Fabric of the Week!

What a lovely surprise to get an email from Spoonflower to say I'd won my first contest!  I'm so pleased this design has done so well.. I loved designing it and seeing the fabric printed up so beautifully makes me so happy. 


In the Forest- Inspired by the wonderful Oscar Wilde poem but with a fawn and not a faun!

Out of the mid-wood's twilight Into the meadow's dawn, Ivory limbed and brown-eyed, Flashes my Faun! He skips through the copses singing, And his shadow dances along, And I know not which I should follow, Shadow or song! O Hunter, snare me his shadow! O Nightingale, catch me his strain! Else moonstruck with music and madness I track him in vain!



The fabric printed beautifully...  Thanks to Spoonflower for the photo!

Spring in a little garden!

I am so glad spring is finally here! I've been anticipating my tulips flowering for a long time and now they have they are so beautiful.. I planted them back in the autumn along with some purple crocus which along with a couple of lonely snowdrops were the only sign of flora in my little garden...




Now I have these beauties!  Even better, there are a few more pretty plants just coming into their moment like this bleeding heart and clematis...


My garden is so tiny but I try to have a few things in flower all the way through the summer and into autumn.  I love the variety and mood lifting qualities of beautiful flowers and can't wait to enjoy my little garden through the summer!
