I’ve spent most of the day battling with a SketchUp model – all urves and gently sloping banks. Looks great very challenging. I came across this great tip on how to select edges using the eraser tool – very quick and convenient when compared to clicking every line separately.
Choose the eraser tool, and start dragging along the edges you want to select. Done? WAIT!! Don’t release that mouse button yet! Right click any of the edges you selected (while still holding down the left mouse button [and make sure you’re right clicking an edge, not a face]). The context menu will pop up. Move the mouse away from the menu, and you can now saftely release the left mouse button. Press Esc to close the context menu and…Volia! Your edges are still selected!

It’s my birthday today, and I think I just got the present that can’t be beaten from one of my clients. Grinning to myself now! Instilling confidence in people is something that I see as a part of my job – it’s not just about sitting on a computer, making phone calls and organising things but making sure that my clients are empowered to do their job too.
Olafur Eliasson has installed a riverbed in a Louisiana museum. Read more on Designboom.
Another client, another of their dogs, nabbing the best spot in the garden!
A friend posted a picture of this place on Facebook and I had to find out more. Check out this link for some more photos.
My client’s dog, sleeping in this position on the kitchen floor. What the photo doesn’t capture is the fact that he’s also snoring!
Today I’m planting up two gardens for the show homes at the new development by London Square in Fulham, which have been designed by Jo Thompson. The site is huge and requires “three point” safety wear – head, high-vis jacket and steel toe cap boots. It’s my first time of being in very hot weather with short hair, and whilst the breeze over my neck is good, the fact it leaves it exposed to potentially burn to a crisp isn’t so much, so a long-sleeved t-shirt was employed to offer a bit more protection than the SPF20 could on its own!
Attached to this crane is a plastic container with all the plants that I don’t have to carry through the house! The perks of being one of (or the?!) only girl on a building site!
Ever wondered how to keep your kettle safe and dry during the Chelsea build when the rain starts coming down…?
Just finished planting a roof terrace for a bachelor in Belsize Park. A few months and it should give him a lush and green place to relax in the summer months.
