Sausages for everybody!



What C did not specify in the post below is how many sausages. There were six of us who did the class together. We made two types - traditional and Italian. This is half of what the six of us made. It equals EIGHT kilos. Eight kilos of sausage in the fridge... is .... half... of the total we all brought home.

Luckily Mike had his party last night and we forced everyone to eat sausages. That did about four kilos in. Sausage dinner party anyone?

Sausages

L and I attended one of the Ginger Pig's sausage-making classes on Thursday night. She proved to be particularly good at linking up the sausages as you'll see below.

Art Wall

In every city and apartment that I've lived, I've always had a vision of one wall dedicated entirely to art, picture upon picture hung much like the Paris Salon.

Here in London, L and I are still working on that goal but we're pretty close. Photos were snapped on my phone, so there are some odd angles and exposure. Sorry about that.


Our main wall as it stands right now



On the far left hand side is this print by the awesomely talented Brian Taylor. It lives on clips inside of a frame I found by the garbage cans.



A limited edition print by Sanjay Patel, who is all kinds of awesome. You may have seen his "Little Book of Hindu Deities".



Heh. A Wodehousian take on a very, very popular (really, it's everywhere and I'm tired of it) British print.



A detail of a print we picked up from the Lyrics and Type show. See the full print.


More once it's all done! I'm expecting another couple of prints soon…

New Stamps

There are some new passport stamps over there on the left. That means L and I have been travelling and instead of blogging. More soon!
