Yesterday I spent the whole day at the screen printing studio. It was just the best day ever. I love making prints; the smell, the noise, the organisation, the process, the chemistry - all of it! It's nearly as good a remedy as running. I wasn't very prepared and it was raining so heavily that the photocopy of the image I was going to expose, got damaged and I had to go back to the copy shop, which meant I was late and had to settle for the worst of the screen beds. I'm sure that screen bed is made for a giant, it's so difficult to maneuver on my own, I had to hold back a few tantrums but managed to get the hang of it in the end, along with a few bruises. The prints are on sale here. They feature my favourite street in Luxembourg - Rue du Nord.
Today I'm off to for a swim in the rain, then heading in to town to buy some yarn for some crocheted baskets I might be making for a shop here in the UK - I'll post more about it later. I feel like I'm finally getting back into my lovely routine, which is so great.

I know I've been terrible at posting lately. I've had a lot of things going on in my personal life and somehow all my old little routines, such as posting on this blog, have been difficult to get back in to. I'm slowly getting there though. And it helps that the sun is finally shining in London, I've been to the lido a few times and did my first 10k run on the weekend! Exercise really is the best remedy.
I'll be hosting the craft morning at The Create Place tomorrow from 10-12am. Hoping to see a couple of familiar faces there :)

I've been meaning to post the photos, from the Designer's Market at the Konrad Café, for ages, but it has taken me a while to get back into my London routine again. The designer's market was really lovely and laid back, I hope there are more to come.
I thought I had taken more pictures of the other designer's stands, but I must have forgotten. Next time I will.
Thanks again to my sister for helping me out :)

Except for a couple of days, the weather has been amazing here while I've been in Luxembourg. On Monday it was nearly 30 degrees, so me and two good friends from school, drove up to a lake in the North of the Country. It's absolutely beautiful up there and it made me realise how much I miss having nature like this at my doorstep. But then I remind myself of all the other things London has to offer, I'll just have to visit Luxembourg more often...
