Exciting Times

I can’t tell you how excited I was to read this post from my lovely friend Emma today. No-one deserves to have their designs recognised more than Emma, she has such a great eye and really knows how to design things I want to make!

I was lucky enough to meet Debbie Bliss when she came to a trunk show at Fibre and Clay, which is also the place I first met Emma. Interestingly, I also met Lynne at that same trunk show.  Lynne and I have our own exciting news, which you can read about on Lynne’s blog. But, nothing made me whoop for joy quite so much as reading Emma’s news. If you see the Debbie Bliss Fall magazine on the newsstands, buy it, not just for Emma’s beautiful designs, but also to see why Debbie Bliss remains the most inspiring, entertaining and creative knitwear designers the UK currently has.

 

How can I begin to count the ways in which Fibre and Clay has changed my life? It will be missed

  2. Aww what a lovely blog post – I can see that you’ll miss fibre and clay such a lot Tracey. I was soooo excited too with Emmas news – her hats are truly gorgeous. I saw them first and thought wow -they’re totally fab, then I found out they were designed by Emma and that really made me smile. She really deserves her success. We have a lot to live up to!!!

  • So proud of my crochet pupils on today's  workshop at @ditzyrosemakes . Most had never picked up a hook before, but fuelled by copious mugs of tea, cake & mutual encouragement they can now officially call themselves crocheters! Thankyou all for coming & being such fun to work with xxx

New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months

About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.

Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.
