Chiaki Creates - Taking StockI love Meet Me At Mike’s. Pip is such an inspiring, super creative woman and every time I pop over to her blog I’m instantly motivated. Her Taking Stock posts always put a huge smile on my face so I figured I’d give writing one myself a go.

Enjoying: being alive and well and happy.
Listening: to Pink Floyd, The Doors and Bob Dylan while I’m sewing and drawing.
Wearing: my handmade vintage 60s floral fabric skirts and yellow Sandgrens Milan clogs.
Making: loads of happy cushions and a new line of products.
Cooking: Ottolenghi recipes.
Drinking: jasmine green tea and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Feeling: like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.
Reading: The Summer of the Ubume by Natsuhiko Kyogoku & The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
Looking: forward to seeing Derren Brown live next month.
Wishing: there was more time in a day.
Liking: long strolls on Hampstead Heath.
Waiting: for theatre tickets to Hamlet starring Benedict Cumberbatch to go on sale.
