Patchwork blanket

Recently clearing out our loft I found some lovely old childhood clothes of mine with beautiful patterns on that I felt I had to make into something. I combined them with other remnants of my favorite fabrics/sentimental fabrics and my favourite spring colors at the moment to make a patchwork and this was the result (Its not quite finished yet I need to back it with a nice wool that I'm currently trying to source). I love patchwork!

Spring inspiration

I've had a spring clean of my inspiration board. I loved all the beautiful greens and fresh spring colours in the interiors of this months Elle Decoration and I'm generally feeling quite inspired by spring on the whole. (Horray winter is over). I gathered all this inspiration together to help me start designing patterns for the picnic mat/deck-chairs I want to make.
