I’ve been super busy lately. Like busy beyond belief. I move from one order to the next with precision, speed and catlike reflexes.
No, not really.
I can get into the zone and work like an obsessed maniac which is why, having a studio away from our house works so well for me. Although admittedly I do on occasion bring hand sewing home to do after the kids are in bed. But man is not machine. Man is man. Or woman in this instant and I do need to stop for breath which is why I’m so looking forward to having a break over Easter. Andy and the kids, sleep-ins and movie watching, Easter eggs and friends. Can’t wait.
I might sneak into the studio though to work on the two new Hankey Blankeys I’m making. My hankey stash was running low and then the delightful Kitty Speer (who is embarking on an incredible adventure!) was spring cleaning her studio and happened to find almost a hundred hankeys that she had collected over the years. Out of the sheer goodness of her heart she sent them all to me. Let me just say that once more. ALL. TO. ME. I felt very lucky and inspired, so around orders I have been tinkering and making and ironing and sewing and I have completed two fronts, with a couple more in the pipeline. I’ve also some ridiculously cute Hankey plush balls on the horizon. The one above is so pretty and light.But this one, this has stolen my heart and I’m not sure I’ll be able to sell it! It’s my biggest ever, using forty-nine hankeys in total and measuring one and half meters squared. Mega.
Anyway, happy Easter break everyone, but before I go a couple of extra bits of news….
I have four lovely new stockists which I am very pleased to say. Heide Store, The Woodsfolk, Naughts and Crosses and Adorn In Style.
I did a little interview over here on writer and stylist Kylie Jackes blog.
And something very exciting, Andy has been working on an amazing print for me based on my feathers. It’s going to be spectacular and there will be capes. Capes! I know.
