Psychologies Magazine

Chuffed to bits to see my new Myall cushion featured in next month's Psychologies Magazine!  This is one of my favourite designs and I hope some of you might like it too!  I have it on good authority that 100% silk cushions make excellent xmas presents for very special people :)

I'm also gearing up for the November 15th Home Is In The North interiors show in Manchester Halle St Peter's, a fantastic showcase of northern design and a stunning venue!  Get it in your diaries :)  Of course that means I have loads of cushions and lampshades to make up so it's just as well that I enjoy my work!  The show is open to the public so please come along and bring all of your interiors buddies.

I just had to include this photo of my orchid - got to turn this into a design sometime.  Amazing colour!

Autumn beckons...

September sun over the veg patch

September has been a beautiful month - the sun has shone and warm breezes are still in our midst.  The garden has bloomed this year (not a garden more a veg patch!).  The broad beans were sweet and delicious and the onions were onions (!).  Lovely though!  

I know I here to talk about my designs but it's the simple things in life that really matter - good food, good health and great friends.  These are the things that inspire me and make me happy, and September has been about slowing down and taking stock of those important things in life. Hence the lack of new posts (last one way back on Sept 7th).   I won't go into any details but I'm dedicating this post to my dearest friend Karen, of whom I'm thinking about a lot right now.

Sweet broad beans!

Love this little squash and vintage jug I picked up in time for Halloween!
