Pure Colour

I love colour.
Bright, bold colour.
In blocks, In pattern.

My living room looks like a rainbow may have exploded in it.
A black leather sofa scares mine is blue and covered in cushions by Donna Wilson and Maria Hatling.

Birds, Birds, Birds

 I have been making little birds- colourful and bright. They hang on little strings nestled on a pastel coloured keyboard.

These creative people have made some brilliant bird prints- i need much more wall space!
and wow- this Donna Wilson print brings on an instant smile :)

Donna Wilson love

I love wool (it's such a good feeling material), and as it's getting a bit chilly again I've found some of my Donna Wilson pieces and made a little snuggly corner on my sofa.
When I'm not at home I am wrapped up in her lovely scarf and mittens. I don't think there is a thing she has made that i have not liked...these SCP chairs would be great to curl up into...
I think I need this little mushroom and peanut for the sofa collection!

V and A archive

 This New Year I will try a lot harder to use this space, last year was full of excuses. I have started to make some little things and I will keep this updated more.
I took the photo above at the Victoria and Albert archive. A place I can only imagine is filled with treasure- you could spend days there. It's a tiny piece of fabric from a book of tiny fabric samples. It's a fair few decades old but the colours were still vivid and bright. Colourful little bubbles.
