Progress... 
 
 
When you've got work to do on a sunny London Sunday, you at least deserve some treats.  Right?

Ricotta and WELL salted tomatoes. Damn good!

Kwonggi Mountain coffee. Quite a mouthful in both name and taste. Not bad at all, but I must admit I prefer the local Union Hand-Roasted!

And a beautiful hand-made cup to serve it in. Why not eh!

 

Proof.

Cliché perhaps, but who doesn't love a colourful sunset?
 
 
Purely because their discovery made me smile.  Photos from the 2007 archive. At least the Puma/Alexander McQueen footwear collaboration was on good form!

Progress on the 100% handsewn.  Worn at least 5 days a week for 6 months.  No washing.  Loving the character of the Isko selvage denim, and the way the handstitching is embedding itself into the fabric.  Looking forward to the next 6 months.  Bring on spring!

Things they probably won't teach you at fashion school #596... handsewing a button-hole.  After hours... days... of trial and sometimes tragic error, the backyard handsewn keyhole button-hole was born.   Each one unique, always evolving.  Wabi-sabi?
