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.
British Sea Birds will be available next week exclusively from Southsea Coffee!
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.
Recently I was asked to sew a large flag/banner for the Strong Island stage ‘Drunken Sailor’ at Southsea Fest. I really enjoyed making the flag and it looked rad hanging behind the bands as they played! Im also getting to that point where the house even though we rent is feeling like home.
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 bit of homely inspiration for a wet Wednesday…
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.
Just messing around with the Pudding Camera app, ooh I like it. Its similar to Instagram but has other options like fish eye, which is o.k, not brilliant though. You can select the type of film you want to use and share and transport images easily. Thumbs up for this camera app!
The adorable Mr Often Hover and Ms Ooh la Lapin get the key to there new home tomorrow. A cosy little Victorian terrace house to cherish and call our own, my two little lapins shall be in tow and are most excited about having bunk beds and a rug with a bear on it. So to celebrate here are some interiors to make you a wee bit giddy…
