Today

Posted on: Wednesday, 27 November 2013


Today I am mostly wrapping up warm, listening to the hum of the heater and the voices on the radio, sewing custom Liberty dresses, washing fabric and hanging it to dry, drinking too much coffee and wishing it wasn't so cloudy so I could take photos that weren't all grainy and blurry.

Lists like this always remind me of this for some reason.


Apple Picking

Posted on: Thursday, 21 November 2013


Back in October when we were up London way we decided to go and visit my Grandfather for Sunday lunch and to pick apples from his garden. A lovely day spent eating and drinking (I seem to say that a lot... hmm food and booze) and picking as many apples as our arms could carry.

They say that men with sheds live longer. This chap has got 2 and he's 95, so therefore it must be true.

PAPER MOON

Posted on: Friday, 15 November 2013


It is time to finally release my Winter 2013 collection. So here you go! Take a look at the whole collection here.

Paper Moon is the title and it is all really themed around the night sky, I just love all those shades of navy and indigo. There are a few variations on old favourites in there: the Midnight Sky dress is a take on my Foxglove dress and the Moonset dress is the same but different as the Poppy dress - both from my Quite Contrary collection last year. There are some new shapes thrown in too and I'm rather chuffed with the smocky shape of the Dimpsy dress.

I only have a limited amount of pieces made up and a little bit of fabric left to make up a few custom orders, so if you see anything that catches your eye don't dilly dally!

PS: 'Dimpsy' is an old Devonian word for dusk. That lovely time of day when the sky is both dim and dark but also an unbelievable bright blue, it makes my eyes go all odd, I like it.

A Pretty Nice View

This place. I love it.  What a beautiful cold sunny Sunday spent drinking coffee, cooking, walking dogs and eating pie with friends.

I hope you've had a relaxing weekend.
