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!

  • The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!

Can you read that  card? A valet to whiten your converse! Brought back memories of  whitening my Dunlop green flash in the 70's!!!
#chatsworth #converseallstars #conversetrainers Strange sky tonight. Common hogweed. Even the weeds look beautiful in the sunshine today. The flowers and  stems of this one are destined for the dye pot. There are lots of varieties of hogweed, if in doubt don't touch - the sap is highly irritant, even poisonous in some. 
#hogweed #foraging #ecodye #permaculture  #naturaldye #slowliving #bakingandmaking Everyone loves elderflowers - even the cockchafers (maybugs). Last night we sat in the garden drinking the first batch of elderflower champagne, watching the bats & the moths and listening to a blackbird serenading us. The hedgerows are full of elderflowers & champagne is easy to make (easier than cordial), if you have white wine vinegar, lemons & sugar. Click on the link in my bio and type "elderflower champagne" in the search bar.
