Berlin - A Vegan Glimpse



For my birthday Dixon took me to Berlin! I've wanted to go to Berlin for A LONG time so I was super excited to go. The first thing we ALWAYS do before visiting a new city, we headed over to Happy Cow to do some vegan food research annnnnnd there were so many choices we could hardly choose. You will be hard pressed to be hard pressed for vegan food in Berlin. Most place had vegan options on the menu. Soooo this is in no way a "guide" but more a skim on the surface of the places we had chance to visit.

Helping out at the Weaving Workshop // Stitch-Up, Leeds


Last weekend I leant a helping hand to Lucy Beggs in her weaving workshop organised by Stitch-Up, held in their wonderful new workshop space right over there even more wonderful shop in Thorntons Arcade in the centre of Leeds.

I had a run through of the weaving process with Lucy a week ahead of the workshop, she taught me the ways of the looms, to know my rya from my pile weave. Lucy was a GREAT teacher; showing thrifty techniques to get yourself weaving without wincing at the cost! Giving amazing tips like using ready made frames and drift-wood hangers scavenged from beaches. Annnnddddd, it is safe to say I am absolutely hooked on weaving.
