Strike

I was tragically excited to get a hat out for my journey to work this morning. Today I went for a black beret with a black and white polkadot bow. I was looking forward to the arrival of my lovely new winter boots, just in time for a day at a castle in the countryside tomorrow. I somehow missed the news of a major postal strike in the city (again) and must imagine my lovely new boots sitting sad and lonely in a postal sorting office wishing they could be stomping through grass and leaves while paired with thick black tights and a plum coloured woollen dress.

Luckily this lovely fabric from Kathy Hall at fabricsupplies on etsy is restoring my love of autumn, and giving me all sorts of ideas for a new autumn quilt. Maybe a log cabin with autumn golds, deep reds, plums, aubergine and deep greens…

Globetrotting

 blue_marble

We’re a bit in love with this photographic decal from WilsonGraphics and are thinking it would look quite at home in the new office, surrounded by rather a lot of bookcases.

Since falling in love with the globe, which makes me think of Apollo missions and the blue marble and earth rise images, I’ve started hankering after an old fashioned globe to go on the desk. It seems there’s something very grown-up about having a globe. I’m sure my geography wont improve, but that’s what sat nav and google maps are for surely?

I can just imagine sitting here with a cup of tea in the morning, and a glass of wine in the evening, listening to the birds singing. Today it’s pouring with rain in the city centre so I shall sit back and dream of living here…

Ashridge bluebells

We spent a magical day wandering through the incredible bluebell woods at Ashridge earlier this year. It was like being in a film. Two little girls were dancing around the bluebells looking for fairies, the sun was slipping through the trees and highlighting patches of flowers and making the colours pop. Go in late April/early May. You wont regret it.

My what big teeth you have…

 My Grandmother used to have a fridge magnet which said “the one who dies with the most fabric wins!”  We’re pretty sure she won as her house was filled with fabric, the majority of which my Mum inherited and my sisters and I have added to our fabric stashes from the treasures she had saved.

One fabric my Mum and I both adored was a vintage Little Red Riding Hood print. There’s a reproduction version of it available (see below).

We ended up splitting the fabric and taking half each. The fabric has been in the running to be included in nearly every quilt, babygro, applique project I’ve ever worked on but it’s so precious I don’t want to waste it! I think it would be lovely on a chair like this in the craft studio, with another remnant of it framed in a pretty white frame on the desk.
