Jam sandwiches...

I was flicking through some old note books and I stumble across a list I had written about a year ago and it made me laugh so hard I just had to share it with you all.

So here is my list of things that I could fit a jam sandwich in:

1. VCR - of course
2. Betamax player _ I saw one of these in a museum a while ago and if i had had a sandwich on me, it would have been right in there!
3.CD driver - although you would need to cut the sandwich into a circle and quash it down, it would be worth it though
4. Washing Machine - jam doesn't wash out
5. glove box - "oh no I'm lost, dam i will have to check the map it in the glove box...oh god! there is a sandwich in here...ew..."
6. The space behind radiators - you have got to love the smell of warm jam
7. Dvd cases - all of them...
by ideas for things I can add would be well receive

I think i should probably explain where this idea come from, when i was a child my parents fitted a guard to the VCR in an attempt to stop me putting things into it, like jam sandwiches. There was only one massive floor in this plan, I had never even considered putting things in the VCR until the guard was put on and since then I haven't been able to get the idea out of my head. I am 20 years old and still this plays on my mind...

A male textiles student

looking over my blog, I notice a distinct lack of wordage and opinion, I was then shocked to find that wordage is a real word. So I thought, its about time I added my views on art and life to the world of fact-less opinion floating around the interwebz.

So here we go with my wondering for the day;
why is it that telling people that I am a textiles student still gets such an uncomfortable responses? Well that or a knowing look and nod, followed by"Oh.....a textiles student."

Right so just to set the record straight (sorry for the pun), textiles student is not a euphemism, I am in-fact straight but I also didn't just take this course to hit on women, although there are worse things than being in a class with 30 women... but that isn't the point. thirdly I don't study fashion or have any idea how to make or design clothes. There is far more to my chosen subject than fashion and i don't just mean curtains!

To conclude I like textiles as a medium it suits how I work. Textiles and fashion are different and if you ask stupid questions you will get stupid answers. Thank you and good night

The mystery New Jesery knitter I am very impressed! When looking for info on knitting i come across this article, admittedly is a couple of months and it was in the metro but still it made me smile

Since my last post about the wonder which is graffiti knitting I have become totally obsessed... If i keep but my current rate of work the whole of Norwich will be covered by the end of the month.

Oh yeah i will soon be back in Leicester so expect to see more knitting there too.

Designs from a bored wood pusher

A while ago I was set a project at uni with the exciting title "stripes and checks." and of course me being the creative thinker I am... managed to link my work back to skateboarding, oh yes it was hard but I did it so here are just a couple of the pieces I came up with;

these were both inspired by road markings and the mistakes and that are made when painting them
