Street Food one of the pleasures of travel, something hot and fresh with all of the activity of the street free on the side. Khuddy Katori, just realised these would be the Indian equivalent of pie floater. Vegetarian lentil filled crunchy pockets in a creamy curry gravy. Bright flavours and tasty. #creativeartssafaris #streetfood #roadtrip #tourresearch

Pictures, pictures, pictures.

If they can't see your work, how do they know what you have to offer?

I've been trying for a while to find a quick way to show our newest work. Making a catalogue and putting it on Issuu just never seems to happen. Putting them on here is fine for the day but they get lost after a while....
trying Flikr
What do you think?
Just started loading, and can do it from my phone quickly. Yeh!
Unrelated but something we have really enjoyed watching is our lotus grow.
We bought seeds a few months ago,
you have to file them just right and they take off... only days from a shoot until they were climbing out of the bowl.
It said on the packet not to expect flowers the first year, I can only think they must be happy- we are

There are moments when you think you might be getting somewhere. Amongst builders rubble we have blockprint on the line, piles of work everywhere being checked and packef and a system of lists and clipboards to organize and track all the many areas of production. Cloth, indigo, blockprint, machine work, handstitch. So many, many details to keep account of AND I think we finally have a workable system. It is later in the day but I can sit and stitch for a moment . What a wonderful moment. #thestitchingproject #socialenterprise #handmadeluxury #peace #shanti
