'My Creative Journey' Tag

Robyn from 'Robyn Makes Things' recently tagged me in the 'Creative Journey' tag that Lauren created (lovely idea). It is a good chance for me to try and reflect on my where I started to where I am now.

I know I am a little late with a 'Hello Autumn' post but today is the first day it has really felt like it for me, what with the nights drawing in quicker and the air feeling super cold. I also invested in possibly the best thing i've ever bought, in my opinion, a super warm mustard knitted scarf!! Now I am on the hunt for matching gloves and a bobble hat and I will be completely fit for winter. My immune system however will not be!

Whitworth Art Gallery & Manchester Museum

Whilst in Manchester last weekend I took a quick visit to The Whitworth Gallery and my favourite section, no surprise, was the shop. The main reason for this being that they stock a few Donna Wilson items, like the fox scarf, cushions and socks <3 I wanted to buy the socks with a mustard top but they only stocked them in 'mens' sizes 7-10 so wouldn't fit my feet *sigh*.

Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair

This weekend I took a trip to Manchester for the 'Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair' that showcased a wide variety of work from jewellery and ceramics to interiors and home wares and fashion textiles.

A Quick Update

This week was 'colour week' at University which this time last year I would have been completely petrified of but ever since the 'coastal wanders' project I have felt a lot more confident and a little less scared to use it.
 So I have gone for bold, vibrant colours and shapes to fit in with my theme of allotments but also as a bit of a contrast I used unconventional colours (for instance the tomatoes being Turquoise and Green!).

You may have read the previous post about my visit to Saltaire to wander around Salts Mill and be in awe of David Hockneys work. 
Well, I have some more lovely pictures for you as whilst wondering around the village I came across 'RADSTUDIO!', a design shop offering modern home wares and gifts from lovely designers around the world including the UK, Switzerland, Denmark and Portland.
