An afternoon of designing...x

A couple of quiet hours to lose myself in colours, patterns and my whimsical little one/ world...I have so many ideas for new little creatures and of course the trees that they spend their days climbing and hiding behind...


It is such a lovely bright afternoon, the sun is shining through the windows and making everything dappled and a little bit hazy like life in soft focus...I love to surround myself with things that I love like my old letter stencil and of course my k+s beautiful embroidery, I have had that for many years...


Here are a few snaps of me working that my talented friend Ellie took a couple of weeks ago after we had finished our photoshoot.  I really like them because they feel very natural and honest...this is what my work desk looks like, lots of heaped up piles of fabrics, ribbons and threads, along with sketches, scraps of notes and a couple of sketchbooks...this is how I really like to work, a kind of messy creative hubub (not sure if that is a real word, but it suits...)



I've just realised what is missing from these photos...my precious apple mac, which I surely couldn't live without!  Paper, pens, sewing machine, camera and baby apple...my absolute essential kit for sure, I love to add in all of the trims, tape and embellishments but if I had to I could lose all of those things and cope with my creative essentials. Sorry for forgetting you precious baby apple!



Ok, less chatting and more designing for me...I'll show you what I've been up to when I next check in.  I hope you are enjoying your afternoon whatever you are doing...x
