Well, yet again, I’ve gone too long without blogging, but when you hear why you’ll forgive me. CecilyMae has relocated and is absolutely loving living in Leicester! Yes, Leicester. It’s so much fun up here with loads of arty crafty things going on and I have the studio I’ve always wanted…..
The first finished item out of the blocks was a quilt and book cushion commission for a very lucky little girl’s new nursery….
CecilyMae has also gone international this week with an article in Germany’s Landhaus Living magazine!
So that’s it for now…. promise to keep you updated more often. Hope the sun is as sunny wherever you are is it is here in lovely Leicester. I’m off to sit in the garden and enjoy the weather with the cats and a coffee…..
This seems to have happened very quickly. This was last week…
….and this was today…
It was glorious. Stanley and I sat and read in the sun aaaaaalllllllllll afternoon, until the sun went behind the neighbour’s tree and our feet and paws got a little bit nippy….
Let’s hope it stays for a bit. In other news, I built a boat. Well, sort of. It’s a land-going boat, but good enough for a 6 year old and a 3 year old who have their eye patches and cutlasses at the ready….
I was really proud to be asked to contribute to the Raising For Rana charity event happening in April as part of Fashion Revolution Day. It commemorates one year since the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh and the event aims to raise awareness and demand change and transparency in the fashion industry. Have a look at their website or donations can be made via this site….
Well, in case you didn’t already see, I’m now selling in Not On The High Street! And super excited about it I am too!

…then there’s the ‘Lollipop Flower’ range which has a fresh and happy collection of cards, prints and cushions….
….and finally a collection of prints, cards and cushions featuring a lovely pair of love birds nestling in a heart….
So, head over to Not On The High Street and grab yourself something lovely!
I was ever so excited to be approached by Reloved Magazine last year and asked to be a contributor for their February issue which is out now. It’s a fab magazine that features lots of designers and their work, and also loads of interesting and thrifty ways to update your home….check it out….
