Well this is my first ever blog post so I thought I should start by introducing myself! So here goes… I’m a textile designer with a love of colour and a passion for fabric. I’m addicted to all things pretty and anything with a nautical or ‘English country’ feel. There are a lot of things I love, including pressed glass cake stands, big vintage flower prints, polka dots, brown paper and string, rustic painted furniture, walking in the countryside, fabric bunting, pretty patterned crockery, hot air balloons, growing flowers in my garden and many more things besides.
I’m obsessed with storage and love collecting all sorts of different tins, boxes and bags to keep all of my clutter hidden, including a beautifully battered old leather suitcase which I use to hold some of my fabrics (picked up at a car boot sale for £2!) and an old fashioned printer’s tray which is perfect for storing some of my cottons. I do like to make a lot of mess when I’m working, but with everything else I’m compulsively neat and very organised; in fact making lists is a speciality of mine!
