The positive spin on my truly horrendous start to 2011 is this - I am now surrounded by trees and family, in the most peaceful setting if you don't count the MOOs of Zoe the mournful cow across the road, with a new studio space, a new respect for my health and a returning sense of humour.  

All very temporary until I fly away in August, maybe September.

Until then, slowly restocking and getting involved with new designs, new stockists, new plans.

Will be opening my online shop again soon. With a super SALE of discontinued cushions to make way for my organic cotton/ hemp range and new products. Not overdoing it though. If anybody hears me even mention the word MARKETS please, somebody, throw me down a deep, dark well where I can't escape.

In the meantime, inhaling the country air, walking the dog, swimming in the ocean, looking at trees. Endless trees.

Hi Carmel. I;m so pleased to hear that you are rejuvenating and planning no more markets. I was so much happier when I stopped doing them. And your profile photo made me laugh out loud although I'm not sure that is the reaction you wanted. Keep taking care of yourself. x

A bit of market burn out, eh?

Funny I was about to apply for finder's Keepers for the winter season.
