Missoni and Staffordshire.

 Made myself a couple of Missoni skirts, so unbelievably quick and simple to make and comfortable to wear.

 I've always loved staffordshire china and recently bought these two in a lovely antique shop in Newlyn, Victoria. The big one has had a severe break through her waist and his neck  but has been repaired a very long time ago. I think it just adds to their charm but it was accordingly, very cheap.

 The spaniels came from an auction.

Baby Sophisticates

 More Baby Sophisticates for our bubby.

Made some book marks inspired by my Liberty diary.
 Have never grown lilac like this before in our roaring 40s garden.
I made myself this simple tunic using a favourite old tunic for a pattern.

 Back in July/August we went to London to see our new grandson who is completely beautiful!
 Angel on St Pauls.
 An extremely large foot in the British Museum. So old and so  breathtakingly perfect.
 We went to Loop. I actually held a little Julie Arkell creation in my hand.
And in the British Museum I saw two Mrs Delany collages.
