Visited the Love Me Live with Me - the Designed & Made wonder cart - a customised vintage handcart which has been travelling around London and the North East of England for Design Week. The miriad drawers and cupboards reveal a cornucopia of badges, glass, ceramics and a lot more including rats! The deal is if you receive a piece from the cart you have to live with it for a week and then pass it on.
My gift is a beautiful limited edition of 13 (mine is number 13) embroidery kit with a porecelain medal and a velvet cushion.
The postcards make good bookmarks - and possibly marraige invitation cards!
The vintage linen cover for the medal and cushion was printed with a bird so I have embroidered it with a strand of some of the threads inclided in the kit.
Teddy is wearing the medal to go with his Jacobite outfit made by Rachael Burns - the medal has the letters CS stamped into it - maybe for the Bonnie Prince.

I have long harboured a jug obsession - especially slip decorated earthenware.
Recently at the V&A I spotted a lovely pot with slip decoration of leaves and a dedication to Mrs Shoosmith of Caterbury. I designed two new screenprints - one based on the V&A jug and one on my favourite stripy jug.

When it is freezing and you are surrounded by a monochrome landscape - which is beautiful, you get wistful memories of the colours of summer. I made a colour chart of colours sampled on a walk up our lane on a day last summer, which in turn inspired a set of promotional cards I designed.
