Today I am sharing the beautiful new fabric Lucy June from Riley Blake Designs designed by Lila Tueller.

Summer Picnic – Mini Picnic Mat

When a fabric collection is named after one of your favourite past-times then it would simply be rude not to make something picnic related with it!

2019 – A Review

Happy New Year! I swear it was only the start of 2019 not so long ago, but I guess the calendar doesn’t lie! The end of 2019 and the start of this year (already!) has been difficult, with a cascade of bad news, worry and stress.
