A new blog for 2015

I've been quite poor at keeping my blog updated, but my New Year resolution is to improve. So here we go, it was a very busy year for me 2014, I created a new range of work, visited Liberty of London and received my first ever retail orders.

I have been thrilled at the response to my new animal collections, many of which started as commissions.
The hedgehog is made in pure wool, backed with silk and has a feature print from either Liberty of London or Kaffe Fassett. I love the way each one has its own character.

I have also introduced a red and grey squirrel, made in the same way as the hedgehog but this one has tiny hand sewn 'nut' beads.

I final change for this year is a re-design for my very popular Liberty Belle butterfly brooch, still a delicate 8cm but this time a new shape and an added detail of velvet eyespots.
All these pieces are available in my Etsy store.
