Workspace, dog place and more.

Im so so thrilled to at last have a studio space again! Its been over a year since I last had a work space to make in.

Our little dog Margot is settling in so well, she sleeps by my feet under the desk as I sew and embroider.

We have faced so many hardships over the past year as a family and I can at last try and have some peace, quiet and space to think and relax in. I don’t underestimate what a special thing this is.

Patchwork Home Style

An enduring craft and easily workable into any home. From vintage to modern bright prints, paintwork, paper and plain burlap stitched round lampshades I really think there is a patchwork style to suit any interior.

Cats and Birds, oh you look so sweet!

I almost squealed today when Josh bought to my attention this beautiful paper in Paperchase. One sheet features cats and the other birds, I knew instantly they would look perfect behind the cube shelves in our lounge. Also I am a sucker for anything kitsch, vintage and featuring animals.

A merry jaunt to The Belle Isle

Today Josh, Phoebe and I went to visit fellow artist Wendy Middleditch in Chichester.

The Belle Isle in Southsea has always been a favourite haunt for us to enjoy a cold beer and amazing food so we thought it was about time we visit the new sister establishment in Chichester. We weren’t disappointed, friendly attentive staff, beautiful decoration and attention to detail. We enjoyed a yummy croissant filled with emmantel cheese and carved ham and a creamy latte. I would love to go back for a meal with my boyfriend some evening as the menu looked so inviting!

The Belle is located on Chapel Street in the shadow of Chichester Cathedral.
