studio goings-on

Our new studio mate, Elissa Elwick has just blogged about WHAT IT'S LIKE working in the same space as Gary Northfield and me.

It must be quite traumatising, actually. You can see photos of her desk set up over on her blog.

And look at this lovely new Sea Monkey! Knitted specially by amazing writer Gillian Cross. (There's a free pattern on my website if you'd like to make one!) Gillian just happened to be the chair of the CWIG committee when I joined it (yes, there IS a CWIG-Seawig connection). Gillian was very strict about keeping to the minutes and such, so at first I was a little bit scared of her! But I got to know her more, she's wonderful.

And I'm really excited to read her new brand-new book, After Tomorrow, about our society, where all the banks have collapsed, and the main characters' only hope of escape is through the Channel Tunnel. Gritty dystopian stuff, you can find out more about it on Gilian's website and over at Bookbuzz.

What a fabulous sea-monkey, and knitted by Gillian Cross, no less! I have quite a collection of her books that I managed to pounce on (no mean feat in Western Australia, you had to really hunt) when I was in Primary School. Mind currently blown. So is my mother's mind – she knits a lot. I do not do much in the way of knitting, but I do do needle felting, and to practice figures have been needle felting Iris, because seamonkeys are getting all the love and she has far more fabulous hair than them. Hopefully I will be able to finish it soon, so you can see – I'm currently hampered by the fact that my mother has snaffled my book to read to her year 3s (I am informed that they are all completely enthralled, first book she's been able to get them to sit still on the mat for all year! =)).
