Snapshots from a field trip to Studio Spécialités in Little Italy - where it's Christmas all year 'round and you can buy a giant fake cauliflower for 150$... and so much more. The fake food cart was by far my favorite, and there are enough Christmas trees to blow your mind. The window display people all get their goods here, and they supply the snow for the Ogilvy's traditional Christmas window display.
|You all know I love fake cakes.|

Just a couple of snapshots my table/end of year display at last week's vernissage - oh yes, and the famous cake hat that I knitted and hand-sewed. A lot of people tried this on over the course of the evening (including the director of my school) so there are certainly a few more pictures of it floating out there that I haven't seen yet.
You can see a bit of the "icing-flowers" reflected in the mirror at the back.

Some more pattern experiments from the past couple of weeks (click to make bigger).
Tonight is also the end of year show at the Centre des Textiles Contemporains - I've got some work set up there, and will be showing visitors around the school throughout the evening. Everyone is welcome, and the show 'Passage Haptique' is up until June 13th. My and my fellow textile students' work will shown until June 2nd... then it will be our turn in one year to show our final projects!

From this newly discovered website - confirmation that cats have changed very little 700 years. I guess you could say this article is like the medieval equivalent of a funny cat Youtube video.
Bartholomaeus Anglicus: [13th century CE] (De proprietatibus rerum, book 18): He is a full lecherous beast in youth, swift, pliant, and merry, and leapeth and reseth on everything that is to fore him: and is led by a straw, and playeth therewith: and is a right heavy beast in age and full sleepy, and lieth slyly in wait for mice: and is aware where they be more by smell than by sight, and hunteth and reseth on them in privy places: and when he taketh a mouse, he playeth therewith, and eateth him after the play.
