Follow Me On
- A few of my spoils from my recent visit to @fabworksmillshop - pic 2 wools ✅ pic 3 waxed and showerproof ✅ pic 4 cottons and linens ✅ and of course pic 5 a couple of knits ✅ Can't wait to get cracking on these, the epic pre-wash has begun.....What a fabulous finale to our holiday. Salt's Mill and Saltaire are just as wonderful as I remember. It might sound a bit melodramatic but seeing all of Hockney's "The Arrival of Spring" iPad drawings printed so large, in such a beautiful setting made me feel a bit teary. I think they are tapping into some deep yearnings within me, plus I read a book of interviews with Hockney just after my dad died in which he talked a lot about creating these pieces and how much that particular East Yorkshire landscape meant to him. Anyway, there you go, the power of art 'n' all that. . . Also pictured - Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics in the Salt's Mill bookshop 🤗 was the cherry on today's cake. Plus some gorgeous paintings of and inspired by Salt's Mill by @kittynorthartistHow I love thee Yorkshire 💚 I know I'm probably biased but I really can't think of anywhere better. Pictured: 1 - me and @gypsyandmarmite on the Trans Pennine Trail yesterday 2 - ultimate house goals 3 - river Don 4 - no description required 😜We also found some little treasures in the local antique shop ✅ Wade porcelain ✅made in England 🐟👌 #madeinengland #englishceramics

McQueen had a rare talent to produce beautifully crafted pieces and alongside a handful of other designers, past and present, is a designer whose work I respect and find inspiring. This weighty tome is published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to accompany their spring 2011 exhibition in celebration of McQueen’s work.
The cover has an eerie holographic image of McQueen morphing into a metallic skull. The book is beautifully bound in brown fabric with metallic embossed title down the spine and when you open it…
There are lengthy and interesting introductions by the curator of the exhibition Andrew Bolton and by the respected fashion journalist Susannah Frankel, but the book is dominated by beautiful photographs of some of McQueens key works alongside quotes from the man.
In future, when I feel in need of a little creative pick-me-up, I know where I’ll be going.
