The creative process for me is like a game of chinese whispers, or a kind of free association where one thing always leads to another. The juxtaposition of one object with a random neighbour can send me off in another direction entirely from the one I started from. And I think that is why I love sewing so much, because fabrics are so gloriously, lusciously beautiful that they cry out to be mixed u
p and paired off into new and ever more lovely partnerships.
Sometimes I begin my working week, with a clear idea of what I want to do, but inevitably in the process I will make something and then think, oh, what if I make such and such to go with that and then another thing and on it goes till I find that all my structured plans have been superseded by this imaginative meandering.

Sunday project

Inspired by Cornwall and all things seaside, I decided to sort through my jars of shells and set some aside to make a shell mirror. These ones are the tiny ones that I won't be using, but they looked so pretty on my battered old tin tray.

Anyway, I think it turned out really well for a first attempt if I can find some more suitable frames I think I will make some more at some point.

Sunday Shop Update..

Me and the elves are working towards two updates on Sunday 23rd September, One at 10am and one at 10pm, so hopefully this will be helpful for people in different timezones. That's UK time remember.

Off to Cornwall

Hello there lovely peeps. Me and one of the elves are off to Cornwall for a few days break tomorrow, so no shop update this weekend. But I have just finished off  all the post, so if you have any orders pending they are now on their way to you. Next weekend though I propose to do something a little different. I am going to make duplicates off most of the new outfits I am working on, I have been making multiples for a while, but I propose doing two updates at different times with the same outfits in each roughly, so that you have better opportunity to catch something. I know that different time zones etc make it hard to get to right for everyone, so hopefully this will help a little. I'll let you know the times towards the end of the week.

Shop Talk

Due to un-forseen circumstances this week, i.e. having to get new computer and sort out transferring stuff etc which seemed to take ages, I am going to need some more time to finish off this week's sewing. So will update the shop Monday 10th September 10pm UK time.

Spent today and yesterday, in between sorting out my studio and fiddling with a new mac, sewing new shirts and selecting tie fabrics from my liberty scraps. Now all I have to do is sew them on. Hopefully we can get all finished for a shop update on Sunday.
