Very excited to have made my newly printed postcard fabric into cushions with velvet backs, perfect for autumn, although it is unseasonaly warm here at the moment. I'll post more images soon and get my online shop stocked, it's on my to do list! What I love about the collage fabric designs is that the base for them were my mums old postcards from the 70's, one from her friend traveling through New Mexico and the other from her Grandma (my Great Grandma) from somewhere in the UK.

So the weekend didn't quite prove to be the spectacular finish to the empty shop piece that we were hoping. In fact although we very much like bits of the piece we really don't like it visually all together. But that's OK because we did it to experiment and push the boundaries. We will carry on working on it, it's a bit like having a studio in the public eye. Even though we not sure about the outcome yet, I am still really pleased with what we've produced, we just need to make it sit together better, and whats the point in making if you can't experiment...

We've been working hard to get this piece finished over the weekend. The work will be completed by next Saturday when we will have a little celebration, or a sleep, one of the two! This week we have still to laser cut our vinyl pieces and do a lot more paper work. If your in the area, Victoria Road, Thornton, Lancs, you'll be able to watch the piece grow over the next week. We'll be there most evenings, so come and say hello!
