The weather down here in the very South of England has been crazy lately ... warm sunshine one moment, freezing cold winds the next. So, as mad as this may sound, we have been lighting fires to snuggle round. At least this gives me the chance to take time out to admire the gorgeous rug I commissioned from Jason Collingwood at last year's Origin Contemporary Craft Fair. Jason and I will both be exhibiting again at this year's fair from 22-28 September 2011 at Old Spitalfield's Market, London E1 6EW (see the exhibitors list at for full details).
