Update

What’s going on. The latest news about Be In The Place.

I spent the entire weekend cleaning my house as the photographer from Tonbridge Courier was coming on Monday to take a picture of me. But it all turned out not to be necessary as we went straight out into the garden for the photo. And then, after all that, they didn’t put a photo in at all! Oh well – I’m probably glad as it was a really cheesy pose! (she forced me to hold my book up right to my face and grin like a mad thing). But the article was nicely written and it worked as John Adams bookshop sold out today! Yay!

I’ve also noticed that Amazon, Play and virtually all online bookshops have sold out too. I hope that’s a good sign :o) So if you’d like to buy it over the internet, I think Tescos website has the smallest waiting time listed (2 weeks). Or exclaim your astonishment if your nearest bookshop doesn’t have it and get them to order several copies immediately!!

The story of a crystal crafter – Blackbird Beauties
July 30, 2016
When I was little and often went to Cornwall in the Easter holidays, I would always look forward to going to a particular shop in Padstow that sold crystals and semi-precious stones (now a bag and shoe shop) and I still have the three that I bought with my pocket money! I can completely understand why Catherine Wilson of Blackbird Beauties describes herself as “crystal nuts”. I asked her more about this, her handcrafted items and how her business came about….
How to take close-up photos without a macro lens. (Plus pretty spring flowers)
April 13, 2016
I have three lenses for my Panasonic GM1, and none of them are macro. I don’t really want or need another lens at the moment, but I do want to try a bit of macro photography. The last time I had a macro lens was back in the day of my Minolta Dynax 500si  film camera, so it’s fair to say it’s been a while! I bought this pack of two extension tubes as I’d heard it’s a good alternative. One or both fit between your camera body and lens to give a macro effect, and this is how I got on…
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
green fairy wedding dress
How to make a woodland fairy wedding gown – The story behind the dress
September 21, 2017
If you’re new here, I should begin by saying that I make dresses for my business, Threads of a Fairytale. My husband, Chris and I had the photoshoot in mind before I even started making the dress, so I knew exactly what I wanted to begin with, which is fairly unusual for me! So the dress originated as a vintage pure silk Indian tunic that more-or-less fitted me. It’s a gorgeous mottled moss green pure silk fabric with lovely metallic dots – called Mukesh work – which give a beautiful shimmer in the light. Then I went round my various stashes of fabric round the house, gathering bits and pieces that would blend well with the colour…..
