13. Napkin Diary For November 2014


Friday, 14th November

David Let’s-Be-Clear-About-This Cameron was reading a speech on Breakfast this morning. At the bottom of the screen it said ‘The Right Honourable David Cameron’. The same clip was shown a while later, but this time the Right Honourable bit was left out.

Right: Just. In accordance with truth and duty. True. Correct.

Honourable: To have a sense of what is right or due. To have integrity.


Changing the subject completely, my two talented blog hop nominees have now hopped!

You can check out Richard, here, and Giova, here.


New Readers:

I like to make art from stuff nobody else wants. Stuff from the bin. Stuff with a secret history.

I absolutely never cut up books which could otherwise be read, or clothes which could otherwise be worn. Nor, do I erase the blemishes left by life. I cherish life’s blemishes.

A few years back, I bought six vintage linen napkins in a charity shop, for the meagre sum of two pounds. So far, I have turned three of my napkins into sewn diaries, using fast food leaflets, old magazines and books.

Each of my napkins represents a month, with a different entry for each day. For example, the day Lynda Bellingham died, I added the Oxo box from my kitchen cupboard.

November is my fourth napkin this year, the others are June , May and October. Some of them can be found in my shop.
