Definitely much more exciting than it sounds! Some of my favourites from the new Quilts 1700 - 2010 exhibition at the V&A. Lots of inspiration for shapes as well as colour and pattern mixes and I loved the one made from tiny squares of silk ribbons. I managed to go to the press preview which was pretty civilised, I'm sure it's going to be a bit of a push and a shove now it's completely sold out! See my first attempt of a patchwork quilt in my earlier post here.

A few days holiday visiting friends by the sea, eating fish & chips at the launch of Rick Stein's new restaurant, documenting finds around the house, capturing the novelties of family life, hand-drawn scribbles and surfaces covered in stickers.

I loved this exhibition I saw recently at Camden Arts Centre - 'Sound of the Pregeometric Age' by Katja Stunz.
"An installation of machine-like, person-like, instrument-like sculptures from found objects such as Turkish ashtrays, cymbals and hotel reception bells. They test the limits of the space by both transmitting noise and attentively receiving it".

Artinavan// is an art collective of artists, writers, illustrators, photographers, musicians and designers, based in South London. Their group exhibitions explore a variety of subject matters and themes, expressing ideas through diverse media. For the Brixton Project, the collective has converted an empty shop in the Brixton Village Market into a weekly rotation installation space for 8 weeks during January - March.
I caught up with some of the guys when I was at the market for the patchwork quilt workshop a few weeks ago, and the space was filled with hand-painted signs made by the sellers within the market, with the aim of bringing together more of a community feel and offering glimpses of individual characters and personalities through type and imagery.
