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!!!

    I love Emma’s designs…and have just hooked one from her blog…great that she has so many fabulous fun knits in the Debbie Bliss book.
    Really looking forward to seeing the fruits of your designs and Lynne’s too. You are all very enterprising and creative ladies!
    I know how much talent has been enriched by Fibre and Clay and how many friendships have been made

Finally sewed buttons on this crochet cardi, despite having a drawer full of buttons, I ended up using a scrap of liberty print to cover some blanks. Yarn is @thefibrecompany Luma, which is so soft. The blend of natural fibres  make it perfect for baby makes. I buy mine from @tangledyarnuk . Teeny scissors were bought from @beyond_measure_uk

Yes, I know "everyone" on instagram sleeps under crumpled linen duvets, but after 30 years we're still using the king size Thomas the Tank Engine duvet my mother in law made as a house warming present. The other side has a more femenine print so we can take turns. Secretly, this side is my favourite!!

There's something about this colour palette that makes me want to get my knitting needles out - and another part of me that wants to be prepared & find my recipe for oak gall ink!!! Yes, still early August, but part of me is already embracing autumn!!
