Modern Baroque

I came across this blog full of beautiful rooms decorated and furnished in contemporary baroque patterns.

Barok n’ Roll Wallpaper by Emil Kozak

Designed by internationally acclaimed artist/skateboarder Emil Kozak, Barok n’ Roll wallpaperlooks cool at first glance but even better as you get up close to inspect the details. From a distance, Kozak’s design resembles your typical Baroque pattern. On careful inspection, however, you’ll see that each major detail in the design is unique.
This is what i am designing at the moment for the interiors of my playdens.

Knit and Crochet Club

In an attempt to get out more and stop hibernating i ventured into Knit club at Babahogs Cafe in Falmouth, held every Wednesday 7 - 10. Mum taught me to knit and crochet as a little girl and i have picked both of them up and put them back down again over my nearly 40 years of making and doing but i do prefer crocheting.
I bought a fantastic book that teaches loads of stitches and encourages you to create your own patterns called Beyond the square, Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman
There are some fantastic websites that offer free crochet patterns
These are my recent creations.A lonely lovebird...i will make her a loverman
