Nice projects for lurverly people and one of my own... 
1) Some wedding stationary I designed for a friends summer wedding.
2) A cookbook cover I did a while ago for The Daventry Townswomen's Guild. My mum is a member so I really wanted to help her with the cover. She made a great job of editing and collecting loads of fab recipes - a great fundraiser too. Go mum!
3)Best Made Local branding, posters and flyer design - a makers market I am organising with a friend, aiming to promote local quality makers. something I really believe in and think supporting local business helps our local economy and community. I just need to find time to make some nice good quality things myself lol!

Tilleke Schwarz

Purr Chase 2008
What you see is what you get 2006

    I met Tilleke Schwarz last week at Ali Pali Knitting and Stitching show last weekend. I have to admit I was star struck. When she spoke to me I just said "love your work". How embarrassing. She's been my embroidery hero for years and that was all I could say. Lovely to see so much of her work in the flesh though. All photos copyright of Tilleke Schwartz

    V. excited to see my tortoise design on Print and Pattern today as part of a feature about fabric rehab. I created the design for Jodds (they have it on cards, notepads, invites and giftwrap). Then, Dashwood studios (a new wonderful UK based Craft Fabric manufacturer) loved it and have licenced it for fabric - It sits in their novelty range. Fabulous to see a design used on so many different things... Please go and buy some fabric here right now, you can never have enough fabric...

    The Perfect Life - Moby (ft Wayne Coyne)

    I love this tune at the mo and the video is fabulous too. I like the idea of walking along in a mariachi costume singing, collecting various harmless odd bods and having a party at sunset with a may pole. Bonkers! I like Moby a lot but Waynes Coyne is THE MAN!
