you send.

Mmmm wow I am so right with you there with some of your comments! (I am so in love with my Helmut Lang boots!)
I's love to see more of your work, when you find a breather in your new adventures to post some pics of whatever it is you design/create.
I'm quite excited- I hope you will find the items I'm sending you inspiring!
