Bulk

Some new work finally! 12 new cushion covers. Admittedly thay arent all brand new designs, theres a few old favourites that I’ve attempted to improve. They will all be added to the shop over the next few days!

For this selection I also changed the size of the covers from 50 x 50 cm to 40 x 40. I was hoping this would cut down the making time considerably, but to be honest it really didnt! So I guess I’ll be going back to 50 x 50 in the future….

Happy 13.

Earlier in December, Jen and I went to London, it was a pretty flying visit, but we did manage to visit a few awesome favourites of mine, including the Natural History Museum…DSCF5060 DSCF5057 And the V & A (pretty much just went around fashion and to the cafe….) DSCF5065 DSCF5066 DSCF5064

We saw The Rasmus in Camden which was… interesting…… also went to the best/oddest pub in London, I cant even remember what it was called but it was somewhere between Camden Town and Belsize Park and was covered in Christmas lights, and the landlord did a truly terrible impression of Morrisey….

We ALSO went to Hackney and bought some fantastic vintage jumpers. And all in less than 48 hours!

My fabulous Xmas haul this year included:

The rest of my time is spent frantically making 18 new cushion covers, ive actually given myself a deadline now so there is no excuse for time wasting! Im currently working on the embroidery for 2 maps of South Kensington which i sketched out ages ago (i guess unintentionally retracing my steps) :

Busy

So had the time to finish all these pieces based on vintage maps ive collected:

^^ Aberystwyth town map…..

^^ Really nice colourful map of Killarney, Ireland.

 

^^ really random wooded section from my Aberystwyth map.

Have made lots of plans for new items but I have a feeling a lot of them will never actually happen…… New cushions almost finished though!
