It started at college; black sketchbooks, tied with ribbon, bursting with drawings, exhibition invites and doodles. Weighty books happily heaved onto my lap, pages thick with weaving and knitting samples. This blog replaces the sticky books up to a point. Christmas is a great opportunity to get out the PVA and clear the drawers of special bits and bobs. The book above is full of magazine clippings for our next house. No buyers yet, but we are still patient and optimistic.
