MADE Craft Fair Bloomsbury Part 2

Alexa Simone Cushions

I had only recently made new covers for our scatter cushions or I’d have been very tempted to buy some of these cushions by Alexa Simone.

Jane Sedgwick Beads



Jane Sedgwick’s stand reminded me of kindergarten and how satisfying it is to thread wooden beads .

Sally McGill’s delicate ceramics



Gorgeous delicate ceramics by Sally McGill. Alas, absolutely no room in our flat for any more.


The sweet smell of lavender


Delighted to smell lavender as we passed Prilly Lewis’s stand and so pleased my sense of smell is getting stronger all the time.

Didn’t realise that some mixtures of Herbes de Provence contain lavender leaves as well as savory, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and oregano, but of course, rosemary and lavender are closely related.

My I remind you If you email me at I will send you the first chapter of my memoir Woman in a White Coat, and if you comment I will send you another. Hope to hear from you.
