I received my wallpaper samples from Spoonflower this morning, and I am so so pleased with them. There is only one design I need to tweak before I'm happy to have it for sale, but all five of the others are perfect and are already available to buy direct from my shop at Spoonflower.
First up are two designs from the Flossie's Garden range. I'm afraid my camera hasn't really done them justice...combination of low light and shakey hands, sorry.
Next are the designs from my Dahlia range.

Insomnia sometimes has it's uses. I dreamed up some little capes a few weeks ago at around 3am, scribbled a little drawing on a scrap of paper and pretty much ignored it. Or rather had no time to do anything about it until today.
My mother in law recently gave me some of her beautiful woven welsh wool blankets, sadly they are really damaged from years of not very careful looking after, but I managed to salvage two pieces from this blue blanket to make bed throws, and with the remnants piece together this prototype cape.
Far from perfect, but the beginnings of a more refined design are at least now taking shape.
Sadly, I don't have a supply of wool blankets, but I do have some lovely blue tweed and some gorgeous chunky corduroy.
I'm thinking, hoods and arm holes, and seam detail, collars, lining, matching mittens and hats....
