My first book deal - press release today.

I've been keeping a big secret for several months until today - I'm going to be working on three books for Collins and Brown. The press release in the Bookseller can be viewed here. Am really excited  -  the first book is due to be out October 2013. I've been working with a wonderful literary agent from WME called Claudia Webb. It's going to be a busy time here in my studio!


*New Learn To Count Number Dogs - Giveaway

Here are my new 'learn to count' number dogs that were initially designed for my daughter to help her with her numbers before starting school. They're now available here. I'm offering two free ones to my blog readers  -  all you need do is tell me who would like them and why? I shall pick the winner at the end of the month.

My love for 50s Mahler fabric

My love for 50s Marian Mahler fabric seems to grow each year. This is one of my favourite fabrics of hers and I would definitely have had long curtains made from it if only I'd had had enough of it!
Here it is draped in my study. The bottom photo shows another of her red deigns that I have framed.
I'm gradually starting to add photos of my fabrics to my Pinterest site here.

Vintage and retro Miffy cushions

Have had numerous requests in the past week for my Miffy cushions so am preparing some more today. Please get in touch if you'd like one as I'll not be having an endless supply of these as I've only a few original 70s Miffy pieces left and they're very hard to find in good condition!
