I'd like to say I sat down to this cup of tea and spent a few hours sketching but it's just a pretty tableau to show off the beautiful detail inside the cover of our petal & pins notebooks that we released at the beginning of Spring. It's exciting to go from an idea, finesse a design and then hold a new product in my hands.
The posy in the photo is from my patchwork hedge, there is lilac, crabapple blossom, japonica, beauty bush and a rose and if I'm lucky (like this year) their flowering overlaps for a colourful spring display.
The hedge inspired the patchwork dress which features in our Garden Fairy's Wardrobe card collection. A sundress design I like to think of as conjuring up weekends wandering around markets or picnics with friends.
I timed the photoshoot perfectly because now it's raining - the garden will love that and I'll go and put the kettle on for a cup of tea I'll actually get to drink before sorting stock to pack for the Made by Hand Market this weekend at Hazelhurst Arts Centre.
