Meeting the Master of Grand Design

I've been a great fan of the TV show Grand Designs, (my favourite show), for quite a few years now, seeing each episode at least once. Over the weekend, I had the good fortune to meet the fabulous presenter Kevin Mcloud. He was presenting Grand Designs Live at our exhibition centre in Melbourne. There was an enormous reception for him, apparently per head of population his show is more popular here in Australia, than anywhere else in the world.


I have some more fabric journal pages from earlier journals, I'm working on one at present to go into my Etsy





I'll also have some hand made fabric cards in my etsy soon too


and jewellery - a button, a circle of metal from an old tin and some very tiny pieces of tin all set in resin


Thanks again for taking the time to visit and comment, I really do appreciate your kind words.

How exciting to meet Kevin McCloud - I love Grand Designs too. More gorgeous pages and that necklace with the pieces set in resin is wonderful.

It is a great show isn't it? Sometimes he seems quite acerbic but it looks like he was enjoying your company Ro! Lovely work - as always!

I love that piece of jewellery....I'd like to know how to work with resin. I must say we love Grand Designs here too. The people in the projects are brave and have vision don't you think?

I love his programmes too and last was just watching him build his own little hideaway in the woods near his home.
Still loving my Ro book as does everyone who sees it.

Beautiful journal pages, as always. Lucky you to actually meet Kevin, they are showing an Australian Grand Designs programme over here at the moment although with a different presenter - not quite the same!

Hi Ro, How lucky are you to meet Kevin McCloud! I love his program too, definitely my favourite. He did a great interview on ABC24 which I watched. Living in Sydney it was too late to get to Melbourne but I am curious about the new Australian program - do you know when it airs? ABC? I am stitching a jacket at the moment (boro/Jude Hill style) and I have used several of the small pieces I bought from you. Adds to the lovely colours, thanks.
