 strawberries & sunshine make a welcome return to &made. 

it really is a beautiful morning & the sunshine is a perfect accompaniment to these little handmade strawberry  pins - the felted leaf  & stem is like a jaunty cap - an elegant finishing touch !

Autumn is here and we’re all cosying up for winter. I’ve been busy on some new cushion designs – a selection are already on sale in my studio in Manchester Craft & Design Centre and in the wonderful Snug, in Hebden Bridge – a lovely day out!

The countdown to the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Show is underway - and this ’home’ cushion design from &made will be one of the new items featured.

&made  can be found on stand no.3. It will be my first outing at a show of this size and stature – do come and say hello!

i was really excited to the receive the october issue of country homes & interiors this afternoon!  there is a lovely feature of this beautiful holiday home set in the forest of bowland and tucked away in these delicious images are a few selected items from &made - i’m unashamedly thrilled to bits!

i love the colours and textures in this house, it’s such a pleasure to see my work sitting so comfortably in these  room settings – just as if it along belongs there. i’ve got to say a big thank you to beverley for asking me to supply the work, & vivienne & brent, from ch&i for featuring it. these magazine shots look effortless but I saw at first hand what a huge amount of work goes into one photo shoot it made me appreciate it even more.

window dress-ing

farrow & ball gown

farrow & ball gown

 

i‘ve had a  fab few days, designing & making this frock, using some beautiful farrow & ball wall paper samples.

thanks to debbie peers who owns the  lovely millan interiors shop and design service in parbold, lancashire for giving me this dream job.  the farrow & ball gown was commissioned for a new window dressing display;  i couldn’t resist attempting matching bag and shoes just to complete the picture!

it’s wierd how two completely seperate projects come along from entirely different sources yet are linked. following on the heels of the window dressing project i have been lucky enough – again -  to be involved in a course of workshops being run over the summer at the whitworth art gallery.  the interior design course has been inspired by the current exhibition – ‘ the walls are talking’ . four of my lovely fellow tenants are running consecutive weeks of skills workshops designed to explore various techniques & ideas with a group of keen and ambitious crafters.  we’re all looking forward to it, i’ll report back – hopefully with some images of our creations.

a big thank you to ed watts for involving mc&dc tenants in this project.
