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.

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.
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)
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.
