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.
Had to buy them!

Bought on 23rd July 2014 and still OK in my fridge in one of Lakeland's special green bags. I'll try to remember to take a photo one year on.

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...

Here's a selection of photos taken by Nigel at the Nottingham Knitting Show. There was a good buzz and quite a few younger visitors. I wish the walls weren't so green and the floor so yellow - trying to see the true colours or yarns and wires was impossible.

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!
