This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

Delightful Delphiniums

This week I used this lovely old barkcloth fabric to create another cushion. I combined it with a Laura Ashley fabric of a similar delphinium design...

As I worked with these fabrics, their washed-out look reminded me of the foxglove flowers that appear in the Beatrix Potter illustrations for the Jemima Puddleduck story...

Which inspired a new collection of handmade greetings cards
I used snippets of the fabrics alongside the illustrations from a vintage book. 

I'm itching to work on more now!
Enjoy your weekend,
