Multi faceted Brisbane identity and designer – K.T. Doyle is ‘away with the denims’, these days. Her JeanBag© is a recycled homewares product born of opportunity, wit and support by the Brisbane City Council. Her ongoing creative enterprise is documented in her wordpress blog – click here. We dropped off a small parcel of denim today and this lovely card awaited us. Go and read about her product and if you have spare denim to donate for a great cause, email her at <firstname.lastname@example.org>

mal E returned home safe today from two weeks work on our shop and residence at Tunbridge, Tasmania Friday, Aug 2 2013
Our American friend and master carpenter, Kim Vagt and mal E powered on for 10 days straight – achieving great pressured results upstairs and downstairs. We prepared the ground and briefed Greg Edwards to create a replacement Georgian internal staircase to the exact proportions, to be repositioned exactly where the original one stood. We also contacted our original sparky to visit and plan the final stages of electrical installations to the building. A wide pano of the shop room has been uploaded to malE’s viewersite on Tumblr and can be downloaded – here.

Two shots of John Waterman just before he passed away, April 2002 Sunday, Jun 16 2013
His last 8 tracks come up on my iTunes ‘shuffle’ lots, his set of French copper saucepans are used every day. His last gift to me was a London printer’s coded contacts diary with every possible detail about sourcing, pricing and storage of metal, ink, paper and tools of the trade. He is still in our lives, daily . . . there is not a week goes by where an internet search for John collides with our viewer site
