I don`t know about you, but i`m dreaming about holidays! so I thought i`d give you a sneak preview of my new Ile de Re Collection. The collection is inspired by the french island and my holiday there last summer…Available to buy soon…
I love Grayson Perry even more after hearing the radio 4 reith Lectures and so i was so excited to see the tapestries in real life (I`d seen the documentary about them on channel 4, where he was gathering inspiration for the work)
The detail and colour is amazing! Here is a taster……
Happy new year! I`ve not made too many resolutions so far I don`t think the new year feeling has properly sunk in, but reflecting on my favourite bits from 2013 reminds me of what a lovely year it has been!…here are my top five highlights…
1.Top on my list has to be my new studio…I`ve had a break from it over christmas and am really looking forward to getting back in there!
2. France and in particular my visit to the beautiful island of Ille de Re, my spring/summer collection 2014 is named after this island, ( I`ll give you a sneak preview of that collection soon!)
3. The inspiring buildings of Portugal
4.My visit to beautiful Blackwell House and now my jewellery is sold there!
5. And my final highlight… I started my patchwork quilt last January and recently I `ve been inspired to start up again and it`s been making my winter evenings so cosy…this was where I was last year…..
and now….(i still have a long way to go!)
Hope you`ve had time to reflect on 2013…
