I love selling fabric .. sourcing it .. especially trying to find that something special - that I think others will love .. but what I really love is sketching .. On my way up to St Albans last week -(to pick up a fab (ebay) mirror from a lovely lady named sally I was working on my new ideas for some atomic fabric sketches .. in the hope that I will be able to print them myself .. Anyway I just thoughtI would pop it on here to spur myself to keep going .. here goes ... illustrator here i come ..........

A friend of mine had a new baby a while back and I have promised her that I would make her something sweet .. so I thought these cute letters make out of fab coloured fabrics would look really sweet hanging over her cot .. one squeeks and the other one ... (not sure but i am sure it will get a lot of chewing.. I hear she is a real nibbler.
Never again .. never - ever ..I mean a new bathroom .. it must be easier to build a whole new house - in fairness to my plumber I have nearly driven him mad with my 'smallest tile' in the world selection .. that is bound to drive even the nicest.. sainest person - absolutely doo lally .. but apart form that things are good... The shop usually slows down a little this time of year and I usually end up making and making .. but this year there is a house to re..do and so my making seems to have gone alittle to the wasteside .. and all I really want to do is to sit at me sewing machine ... that seems to be permanently covered with wallpaper swatches ( I don't even have any wallpaper) .. paint samples and yes the dreaded bathroom time. I do however plan on covering this small footstool that I bought of ebay - I have being looking for one to cover for ages and thins appeared ..so I had to go for it -I have taken the legs off .. but when I get them back on - I think that it will look just fab ......

For ages and ages.. and ages I have being looking for a small range of organic fabrics that were
All dyes are OEKO TEX certified, the benefits of which include: no heavy metals or toxic substances;
have a higher absorption rate which creates less waste water runoff; require less energy, salt and alkali
in the application and fixation; and the water can be recycled for reclaiming the dye that is not used.
Our imported goods are made of 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton
fibers grown, harvested, and printed in India, one of the leaders in the organic cotton movement.
