Followed by reading the blog by one of my design heros Sarah Campbell
Then a great summer trip to France and Spain, seeing fields of ripe sunflowers.
Then finding a lovely cotton sheet for £3 at a flea market.
I know, I wish I had bought the other one now
Painting the cloth with lovely big blousy sort of sunflowers.
Had to be in the garden as the kitchen table had been taken over by a variety of other projects.
Then a frustrating couple of days teaching with fingers itching to get it started.
I know, I am always telling the learners that life shouldn't get in the way of making things.
and Ta Dah........a new sunflower skirt.
Not bad, from February to September.
I'm off to wander through fields wearing it trying to look like something from the Boden catalogue.
Well, when I say fields, I mean the bit where everyone walks their dogs.
