Hot on the heels of his Chet Baker portrait Let's Get Lost, Bruce Weber's 2001 cine-scrapbook earns a re-issue, and serves to remind us why he is a photographer rather than a film-maker.

My sewing craze is continuing with zeal, even though after creating two dresses and two blouses (I know, respect) for various "lucky" children, I still seem unable to break through the mighty five-hour barrier. Frankly, I found running the London Marathon a swifter task. This week, after a stint which saw me still sewing at 2am, I was so exhausted the next day I actually managed to forget to bring our dog home from the morning school run. At 10.30am, there he was, poor thing, still tied up outside the school gates. Whoops. He only forgave me after a big toy-throwing session.

so, emboldened by Make Do and Mend, I am embarking on a summer of sewing. Make Do and Mend is a collection of Second World War instruction leaflets which have been bound into a handy hardback book (£9.99, Michael O'Mara books), and which gives tips on things such as how to darn a jumper, how to make slippers out of cardboard and bits of old carpet, and how to let out a frock. With the exhortations from Miss Sew and Sew, (the character featured in the leaflets) ringing in my ears "Each woman a Clothes Doctor", I popped into Woolworths.

Do you know your lock stitch from your chain stitch? Or a drop feed from a walking foot? If so, you are probably a practitioner of needlework – a hobby long derided as an activity enjoyed only by ladies of a certain age, but which is making a remarkable comeback.
