September has flown by! I’ve been busy designing new ranges, embarking on a new sewing adventure and doing a little travelling….
A little sneak peek at a new ready-to-go range. A proper launch to follow very soon!
I completed a dress making course at The White Room in South East London. I made The Camber Set dress by Merchant & Mills in a lovely chambray I bought from Ray Stitch in Islington (the most beautiful shop – oh my gosh go even if you are not a sewer!). The Tuesday evening lessons were such a joy – it has been so nice to learn something new and completely out of my comfort zone.
We travelled to Somerset to visit Steve’s family for a long weekend and stopped off in Frome for our first night – it’s one of my favourite British towns. We stayed at Archangel and ate at their restaurant which sits in this very impressive ancient barn space.
The next day, on our way to Chard to visit the family, we stopped off at Bruton to visit the new Hauser & Wirth gallery and the garden by my favourite desgnier, Piet Oudolf. It is an absolute must see if you are ever in the area and they have a great calendar of exhibitions lined up (i’ll be popping in at Christmas to see Pipilotti Rist) and a very nice looking cafe/restaurant. I loved these enormous tubs of florals.
And so now October…. I am not sure I have come to terms with the fact summer is over but I shall take Martin Creed’s words to heart.
