Showcase in Urbis

As part of Manchester in Fashion, a range of my work has been selected to be showcased in Urbis, the uber cool museum of urban life in Manchester City Centre. I've also snuck on to the guest list to see Wayne Hemmingway talk on Thursday about being a fashion entrepreneur, hoorah!

Leaves apron

This is my entry for the Howies/Folksy competition, 'Life is complicated, sport is simple', with the slightly tenuous suggestion that baking should be a sport...well, it should!

There's been a bit more activity in the Craft Centre today, apparently we were in the Guardian on Saturday, which might be why...
I've been doing some experiments in my sketchbook, loving ,my scalpel today!

Well, it's the preview of the Yorkshire and Lancashire Textile Open this afternoon, where I'm exhibiting a piece of work. But I can't go as I have to look after my shop! So no free booze and canapes for me! Boo :( Let's hope it's a busy day with lots of sales to make up for the disappointment :)

...all the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey...Well not all the leaves, but the sky is definitely grey! So my Autumn window still has a touch of s/s about it so I don't get too miserable. But I'm working on my A/W collection, so watch this space! I'm gathering lovely warm, luxurious, organic fabrics together to make some cosy treats.
