 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….

Wow….what a long time since my last blog!  Busy busy busy bees have been working away over here and there’s not been time to blog!  So here’s a quick round up of what’s been happening….

We’ve had two more features – one in Style at Home magazine, and one on the fabulous PrintPattern Blog – one of my all time favourite websites ever…

We’ve been on holiday ….

So the new fabric arrived on friday, and after a busy beavering weekend, here are the new cushions!  Choose from square and subtle (well, fairly subtle) or oblong and out there.  Either way – a gorgeous addition to any home….

I have loved loved loved this week!  I’ve been working on loads of commissions for all sorts of different things and have just so much enjoyed sitting at my desk by the window working away.  I’ve been making 8 papercuts for a gallery in Yorkshire AND (most excitingly) a batch of my new fabric has just arrived!  I haven’t even had time to make them up in to cushions yet, but here’s a preview – the text fabric will be fab large cushions, the same style as my circus cards, but big and soft and squishy.  I’ve designed the retro floral fabric around images made using a kaleidoscope – I’ve turned the patterns into beautiful flowers and geometrics using a soft colour palette which is really fresh and vibrant – I can’t wait to turn them all into cushions!

I’m so excited about 2013!  I’ve got heaps and heaps of new ideas and products in the pipeline that I can’t wait to show you!  Most of them are still in the development stage, but some are already finished and ready for the shops, starting with my fabulous cushion!  I really do love a cushion, and I mean LOVE a cushion.  You really can’t have enough so why not have one that’s fun as well!  My new cushions will bring a touch of colour and humour to your sofa, bed or anywhere you fancy….

I’m finally relaxing after an exhausting non-stop weekend at the River Cottage Autumn Fair.  I sold so much bunting I ran out of ‘I’s, ‘A’s and ‘H’s.  There were lots of Harrys, Isabels, Daisys, and names ending in ‘ie’.  My stall was between two lovely ladies, one selling gorgeous pottery and one selling gorgeous leather things and handbags.  There were lots of fun things to buy and do including welly wanging, a vegetable fancy dress competition, puppet shows, cooking demonstrations and lots and lots of animals to look at.  I also was pleased to make some bunting for some of the other stall holders including this yummy mummy

…I’ve just finished a marathon sewing session making cushions for a shop in Oxfordshire.  I had such fun putting together all the lovely patterns and colours and fabrics and they look soooooo scrummy all stacked up in a big comfylicious pile….
