what an exciting week!
I’m in this month’s issue of Your Home & Garden magazine….. and it’s the September Issue!
They’ve published some of my knitting patterns, and I was asked to choose ten of my favourite things to photograph. Here’s a little taste of the lovely photos that were taken at my house.
We are so lucky to have such a beautiful magazine in our little country. Here’s a link if you’d like to subscribe.
That’s my dining room above, with 1940’s Australian sideboard and my dining table designed by Mark Mack, Los Angeles architect and our former neighbor on the Venice Canals, where we lived for a year or so. When we left there to live in Santa Monica, he designed the table for us and in return we gave him and his family our old Hiawatha-style canoe that we wouldn’t be needing any more since were moving to a regular street. Hard to believe you can have a canoe parked outside your house in a city like Los Angeles, but it has many secrets that are not obvious to those who rush from the airport to Disneyland. The best thing about having the table built was choosing the colour. It’s orange, my favourite. The shape is inspired by school cafeteria tables, complete with horizontal bar underneath to put your feet on, and the top is made of layers of plywood.
That’s my mum’s old glass jug filled with tulips. It has a gold rim and two flying geese on one side.
Below is the photo they took of me, knitting guru? No that is not a swift on my head. It’s the light over the dining table.
I’ve mentioned my David’s patience when it comes to craft projects littering the house. Well, here’s what I have to put up with. Multitudes of guitars. Not much of a trade, really, is it? They are so beautiful, if he asked me I would agree to hanging them on the wall. So far, not a peep.
