Easter Cards

I took the morning off 'proper work' to list my new easter cards in my online shops. Thats the joy of being freelance, so I hope it pays off. Still, I enjoyed myself, now back to my designs. I'm working on summer for 2010, some girls wear, using embroidery and mixed media.

Owl stand

As owls are my favourite I was pleased to find this one in our cottage at the weekend. My Gran had the exact same one in her kitchen, I'm sure of it!

Blissful break

Well the weekend away lived up to all expectations. The view from my room was of the Cobb (a harbour wall made famous in novels by Cornish writer Daphne du Maurier and in John Fowles French Lieutenants Woman) and little harbour dotted with fishing boats. Lyme is full of charity shops to browse around and the beach makes for perfect walking and sketching. There are plenty of craft places too all very inspiring!

Hen weekend!

I'm off for two nights away to sunny Lyme Regis. I will be taking my sketch book and water colours, and having a nice restful time. There may be a drink or two as it is a hen weekend, but I don't think it will be the kind we have here in Brighton with devils ears and strippers!

The bride to be is Lara who was recently featured in Sew hip magazine, she was spotted by print and pattern and featured on there last week..... Well done Lara!!! that's 2 reasons to celebrate.

Folksy shop

Well after a little cyber convo with Tara I have now opened up a kitty stitch shop at folksy!! Yeay, lets hear it for this side of the pond! Gosh, I really should be doing my proper textile designs and Ive got totally side tracked with banners and listings. Now I really must get back to work. It is nice to have a little shop and if I want it to work I know I will have to put more effort into it. However at the moment I'm putting effort into designs so I really must get on!

Paisley egg cup

This has to be my favourite egg cup in our house, I don't use it often for fear of breaking it with my butter fingers! Its just a perfect example of the 1950s style that I love.

new owl

Ive been busy doing textile designs so have been unable to post. Im working on girls wear, a mono chrome group. Just thought I'd share this gorgeous owl, I found her in a friends house. If you look inside her there is a baby owl too. Very sweet.
