I just wanted to share a blog post with you. Toft have written about their new collection and have kindly included little old me.
I am quite bowled over, such a nice review.
I’ve also been sent a copy of my sock pattern, ooh it does look good to see it professionally finished in print.
(sorry about the scruffy blog post, I’ve just done a thirteen hour day and I think my brain has shut down for the evening.)
“Thank you to everyone who has supported me in the last five years, without you this wouldn’t have been possible., ” grabs my Oscar and exits stage left.
Seriously though, you all know who you are that took the time and helped explain the intricacies of knitting, even if you had to explain it more than once, or was that twice, okay then more than twice. Without you, I wouldn’t have had as much fun, or learnt anywhere near as much, thank you, thank you again.
I’m one week in on my Art and Design course in Fashion and Clothing which has been a blast. I am truly joyful and happy, every day has been a new adventure. I am surrounded by a lovely group of girls who have been very gentle and kind and have bonded with me as one of there own. They have helped when I have got stuck when using the PC’s in the library (being a Mac girl) and when I have been too frightened to make marks on the paper from fear of not being able to draw.
On the other hand I have helped when they have got stuck when making there skirt block, and given ideas about designers that I know about that weren’t on the list given by the tutors, extra points for own research being at the front of my mind. Many of them have already booked up for help when we get to the sewing next week, once they get going I am sure they are going to be fine.
On my mood board I love the dark outlines of my stained glass window of my cala lillies and of the acanthus. My home made flower and I couldn’t resist the photo of a strawberry flower, I really love the stamens they have so abundant and pretty.
I am very proud of this little mood board, there is a certain cohesiveness which I thought I would never be able to achieve. It also has a little of the Monty Python about it with stone masonary sprouting from lillies which appeals to my sense of humour.
