The Wheatfield




I just found The Wheatfield shop on Etsy and I am in love. So inspiring, colourful, a feast for the eyes. I might have to get a print, but which one!?

Recipes.






Now I'm not designing for my shop anymore, I am working on collating some favourite recipes of mine. I am hoping to do some paintings of the finished thing, or process or the baking.

I'm not sure how this little project will work out but I hope it'll be so cute!

Meet Alex.


This is Alex, and what he says is true, he is now top chap at SheDraws, which also means the SHOP is back open!

YAY!

I'm so pleased it is open and that Alex is going to be running and designing for the shop.

At the moment there is no new stock, but we have some favourites left, although very limited stock might I add, but you can see grab some goodies for Christmas, and hopefully we can get you some lovely jubbly designs ready soon.

Feel free to let us know what your favourite items are in the shop and what designs you like best so we can get creating some even better stuff.

From the Market.



I have no idea what these flowers are, but I just love them. The lovely market lady also gave me an extra two as it was nearly closing time.

Carrier Pigeon


A couple of weeks ago, when London Design Week was on, Selvedge mag set up a stitching shop in the V&A for passers by and great fans to join in and stitch some lovely pigeons that were perfectly screen printed by Thornback & Peel. Both Sami Teasemade and I went along to this great day and lovingly created our very own pigeon to keep once the whole troop of them had taken part in a photo shoot at Trafalgar Square.

Pigeons, by the way, are a long running connection which me since my boyfriend affectionately calls me Pigeon, or Pige, as did Jack Duckworth to his beloved Vera. Since this started Pigeons seem to follow me, including one time when I rescued a racing pigeon from preying cats for 3 whole days until her owner could arrange a collection.

Anyway, you can view more exciting pigeon stitch photo's on Teasemades blog and also on the Selvedge Flickr site where my pigeon sits proudly with a Lion!

It was a truly great day, so you should sign up to Selvedge's mailing list to find out about future events and I will see you there!

Blowing away the cobwebs.

I realised I hadn't blogged for a while and things have been busy. I'm still deciding what to do about my blog and how to take it to the next stage, so please excuse the huge gaps in between each post!

Whilst things have been busy, nothing too exciting has been going on and every time I go out I forget to take my camera! I promise to go and explore my new place to call home with my camera next time, so for now I leave you with a picture from Sunday when the Boyfriend took me to see some car event at Brands Hatch. It was such a gorgeous say and I was pleased to be able to wear my new rayban clubmaster's glasses all day long.
