Flapjack AND chocolate. Winning combination!
It’s knitting time again! Last year we created 144 teeny tiny hats for Innocent’s Big Knit and this year we’re determined to beat it! The knitty fun has started already so watch this space to see how many we make and which fab designs we produce…here are a few snaps of this week’s (self-named) ‘Granny Circle’ in action….
Fans of scandi-brand Marimekko may already be familiar with Aino-Maija Metsola’s designs. I love her vibrant use of colour and in true Finnish style, her quirky mix of icons and patterns are just perfect. Here are a few of my faves! (My wardrobe is defintely missing that dress!)
Inspiring use of colour and composition by the talented Yolanda Mosquera...
Julie Arkell shows her whimsical paper mache/mixed media creatures in a solo show at Ruthin Craft Centre, North Wales. The show is on at the moment and runs until 30th November, worth a visit if you are in the area!
Tove Johansson is a Swedish born designer currently working in Paris. She designs for fashion, textiles, paper goods and interior, as well as developing her own accessory and
interior product line. In true scandinavian style, her geometric prints are both eye-catching and minimal in their design. I definitely need all of those throw cushions on my sofa immediately!!
