It is hard to do anything in this heat, thank goodness for DVD's (for the kids) and Pinterest (for me)!
I'm working on a new fabric collection Midnight Sun right now, just waiting for the printed swatches to arrive.
My mind has been in the far north of the world for the past few months, places like Sweden, Norway, Finland, Karelia, Russia (again!) and Iceland.

Either way, it has been wonderful to research the history, geography and cultures of these regions. Collecting information and images to inspire a collection is probably my favourite part of the design process, and definitely the easiest! If you are interested you can see some of my research resources on my Pinterest board Midnight Sun.
Take a look at my designs at my Spoonflower shop too, they are not all finalised yet and will be made available for sale as I am satisfied with the printed results.
I'm always keen to have feedback about the designs so please do get in touch and let me know what you think.
