Art work by GIORGIO GRIFFA

I recently discovered the work of Giorgio Griffa via Mint Design Blog. I love the simple designs and use of colour - very inspiring! You can see the complete portfolio here.

Exhibition at South Cerney

I haven't been able to blog for a long time due to getting a beautiful but very time consuming Labrador puppy called Bobbin! She is settling in well to her new home so hopefully things will become easier and I will be able to start dedicating more time to my textiles again.



 Recently I have been focusing on developing some slightly more commercial products that are cheaper to produce and can therefore be sold at a more affordable price. Over the years I have collected vintage fabrics from charity shops, vintage fairs and I also inherited a lot from my late Aunties awhile ago. I have been working on to these fabrics to create pretty embroidery hoop pieces perfect for a little girls' bedroom.  


On Bank Holiday Monday I was part of a small Art exhibition in a church hall in the very pretty village of South Cerney. I was pleased at the response to my new products; I sold a few things and got lots of nice comments. I need to get some slightly better photos taken of the embroidery hoops then I will be adding them to my Folksy shop.
