Just a few of many interesting fonts and signs I saw in Amsterdam. Good at design those Dutch.

Things have been quietly busy. The weather has been hot and I've been reluctant and bored of working on my own. My good friend came to help me out in the studio last week and it was such a relief to have helping hands. It's not even about the amount you get done but the rhythm you get into when working with someone else by your side is something I've really missed.
Many hands make light work. Not even many hands, but perhaps just an extra pair is a good place to start.

I thought I'd lost this film as I opened the back of my camera when it hadn't finished being wound on. Then I just thought I may as well get it developed and it turns out all the pictures are there in tacked, which is nice.
We went to the Netherlands back in April and these photos where taken on a sunny afternoon in Amsterdam. We stopped off for lunch in a pretty little cafe and then had a beer in the park. I fell a bit in love with Nether-Netherlands.

After seeing so many lovely quilt creations over on Junkaholique, I was inspired to make this quilt for a friend of mine who recently had a little bub. It's made from scraps and left overs from dressmaking and is mainly Liberty fabrics or organic cotton. The whole thing is very blue and really quite wonky, but it was my first attempt so I'm pretty chuffed. I was quite surprised at the amount of little squares you could get from what seemed like a useless amount of fabric. Definitely something I'll be doing with all my other mountains of scraps I create every week.

These are photos from a lovely customer Lisa Marie's blog. I made her a custom Liberty print dress a few months ago using one of my favourites the Ianthe pattern in a glorious pink.
I've just realised whilst typing this that I have been thinking that 'Ianthe' is 'Lanthe' for years now and have just noticed I'm wrong. Turns out lower case Ls and upper case Is looks similar. Oh well.
