A few shots from last weeks trip to Cornwall part of the uni visit tour currently happening all round the country.
Lovely to turn the trip into a mini holiday and spend some time with Laura, we did a long walk along the South West coast path on the last day and ate fantastic food at beach cafes
and the journey back by train took us along the coast and over the Tamar Bridge, which explains the peculiar shaped cloud to the left, a reflection in the train window!

Now the work begins and the fingers are crossed, because like every parent I want her dreams to come true.

How long?

Last weekend we visited UCA Farnham for the Open Day, it also happened to be our anniversary and where Chris and I met. It was a very strange feeling to go back and wander through the workshops and studios. I was so pleased to see the forge still in place although sadly the foundry is long gone. The biggest shock was finding some of my work on display and talking to one of the lecturers who had found it stored away and brought it out after over 20 years. It was alongside work by my contemporaries of the time and it was the strangest feeling to see all our work together again.
So this week I have been busy printing again and will hopefully be sharing that with you soon, I'm hoping you will think as I do that after nearly 10 years of working with other peoples fabric it's time I got back to it!

Vintage for kids

I have some gorgeous Dick Bruna books in my vintage shop right now, some in better condition than others.
All with the same perfect illustration
