I am in love with Sweden because...........



My lovely friend Carla that I went to senior school with lives there.....


because there is so much space and the beauty of it takes your breath away.....



because although Carla speaks Swedish her partner IS Swedish and is really funny
.............



because the shops in Stockholm are very very chic.....



because the air is sooo clear and clean and everyone has fab gardens.......




because the cafes are so nice I could move in!!!






because the vintage linen is gorgeous
..........




because the whole lovely place has real old fashioned values in a modern way
.....
Adrian and I loved our holiday.....thanks Carla and Glyn you really made it fabulous.
Hope you are all having lovely holidays too.
Love and hugs Lynn xxxxxx

On my shelf.........................

I had to draw my shoe....................

I just had to embroider this bird
.......



I've been printing vintage hemp..............



I don't want to do any work like cleaning up or ironing now...
Just for today I want to sew and read and dangle my feet in the river...just for today..I am in love with the colour 'bone' and cool shadows and the sky looking the best grey I have ever seen. These are some corners of my unkempt world...because today I'm doing nothing I don't want to do...nothing at all....

Whats happening in the city..........



Walking back at dusk


I have just returned from a fabulous weekend of work at New Designers in London........
I have just spent three days with our students and many many other students from all over England's University's all displaying their beautiful work from their Degree Shows.
Each student produces the most divine cards with snippets of their fabulous work, you can see some of the many I have collected.
There is of course a great sadness as we say goodbye to our third year students, and the silent corridors at work no longer ring with their laughter and tears. But they are our stars of tomorrow twinkling in the darkness of night and I for one feel so lucky to have worked with them for this short time and am all the richer for it.
Love and hugs always

Air and water...........................


















All of these beautiful images are from the art of J Morgan Puett
This week has been strange......the heat has changed so much, water has become warm like air, and the air is heavy and liquid with fragrances, of orange blossom, and rich wet earth, the days slide seamless into the shadows of evening, and the swallows swoop endlessly over the shimmering fields. I feel as if a gift has been given...a hopefulness..... a joy....not tangable, it cannot be held, yet it swirls around my head........ half in air half in water...a mystery...a treasure.
Thankyou so much for all of your lovely comments love Lynn xxx
