had a great day today, this morning we did a boot sale at the marina. I had to try really hard not to spend all of the taking so was restrained but couldn't resist this fab sixties apron and a couple of other cheeky bargins.

When we got home and while olive slept off the excitment we reminded ourselves of our garden and I couldn't help but notice white, normally a big fan of colour I experienced a new fresh appreciation of the simple.

Time away.

Hallo, I have been on a road trip this week visiting my Watermark pals and making the most of my time with Olive before getting stuck back into some hardcore work in the Autumn.

It has been great to catch up, goss and chat design, I know this design from Laura Ashley has been around a while but everytime I see it I fall deeper in love, it was nice to wake up and see bees buzzing through the design. Lets hope there is some sun on the cards for this weekend.

Last night.

Had a fab night on the razz last night for my friends hen doo and ran into the very lovely Scott Mills offa Radio 1 along the way, I was chuffed to bits as I regularly listen to his show which never fails to make me laugh!!

He was indeed really really nice too, good stuff :)

Razzle dazzle.

I am off out tomorrow night on a friends hen doo, I am a little anxious as getting drunk doesnt seem like the brightest idea plus the rain has been coming down all day but I am going to embrace the theme, The Only way is Essex!! and have been tanning to the max already now just need to glue some more stuff to my body and we should be away!! EEK!! have good weekends all :)

So if I dream of what I would be if not a designer I would sOOo be a roller chick!!:)
I am partial to a bit of pop too and just love this DJ Fresh track on the Lucozade Ad at the mo.
What would your alter ego/job be??? I'd love to hear...

Sunny day.

The sunshine has come to visit hurrah!!

busy times at the mo dont acually think I have ever been this tired and have more respect than ever for my fellow mums, this is pretty exhausting stuff!

Olive is nearly 6 months, I am spending lots of time blending crazy concoctions in the kitchen, working on lovely briefs, and have taken a new and exciting desk space which I will be moving to in Autumn!!

Oh yeah and the picture, love the fabric and thinking of making this simple style top for little people to sell on stalls...???

Lovely person-lovely work.

I had my first full day away from Olive on Monday, courtesy of my Mother-in-law and took the opportunity to go up to London and visit my textiles agent whilst also dropping into the Pulse show at Earls Court, there in the launchpad area was the gorgeous work of dearprudence.

It caught my eye as I had been sent this beautifully illustrated card just after having Olive.

As it happens Laura Vickers of dearprudence is a smashing chick to boot!!

To see more of Lauras work go to www.dearprudence.info
