Studio tidying up session!




Have been trying to tidy up my studio and sort through all my fabrics. (what a long job!) Am pleased as I found the missing piece to my daughter's Dick Bruna puzzle.

Vintage Beatles fabric cushion



I've just bought this wonderful 60s (or 70) Beatles pop art fabric that I'm now making into cushions.

Danish Bjorn Wiinblad ceramic picture




I re-discovered this by chance whilst clearing out a cupboard. It's by Bjorn Wiinblad and was one of the very first items I bought on ebay around 5 years ago. I love it again so will hang it up! It dates from 1976 and has been signed on the reverse. I went through a huge phase of loving his ceramics and have quite a few dotted around my home. I went to Copenhagen just a few months after he'd died.

Mary White 50's fabric cushions




I'm now gradually getting round to listing some rare vintage fabric cushion covers to my website. These are 'Coppice' by Mary White - 1950's. Mary designed for Heals and Liberty in the 50's and these are one of her well known and loved fabrics from that time.

Swedish apples and 50's street scene







Here are two cushions that I've made from fabrics I've just had the fortune to find. The apples fabric is vintage Swedish cotton and the street scene is from the 50's. These will also be available from my website. (The doll is the doll I designed for Clothkits)

Orla Kiely and Miffy patchwork cushions



I love putting different colours and patterns together - here are two patchwork cushions I made yesterday using new Orla Kiely fabric, vintage fabric and retro spots. These will be available to buy from my webshop.
