I've folded Tomoko Fuse's Naval Shell a few times now using various papers, but I made this one using roller blind fabric. Diagrams are in her wonderful book "Spiral". I'll be teaching this at the BOS Spring Convention in Birmingham 14th-15th March See http://www.britishorigami.info/society/meetings/condata.php

I spotted this carrot with a smiley face in a bag of carrots at Sainsburys.

I had great fun in the sun on Sunday making Willow Obelisks with my friends - none of us had done any before, but we all finished in just over 2 hours. I need to leave mine out of the ground for a month or so to stop it rooting as it was freshly cut. I'm going to try making a place mat with the Cornus in my garden when I cut it back soon.

This is useful.
I love a good infographic—there's something so wonderful about an image that can take a seemingly intimidating and complicated choice, like selecting the right sewing machine needle, and turn...

I found this string of slugs eggs in the soil in a plant pot yesterday. How can something so beautiful turn into something so horrible? I dipped them in some water to wash the soil off and they shone in the sun. I laid them on a stone to photograph them, before I squashed them! I'd never seen eggs in a string like this before.

Cat B sitting 'inside' a very prickly plant (Fascicularia pitcairnifolia) in the garden today. The centre of each rosette turns intense scarlet and the flower is deep inside and a pale blue colour.

You can! It is an unusual plant though as it doesn't look particularly vicious until you touch it - the cat sits in the most uncomfortable places.

My first play from Assia Brill's fantastic book, "Curlique Kinetic Origami" with a random piece of paper and I noticed it went with the clothes I was wearing, so I made another spiralling in the opposite direction and turned them into a pair of earrings!

The new shop 'Locally Produced for You' in West Bridgford is stocking my Triple Helix Bracelets. All of the stock in the shop is locally produced and the owner, Kate, stocks work from over 30 makers.
The shop is in Central Avenue, West Bridgford upstairs from Hair Scene almost opposite Boots.

Our Sungold tomatoes are doing well this year. We have also grown Ferline as it was recommended to be blight resistant, but hopefully if this weather continues we won't have a problem this year.
