/ / Shirt - old old H&M / Skirt - homemade \ \

I thought I'd lost this film as I opened the back of my camera when it hadn't finished being wound on. Then I just thought I may as well get it developed and it turns out all the pictures are there in tacked, which is nice.

We went to the Netherlands back in April and these photos where taken on a sunny afternoon in Amsterdam. We stopped off for lunch in a pretty little cafe and then had a beer in the park. I fell a bit in love with Nether-Netherlands.

A Quilt

Posted on: Tuesday, 8 July 2014

After seeing so many lovely quilt creations over on Junkaholique, I was inspired to make this quilt for a friend of mine who recently had a little bub. It's made from scraps and left overs from dressmaking and is mainly Liberty fabrics or organic cotton. The whole thing is very blue and really quite wonky, but it was my first attempt so I'm pretty chuffed. I was quite surprised at the amount of little squares you could get from what seemed like a useless amount of fabric. Definitely something I'll be doing with all my other mountains of scraps I create every week.

Custom Ianthe Dress

These are photos from a lovely customer Lisa Marie's blog. I made her a custom Liberty print dress a few months ago using one of my favourites the Ianthe pattern in a glorious pink.

I've just realised whilst typing this that I have been thinking that 'Ianthe' is 'Lanthe' for years now and have just noticed I'm wrong. Turns out lower case Ls and upper case Is looks similar. Oh well.

I really like Metronomy and I really like this song and video. The pen marks are good and satisfying. The main man is from Torquay originally so that is a nice thing too.

Over Easter we went to Holland but before we set sail we had a few days staying with my sister in sunny Southend. I loved it. The weather was beautiful and it felt so classic and British summer sea side towny. A lot of time was spent collecting shells and beach glass and people watching along the sea front.

With all the beautiful beach huts, long piers and fair ground rides I felt thoroughly inspired, so I'll add it to my never ending list of places I'd like to use for summer photoshoots.
