I lived on a small island in the South China Sea with a husband, two sons and a scruffy dog and now I live in London which is in a slightly larger small island with a scruffy husband two large boys and a very fluffy dog.
Hong Kong. Love it or hate it you can't forget it. One of my most favourite things is the Star Ferry. I try as often as I can to grab a coffee and travel that journey always sitting at the top in the middle by the rail. No airconditioned cabins for me it just wouldn't be right.
So a little sneaky peak at the Christmas card I am working on. It's an idea I have thought about for a while. The problem is filling the steamer.It is a work in progress so this is not the finished product by a long way. I am hoping to post some more of my new designs as we get closer to the fair. I'm working on some new Tea Towels some notebooks as well as the old favourites my bunting and lavender bags.
It has been feeling more autumnal here with the typhoons bringing cooler weather and it made me go back and have a look through my photo files. I know it was generally considered a rubbish summer weather wise in Europe but it looks good in the pictures!
It seems so long ago now. I attended the Handmade fair in Discovery Bay with my partner in crime Rice Bowl Republic. Hello to anyone who is visiting me on this site that met me at the fair.
I showcased my mice for the first time. Alas no sale but I thought he looked very sweet floating there above the table. It was actually a very successful day. So we have booked for the next fair which is in November. More information on that closer to the time
