Whoa there! – is it that time of year again already??

Our house will be open next weekend for the Totterdown Arts Trail  (v. exciting!) – would be great if you can make it along!

Thinking Caps

25 Sep

Here is a design I did recently for cycle cap to go into the Thinking Caps exhibition at the Howies store in Bristol:

The hat was made up with a tweed fabric panel across the top and a tweed visor.
Here are a couple of pics of me wearing the finished article 🙂 :

And here are a couple of pics from the show:

More photos can be found on the Howies flickr photostream here.

Dutty Fabric

24 Jul

Here is a fabric design I did for my friend Louisa over at Dutty Girl.
Dutty Girl is a Bristol based crew of DJs, MCs and producers. The fabric was designed to be made into clothes for a music video – hurrah!

Louisa wanted something based on her penchant for silk scarves and gold jewellery. The design is to be screen printed and so has been made up of only 5 colours.

These boobs were made for walkies…

29 Jun

These boobs were made for walkies,
And that’s just what they’ll do.
One of these days these boobs are gonna…

…walk all over Bristol to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research and cancer care!

I will be walking the Bristol Sun Walk this Sunday. Everyone who is taking part in the walk gets sent a Wonderbra to decorate and wear on the day. Here is my bra – not the most practical of outfits, but I am looking forward to wearing it all the same (haven’t quite worked out how I am going to get to the starting line without looking like a total goon yet!).

If you are able to sponsor me for this event, that would be AMAZING – even just a couple of quid would be very much appreciated!!

Thanks y’all 🙂

Dutty boys…

Just thought I’d post up this pic I found from the Foo Fashion show in Bristol last month…
The t-shirt this guy is wearing has a gold logo that I designed for the Dutty shop – nice!

The way things are…

20 Feb

Holy moly – it’s hard work being a Mum!!
Obviously I am a very lucky person to have such a beautiful little girl to hang out with all day, but it ain’t ‘alf tough at the top! I can’t help but think at the moment that my Monday-Friday cycle is somewhat like Groundhog Day, with absolutely no time ever to actually achieve anything…
…some days it feels like a minor miracle just managing to get my hair brushed!

I think one of the things I find the hardest (even harder than getting up 3 times in the night, every night and consequently being like a total zombie all day) is not having the time to get on with all my creative whatnots. I spend a lot of time whilst I am up feeding Jet late at night thinking about all the lovely things I could make if I only had the time. I did start my first knitting project in a LONG TIME last week, so I am looking forward to getting that finished and up on here – but I have so many other ideas that I would love to be able to get on with. Hopefully as the small person gets older, she will start sleeping better and I will find it easier to motivate myself into making more things in the evenings.

I had my fist official night out last week and went to a burlesque show out in Bristol. It was SO great being out of the house and back to my old tricks again (albeit completely sober this time round!) 🙂
I borrowed a ludicrously beautiful corset from my very talented friend Gill who makes fancy clobber for a living. Thanks very much Gill – it felt great to be all dressed up for a change and the corset managed to hide a multitude of my post-pregnancy ‘body issues’!
See pics below, taken by him indoors – and if you’ve got a spare minute, head on over to Gill’s blog, Always Stylish – the girl is a blummin’ genius!

Totterdown Art Trail 2009 :)

23 Nov

Oh my outrageously busy weekend…

It was the Totterdown Art Trail this weekend and as ever, it was blummin’ ace!

It was a real mission to get everything sorted this year with the little one here too, but having worked my socks off for the last couple of weeks, it all came together and I was really pleased with how my exhibition looked in the end. Jet proved to be entirely useless at helping me to get everything ready, but I think she did a good job of wooing all the punters during opening hours! 🙂

Here’s some lovely pics courtesy of the old ball and chain:

More details after the jump…
