Lomo Diana

Elin and I have ordered Lomo Diana cameras so that we can take beautiful pictures and experiment with pinhole too. This is very exciting, and I will be taking mine with me to Scotland next week.

Inspiration and stuff

My new Blythe arrived. Haven't decided what to call her yet. She is very cute and it seems strange, but I think she is slightly shorter. can this be possible?

I have decided to subscribe to Selvedge magazine, finally. It works out cheaper than buying them individually and I won't have to hunt around for it anymore. Also, I need it for inspiration of course.

I have developed a liking for the edging of fabrics, the bit where they show the dye colours and the name of the print etc. Very lovely. These are some off my recent projects.

I have been invited to contribute to this blog So I need to do some nice photos of my studio, not the usual messy ones that I take normally like these ones.

WOI- Further inspiration

I have a massive collection of old World of Interiors Magazines. It is one of my favourite things. Mainly I think because it has so many pictures of chairs. I have a thing about chairs and one day I may dedicate a whole blog to them, and all they mean to me..

But in the meantime, back in moshi-moshi land I have been searching for new back-drops for my photos and my WOI mags are brilliant for this purpose, so here are some lovely pages that have inspired me.

The tea-cups are lovely and make me think of Mad Hatters and Alice.
(Sorry about the weird colour, not sure why this has happened)

This weeks inspiration- Gertrude Jekyll

I am a frantic note and sketchbook keeper myself so it is a joy to see other peoples, and these pics are from the sketchbook of Gertrude Jekyll- best known for her garden design. Love the attention to detail and the interest in pattern.

These images are from World of interiors Aug 1996

Busy, busy, busy

I have been making these little blouses and skirts like mad recently. The pattern of the blouse is so lovely and I have made several variations too. I have loads of nice fabric at the moment and it just really inspires me. Still not enough time in the day to do all the things I want to.

These photos are the uncensored ones, as I felt that the little models were a bit too saucy for etsy. I made the clothes dummies ages ago, when I first started making my clothes. Maybe I should make another one soon.
