Recent jaunt to London

Among many reasons to visit the big smoke last month was…THE LAUNCH OF THE EXCLUSIVE HELLO KITTY RANGE AT LIBERTY! Oh yes, that deserved to be shouted. I splashed out big time and bought a half a metre of Hello Kitty fabric, it’s a beaut:

Just going to take it out and look at it every now and then.

The other thing that equally impressed me was the biggest Hello Kitty I’d ever seen in my life. That is indeed a fully-grown person stood to the right of it, how did it even fit in the lift??

Other things of interest in the capital that I went to see were ‘The Power of Making’ exhibition at The V&A and of course a visit to the taxidermy next door at The Natural History Museum.

At the V&A exhibition, they had a great selection of manufactured and carefully crafted hand made goods – including an impressive array of 3D printers with video footage of models being made using them.

A personal favourite was Shauna Richardsons ‘Crochetdermy bear’. A life size model of a brown bear entirely crocheted, totally fantastic!

 Just a hop skip away were some equally fantastic once-real animals. One of my favourites being the antelope creature to the right…I just can’t shake the feeling that he may have gone to the same dentist as me.
