After a very dry and sunny April we are finally getting our April showers. On Thursday it bucketed down and it left the garden and beyond the most wonderful lush green. Yes, I'm British and I enjoy talking about the weather.
Here is a little sneak peek at the collection I've been working on in collaboration with the marvelous Jo Waterhouse, what a talented lady! I'm so excited to complete this collection and show you all, it feels like I'm finally making stuff I really feel proud of... More to follow my lovelies. You can see stuff as it happens here of course.

I think these photos were actually taken at the end of last summer. My sister and I catching some final summer rays in the garden. This is one of my favourite tops and I wear it all the time (I'm wearing it today even), it's organic cotton and I'm tempted to buy loads even though I don't need to.
On Sunday caught the end of Desert Island Discs with Pat Albeck. I've not heard of Pat before but something about the way she spoke about design and creating work for others was so wonderful, it made me turn the radio up and sit in silence for the rest of the show. She went to the Royal College of Art in 1950 and I just can't imagine what a weird and wonderful time it was to be studying this subject. She said she paints every day and that you have to keep it up otherwise it's too hard to go back. She said you have to create stuff that you would want, and you want to buy and not try to please other people, she said other things and you should listen to them here.
Without Radio 4 I wonder if I would learn anything.
