New Clothkits catalogue 2009







I'm really happy with how the new Clothkits catalogue looks and it was lovely seeing all my designs and dolls. My new vintage sewing machine logo was also used which I'm pleased with.
Catalogues are available from the Clothkits website.

Vintage children's wooden toy doll.


I bought this for my daughter - a vintage German wooden dancing doll from I'm guessing the 60s or 70s.

More of my ceramic collection - 60s 70s












Here are some more snap shots of some of my ceramics - I just love the bold colours from the 70s! The sun mug is by John Clapisson for Hornsea.
