This is, as you all know, the weekend of love, so it was obviously the perfect time to celebrate one of my best friends upcoming wedding. Firstly though I must mention the #sheepishheartbomb that happened on Valentines day itself. Last year I joined the followers of the gorgeous One Sheepish Girl in their quest to cover the world in knitted, crotched and fabric hearts. It was such a success that we did it again this year, and even though a storm was raging I was determined to drop my felted hearts and love notes around Bath. If you found one I hope it made you smile.
Then came Saturday and the beautiful Akiko's hen day...
It started in the afternoon with Akiko and us four bridesmaids taking a champagne tea at the Bath Pump Room, with plenty of bubbles, pastries and of course tea.
Then we met the other girls for a night of cocktails, Thai tapas and sparkles.
Now it's time to relax and enjoy this rare bit of sunshine xx
Today, as well as working on my new collections, I decided to start updating my online shops for 2014. There are one or two newer pieces added to the shop as well as giving some firm old favourites a little make over.
Over the weekend I managed to pick up some lovely props to use in my photographs, these include old keys, some glass ink wells, pocket watch movements and a beautiful early 19th century book about polar exploration. Here are the results, if you want to see more you can also pop over to my folksy shop here.
Well, I was finally back in the studio today and what a lovely feeling that was. After the manic end to 2013 and the excesses of Christmas and New Year I took some time out, but being in the studio is where I actually feel I need to be.
I started out by playing with some simple designs but there are already lots of ideas floating around so watch this space for new pieces, including more rings and lockets.
