Bullion knots...

I have never been able to do a bullion knot before - just never understood them. French knots I can do perfectly but I just could not get my head around the bullion knot. Until now! Super proud of myself :-)

The Bark Foundation again...

I am working on a project with The Bark Foundation at the moment. Here's something I was working on yesterday...

 


 
 

Card designs...

I have finally finished 20 card designs that I am pleased with - it has definitely taken me long enough! Yesterday I started on the stitching which was really fun as I've spent so long staring at them in just pen. I'm not going to upload photos yet as I'd rather they be finished and printed first. I am super excited for that day though! Hopefully by early summer I will be ready to go :-)

Sock fair...



 A few weeks ago I went to see my lovely friend Charlotte Dredge at sock fair in Loughborough. I saw some lovely things there and thought I would share some photos of the things that I couldn't help but buy...


The jug above and the card below are by Jade Devall and I very much couldn't resist. She had loads of lovely things for the home, both ceramics and textiles...



 The brooch above and the necklace below are by Katie Stainer. I bought the brooch on the day but the necklace was a commision. Me and my sister both had them made with the places of our Unversities in. They came pretty fast and she was really lovely...


The bags of bird seed were by Helen Hallows, she was selling them for charity and I just thought they were really sweet, however I have been on her website and her ceramics and prints are really lovely too...

I also loved the work of Charlotte Morrison who makes, "Quirky handbuilt ceramics inspired by vintage advertising and object from times past." Also, Louise Wright Design who creates really lovely illustrations...
