Vintage fabric mini garland in my shop. I love making these so much as every piece is different and beautiful. There is old embroidery of hyacinths and patchwork in this one and I’ve cut out some flowers too.

I received my copy of Selina’s brand new book a couple of weeks ago and was completely overwhelmed to find so many pics of my house in it. I’ve taken photos of the pages and I’m not going to write anything with them because that would make me feel silly, like when an estate agent shows you round a house saying “this is the kitchen, this is the lounge” and you just want to ask him to please go away so you can look round in peace. The photographer is Catherine Gratwicke and the words are by Joanna Simmons.
Thank you SO much Selina Lake, Catherine Gratwicke, Joanna Simmons and publishers http://www.rylandpeters.com
I took this photo at my Pop up Shop in July. It was hard to ‘style’ it nicely because there is so much and because the lavender hearts are in cellophane bags and they slip and slide all over the place so I just plonked it attractively on the table and hoped for the best. There is a selection of all of these at my on line shop
Here is one of a few new vintage fabric pin cushions that I’ve made this week.A lot of the fabric was hand printed in America in the forties and the colours and prints are just astonishingly beautiful. I’ve sewn my pink ‘Lots of Love’ labels on them all.
