Exciting Monday

The first ideas
Susse Mood Board a few months ago It may be rainy and gloomy out side but Monday is very exciting here in the studio finally the new Susse Samples arrive for Summer 2008/2009. It is always exciting to see the final product after all the development from mood board and rough ideas drawn in my sketch book transformed into final bags and new home wares. I hope something exciting is happening for you this Monday?

Mina's Fun Shop Display

Mina Perhonen is one of my favorite designers from Japan and I visited his store in Tokyo last year. I did get lost but it was worth walking in the rain and visiting his store. He has a new store in Kyoto and I just love the dog table and clothes rack.
Mina creates wonderful textile designs and applies them to clothing and home wares.

New Year Resolutions

How is going with your New Year Resolutions? Personally I don't have many but one of them is to finish off sowing projects. I get excited with a project and then the plastic bags of unfinished projects start to pile up. I am working through them. I finally finished my cushion covers which have been in a bag for about 5 months. I think it was the hand sowing putting me off. Here they are and Christmas was a great time to finish them off.

Cute Book From Korea

Thanks to my friend Lily in Korea who sent me this gourgeous book of tiny illustrations I am not sure who the Artists is but I think they are famous in Korea. I find so much inspriation in this little book. The drawings just make you smile as they are so charming. It has inspired me to start my own little book of illustrations. Now I have my new groovy Wacom Tablet from Santa this Christmas I am on my way to make some creative ideas happen. This is a book difinetly on the cute factor 10.
